The Southern Nest Blog

My life.

My life.

It’s been so stinking long since I have been here, I barely know where to start.  I want to give a very glamorous reason as to why I have been sparse with my writing, but I haven’t got one.  I have simply been too flipping tired. My normal day consists of being woken to up […]

It’s Finally Happening-Southern Nest Vintage Collection is here & and it’s going to be on WCCB Charlotte!

  It all started with furniture.     My passion lies in refinishing furniture and repurposing found objects to create a classy, Southern design.  That’s how Charming Little Nest first started and as Southern Nest evolved from the blog, furniture took a backseat.  Well, the time has come.  After two years-TWO YEARS-of being on the […]

Broken air conditioner during a southern summer? No.

Broken air conditioner during a southern summer? No.

It’s hot. I know it’s not just hot here in NC…but our air conditioner decided to check out. Womp womp. I spent the day last Friday stuck at home while ‘Mike the repair man’ tried to figure out the issue. (Bonus-he took care of two wasps that snuck into our house. Cool air and a […]

My Dining Room Design…All of the Painting and Gluing Craziness

The ReStore ReStyle 2014 event is done and I had so much fun.  I am still so worn out from the chaos of the past two weeks.  I have done so many projects my head is spinning.  And now I want to break it all down for ya.  First off, here is the final product.  […]

It all started […]

Wooden Monogram Eye Candy

Wooden Monogram Eye Candy

I feel so fortunate and touched that a Southern Nest monogram has graced the walls of nurseries, been part of weddings, traveled with women to be part of their new home and remind them of their Southern roots, served as inspiration for a room design or home improvement project…I am just nothing short of thankful.   If you see […]

Miss Me?

Miss Me?

Well, guess what? I’m baaaaack! 🙂 Yeah…I’ve been able to get the occasional post in here and there. But not many. I have been so busy with the operations of Southern Nest, I literally have not had the time. This time last year, Southern Nest functioned as a team of two people. Now, there are […]

I Finally Did It.

I Finally Did It.

I have written this post in my head more times than I can remember.   Now that it is time, I sit here, feeling at a loss for words. Let me start by saying….I did it.  Here’s my story. For the past 6 years, I have had a great career in pharmaceutical sales.  I loved my […]
