100th Post Giveaway
Cue the confetti! Pop the prosecco!
This is my 100th post on The Nesting Game! 100 DIO (did it ourselves) projects, shopping trips, pipe dreams and several cans of spray paint later, we have reached this landmark. One, I hope, that is the first of many.
Whether you’ve been here since the beginning or are just stumbling upon my little corner of the internet, I wanted to give you a little something to say thanks. But what can adequately express my appreciation for your comments, compliments and page views?
Lovely, no? Remember mauve?
Laminated fabric, too. A quick flip over revealed that this little guy came from The Bombay Company back in the day. After peeling back the the mauve-lous print, I discovered someone had covered over the original cream-colored fabric.
Well, now it’s got a new life, and soon I hope it has a new home. Yours, maybe?
I primed and painted the base black. The turned legs look so much sassier now.
Then I covered the top with fabric from the Amy Butler Lotus collection. Temple Garland in the Sky colorway. I bought several yards of this before we moved into the house, but plans changed (as they do) and we never used it.
I knew I wanted to zhuzh it up a bit (had to Google how to spell that), so I dug through the bag of buttons I’ve had for 20 years or so and found the perfect one from a J.Crew jacket that Taylor says makes me look like a construction cone.
I drilled two holes very close together through the bottom of the cushion and tried my hand at tufting.
And while I’m very happy with the way it turned out, I’m super excited to give it to one of you!
