Oh, how we love the starry skies popping up all over the place lately. In artwork, in home products, in themed BEDROOMS! There is nothing more relaxing than a serene reminder of the skies over our heads.

Evita is Offbeat Home's local star-loving craftster. She brought us not only this AMAZING light-building tutorial but also a how-to on building a starry pelmet box to increase the efficiency of our windows.
