This week’s DIY is definitely one to tweet about! Although many of us city-dwellers don’t have the opportunity to hang birdhouses in our backyards, that doesn’t mean we can’t use them at all! We used trim, paint and rosettes to flip a basic bird house into an adorable bird cottage! This bird house might not be able to withstand the elements, but would look adorable as a decorative piece. Make a few and cluster them around your living room or bedroom for an instantly shabby-chic look.

2. Glue pleated trim to the rim of the bird house roof.

When it comes to design, fashion, and home decor; the word “coral” evokes a bold color that balances beautifully between red, orange and pink.

We prefer just to use these beauties as inspiration, as we think the real thing belongs in the sea.
