Be Inspired #143 A New "Farmhouse Porch"

Hey Everyone, time for Be Inspired
the place to share what's been inspiring you this week.


I love this "Farmhouse Style Front Porch"
from Kristen at Sophia's
This is Kristen's mom's new construction home with a great nod to Farmhouse Style. The wonderful red wicker chairs and baskets of flowers highlight that amazing red front door. What fantastic curb appeal!


Red Industrial Light fixtures




love this house!


Who of us haven't walked right past a credenza just like this, not even thinking about what kind of transformation it could have? You'll want to see the "before" of this great makeover!

Television Console Before and After
from Laurel at the North End Loft



Karen brings out the red, white, and blue for Patriotic Dress Up 
at Brayton Homestead, her beautiful Massachusetts home.



I've bought and sold many of these vintage drop leaf tables, but I'd never thought about turning one into a perfect little French Style DIY Potting Table. Take a look at this makeover from Janet at the Decorating Diaries.



Cindy at Dwellings "married" this wonderful cupboard with a snazzy little green Hoosier cabinet bottom to come up with a perfect kitchen display piece. She then filled it with her collection of Roosters. cock-a-doodle do!


And for a yummy Summertime dessert how about these
  CooLicious Lemon and Lime Cookies



Epic Linen is our sponsor of the day. They carry wonderful linen kitchen items, beautiful tablecloths, curtains, and also a line of linen fabrics by the yard. Hope you'll run by their shop and browse around.




Hope you'll come link up your inspiring posts this week. Please have a link back to Common Ground within your post to be featured. If you've been featured please feel free to grab the image below.
