Danielle Oakey Interiors

I am thrilled to have Danielle Oakey guest posting for me today! I am a HUGE fan of her blog, and her work! Her DIY's are seriously my favorites! Danielle has been a big help to me, as I am new to this blogging thing, and I am so grateful for her.

Hi, I am Danielle from Danielle Oakey Interiors.
I am so happy to be at Cove Street today.
I have loved getting to know Katie over the last couple months.
I absolutely adore her and her son's nursery bedding, beautiful!

Katie asked me to share my favorite DIY project.
My Animal Silhouette Plates are by far my favorite to date.
Simple, inexpensive, and make such a statement.

I purchased white porcelain plates from my local thrift store.
I printed out animal silhouettes from online, traced on black card stock, cut out, and mod podged to the plates.

See, I told you it was easy.
total cost: $13.00, now that is my kind of DIY!
I hung them with wall plate hangers from Michael's.

best part, my daughter loves them :)

In honor of Valentines Day, I thought I would share what I am loving right now.
I can't get enough of these Vintage Ceramic Owl Banks from the Etsy shop Fruit Fly Pie.

I think those are the cutest little banks I have ever seen.
Perfect for my daughter's room.
Now I just have to decide on what color!

Thanks for having me Katie, It was fun!

Those plates are perfect above the bed, Emory's room is darling! Thanks so much Danielle! Check out her blog Danielle Oakey Interiors, I promise it will become a daily read:) Happy Valentine's Day everybody!

P.S. Owen's Nursery is featured on Spearmint Baby today!!:)
