Built in NOOK goodies

I'm sort of afraid that I've built this up so much in my head that it won't be like I picture it in my head!  EVERYTHING Matt has done I'm tickled pink with and couldn't be happier.  Now that it's time to decorate...I'm afraid! ;-) You all are probably sick of hearing about the nook at this point too! SORRY!  Anyway, wanted to show you, I took some old frames and some goodwill frames and some antique frames and painted them flat white to unify the look.  I don't know if all of these photos are staying in the frames there are a couple I KNOW I'm not leaving in.  2 of the frames are from Ikea so they are a slightly different white.  So these are some of the things that will be on the walls.  Plus I drew a Robin this morning (I copied it a quite a bit from the Robin drawing I have in the foyer), if I get brave enough, I may paint that right above the built in book shelf that doesn't have shelves yet in this photo.  For years, we had a squirrel I painted above our laundry room door. (We had a baby one when I was little!) I don't know, we'll see.  I really want the goodness on the walls to be representive of US and who we are and what we like.  I hope I haven't bored you all!

Dear, dear, Robyn...
With the name Robyn I would think you would love birds and so did your Mother who named you!

I had a Friend her name was Robyn and she opened a shop and Called it..."Robyn's Nest"
I just loved it with the logo being a bird on a nest :)

You make take anything with you that inspires you from my bolg:)
I am flattered that you would want to!

I also paint the signs with birds on them and inspirational words that tug at an emotion or two :)
Go check out my signs and side bar art posted.

I am going back to check out your works of art on your blog as well.

Keep inspiring us with your passion for birds as well.

Bore me...not a chance! I love seeing how others live. Your mosaic is beautiful. I love the robin idea, the sketch is amazing. Great job! The nook is going to be so cool.
And I wish you could have gone to FC with me too!

I love everything you've got going here, especially the light fixture. Very cool!

I like your idea about the paint on these letters. They are pretty cool by themselves, but I thought i might play around with some of them.

So glad you joined in today.

Yes, paint that robin on the wall! You did a wonderful job drawing it, and I think it's a fantastic idea to paint it. I love when people do things like that to make their home unique!
