Fluffing My Nest

I had a little inspiration that prompted me to fluff the nest a bit.  I have never been happy with the decor on the hutch.  While out and about over the weekend we ventured into a little gift shop and I saw a piece that I knew would be perfect for this space.  Once we looked at the price tag and chatted Chuck thought he could make it for less.  He also pointed out that it might be too large for the space. 

Chuck took the vision and made this for me. 
 
Not exactly like the one in the shop, but perfect for what I envisioned.  I took that piece, some existing items, a print I received as a Christmas gift, and a couple of inexpensive items I purchased to change up this space. 
 
I'm really happy with how it turned out.  

I'll share a trick I use placing decor.  I use scrap wood under items to add height if needed.  
 
Without the added height the basket would be hidden and you wouldn't be able to read the bottom line of the sign completely.   
Now I need to decide if I am going to leave this natural or add some stain.  What do you think? 

Difficult roads often lead to beautiful destinations... keep moving forward, friends.

  3. Love it! Love the natural wood too, but may want to do a light stain for protection and to have it last for many years :-) Isn't it great to have handy husbands? Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

    Blessings,

  4. I think a stain would look really good

  5. I think I would choose clear polyurethane. It would protect it but not affect the overall look.
