BOTB 9.18.11

September 18th, 2011

Greetings all, so happy to be featuring some very inspirational posts and projects today!  I took a chance when I started this ‘Best of the Blogosphere’ series many months ago, and I have to say looking back I’m so glad I did.  There is so much ingenuity and creativity out there that and I love sharing my finds with you.  Again this week I teamed up with Amanda, and together we bring you our favorite picks, enjoy!

You can combine both rustic and glam by mimicking this look in your bedroom with this gold stenciled plank headboard by Simply Sjostedt  (via Creature Comforts).
