A white modern nursery, a coat rack made of recycled wood planks, a pillow stenciling tutorial, a cupcake owl cake and a cute pregnancy documentation idea for a second pregnancy!

If you don’t have a Pinterest account yet and would like an invite, just leave a comment asking for one and we’ll be sure to send it to you.

This coat tree takes recycled to a whole new level! A few wooden planks cleverly arranged like tree branches (held in place with a little wood glue and some nails), and a bench, are a creative way to warm up a small space — spotted on Kanelstrand {image via Marie Claire Idées}.

Stencil your own cushions! I spotted this colorful raincloud throw pillow and decided that I wanted to feature it in this Pinterest Monday post. Then I found out it was a DIY. YES! Check out the March 2011 issue of Covet Garden for a full tutorial on how to stencil your own cushions.

A hoot of a cake! I’m loving this creative arrangement of cupcakes that make up this cute owl cake — spotted on Family Fun. It’s a great idea for a birthday or classroom party!

I’m doubly excited about this Pinterest find. Not only is this photograph an adorable example of how to document a second pregnancy — with a little help from your firstborn — but it also introduced me to the inspiring photo blog Mom*tog, for moms who love photography.

Babble published a slideshow of the 10 Coolest Kids Rooms — and this retro modern white room is definitely my favorite. Not that the other nine rooms aren’t gorgeous too! But the pops of color and all the different prints and patterns make this a super fun kids’ room.

  1. that coat tree is awesome! I like it so much better than the traditional mud room. I have to remember to re-pin when I get back from work.

  2. I would love a Pinterest invite!
