Reader Question

“You were my original inspiration for my house almost 6 years ago. I found you on Pinterest. What is a good time frame for redecorating?”

Hi Friend! Thanks for your question on Instagram (if you are not following me on Insta meet me there at Blueeggbrownnest and find me on Pinterest too! They have a lot of new features).

I love this question.

The small, less-pricey items like pillows/pillow covers and accessories like books and planters, rugs you can easily replace without breaking the bank. There are so many places to shop now. I probably do this every 2-3 years.

A step up from that is counter stools, coffee tables, lamps and chairs I replace or reupholster around 5 years.

The big, expensive items like couches is about 10 years.

And when you are stuck in your house being safe from COVID, after 10 months, I give you permission to change all of it! Kidding, but I know it’s hard being indoors and staring at the same furniture.

I thought it would be fun to do a little trip down blog memory lane. So many of these furnishings have been sold or replace mine the bigger items. Pix start from 2009



Thanks to two of my cute sister in laws, Regina and Shannon, and their motivation to keep Blue Egg current, I have decided to ramp up my Instagram account. (My other SILs are super cute too just not quite as, ahem, young. Ah, to be young and in the know.)

Many of you keep up with me on my website feed and Facebook and I love it! Instagram is a great way to see, well, pretty pictures that inspire me in my daily life. It’s quick and fun.

Come follow Blue Egg Brown Nest on Instagram! I’ve had a personal page for a few years now, but recently started a Blue Egg Brown Nest page.

Not quite sure what Instagram is? It’s kinda like Facebook but only with images that you can post. People can follow you kinda like Twitter. It’s fast and easy. Basically, I post pictures and you look at them 🙂 You can start your own page and do some cool things with filters like this…
