Welcome Home

Welcome to The Sterling Nest! I want to take a moment to introduce myself… a little getting to know you moment, if you will. I live in Small Town USA, Georgia and I love every bit of it! I grew up closer to a big city and you really just can’t beat the quiet country…

Renovation Final Update!

  Alright guys, the big reveal is here! In case you’re just joining me, my husband and I took on renovating an old mobile home about a year ago, and we are FINALLY done! Excuse the mess in some of the pictures, I had to get some quick snaps before we start moving our things…

Breathe Deep and Re-Focus

I’m going to keep today’s blog short and sweet. For one, I’ve got about…. 20 minutes before I have to leave to work on the mobile home renovation. Second, this post is just to kind of catch you up on where I’ve been for the past few months. 5 months ago, I lost my mom…

Elements of a Farmhouse-Style Home

Rustic farmhouse is by far one of my favorite interior styles. In fact, it’s the style that I’m working to create for my soon-to-be new home. That old country feel is comfortable, homey, and classic. The best part is, you don’t even have to live on a farm to incorporate it! If you’re looking to…

Trailer Renovation Update: Part I

I hope y’all had a great Father’s Day weekend! Last week was a little hectic, so I needed some rest, BAD. Jesse and I spent most of Saturday at the trailer, working on the renovation, and it’s really starting to pick up now. A couple weeks ago, I wrote that we were working on paneling…

As a quick update, we’ve been working diligently on the paneled…

Light Up the Night

In case you didn’t see my social media posts, I’ve been in New York City the past couple days, with my dad, to watch my brother graduate from vet school. I haven’t been to NYC since I was about 6 or 7 years old, so I didn’t really remember much about it. Seeing it through…

Mission: Organization – The DIY Diva saves the day

I’ll be the first to tell you, my life is organized chaos. Emphasis on the chaos. I’m sure none of you reading this can relate to that, right? Because of my on-the-go life, I’m always desperately looking for ways to get myself organized, and I especially love when I can combine that valiant pursuit with a cute DIY project….

Gotta Start Somewhere

We went over to the trailer tonight to continue our renovation project, and I managed to get some good shots that will serve as the ‘before’ pictures. We’ve already done a fair amount of work, like re-painting walls, but there’s still a lot to be done. Here are some of the pictures I took yesterday, so…
