Surprise Decor  

Posted by: Julie

The Nester is doing a series called
31 Days to a Better Dressed Nest.
She is currently on Day 4: Surprise

She says, "Call it whimsy, fun, quirky, unexpected, okay even dorky. But people are more relaxed around those who don't take themselves quite so seriously."

Here is my unexpected surprise:

What are my reasons for this quirky piece of decor?

1. We own an ice company
2. We are currently moving our company from it's current location to our home.
3. I've been in the process of re-decorating my kitchen.
4. My blog is called "The Ice House"

See, I have this really odd space in my kitchen and I never have found the right thing to go there. Turns out, it's the BEST EVER place for my husbands desk! (In the next few weeks I'll be painting it white so it matches the kitchen cabinets.)

Now that the desk is in place, the wall above it just called out for "ART".
Enter dear husband with this Ice House neon sign we had in our store. PERFECT!!! Now, I've just got to get that sucker hung on the wall...it weighs a TON!

Unusual? Yep!
Quirky? Yep!
Unexpected? Yep!
And perfect for our little "ice house"!

Yep, it meets all the criteria and is a great addition--I bet your man likes it too!

I love it! It is a N-ICE touch! :)

OH man, it's been ages since I've been here! I was running through comments from my blog and realized it was you and hopped over here!

This is such an awesome find! I bet it makes you smile every time you see it!

I'm going to have to check out Nester's challenge...I could use a pick me up after all this sickness!

God bless (and I love the oh so cute blog design...yeah, you've pbly had for a long time now...showing just how very long it has been since I've been here! Shame on me!)
