My name is Brittany and I am a Pinterest addict…It’s an obsession…this is not a secret! I could spend hours on Pinterest just looking through fun DIY and decorating ideas. Okay, maybe not hours, but for long periods of time and several times per week. Pinterest is a fabulous place to get inspiration if you enjoy making things and getting a little creative.
I love the bird houses hanging on the wall! What a unique and fun idea for our country home! Time to shop for the perfect bird houses. Why do bird houses have to cost a million dollars? It’s a bird house…4 pieces of decorative wood with a little roof…why why why? My budget friendly answer: the flea market. I found this quaint little shop at the flea market that sells all sorts of crafty things. The owners spend all week gathering left over materials from everywhere and craft to sell every weekend. What a fun job! Anyways, they sold me these little gems for $12 a piece and they are exactly what I was looking for. Old barn wood with rusted out hardware and license plates as the roof. These bird houses went on the wall in our little powder room.
Again, I wish I would have snapped a before picture of the power room before we redid it…but I didn’t, so let me paint a quick mental picture for you. Yucky wall paper with a floral design below the shelf molding, ugly flat paneled cabinet doors, outdated fixtures/hardware and a boring mirror. A few updates made:
- Added granite as sink top with vessel sink bowl
- Added vessel faucet
- Added new mirror (cheap from TJ Maxx – love that place)
- Added new light fixture
- Painted walls in neutral color
- Added custom paneled cabinet doors
