Fresh Coat Friday!

Happy Friday! Since you have all been so supportive and helpful with Fresh Coat Fridays I have decided that we will keep them going for as long as you all have photos to share (I was originally just thinking of doing it for the summer)! But to change up the pace a little I think will be nice to feature only 1 reader, just more photos from that 1 reader for 3 out of the 4 weeks every month. The first Friday of every month will still be the montage of every submission I receive up until then, but the other 3 Fridays will be projects or rooms submitted that just cannot be summed up in the 2 or 3 photos I usually allow. So if you have a fantastic room or grouping of projects and want to tell the world a little about it (you don't need a blog either, just email me the info!) then send it along!
**To accomodate this change I only ask that a maximum of 2 projects be submitted by each person too keep the first post of the month from becoming overwhelming or too lengthy**

To kick off our new Fresh Coat Friday Feature is new Mom and blogger, Krystle! On a tiny budget she made her tiny nursery (we're talking 6x9 here people!) wonderfully fun.

The adorable dresser was a $30 Goodwill score that looks like something out of a high-end kids boutique now. The little drawers will be perfect for storing tiny socks and diapers!

Only $40 on Craigslist, Krystle spent hours taping off spindles to paint in matching hues of turquoise and grey. Extra touches like this really make the room feel unique and add so much character to an otherwise standard crib.

Her little man, Asher, is one lucky little dude!

Even though the room is tiny you really don't notice the lack of space since everything flows so perfectly!

Wonderful work Krystle! You made everything in the room feel like a special touch and Asher is sure lucky to have such a thoughtful and creative Mama~
If you have a nursery or kids room with a few special touches link it up right here!
And stay tuned next week for the first Friday of the month montage!!!

So cute!!! Love this room! So funny, I made a very similar wall hanging (the bird houses one) for my living room. I had this sconce that was blah and I needed to make it look better. So I made a bird houses back drop, almost exactly like that one for it. Your's it super cute!!!
