Be Inspired: #148 Need a little Inspiration?

We had a Patriotic Party last week, but I invited everyone to feel free to share other posts that you had been working on. I didn't want to leave anyone out you know, and wow, so glad that you all shared some of your other Summer posts and projects. I wouldn't have wanted to miss these...

Evidently I have a "thing" for this color blue, since I realized that last week my feature was another fabulous blue piece of furniture... who knew? You'll want to check out this Farm Style Pantry Cabinet from Andrea at Town and Prairie. Andrea was having trouble coming up with a makeover plan for this old cabinet, but once she did, she gave it new life and a whopping personality.


it went from this


to this

Love the grain sack on the door, great job Andrea!!

Take a look at these spheres
 that Marty from A Stroll Thru Life spray painted.
 Isn't this a beautiful vignette?



I just love the simplicity and vintage charm on the front porch of
with these gorgeous red geraniums in this raw wood crate. 



shares her Sweet Cottage Love Story and thoughts on her upcoming move.
You might need a Kleenex.



Are you like me and wilt in the Summer?
I love a pretty chandy and light fixture as much as the next gal, but if I don't have air blowing on me, I just turn into a "hot mess" literally. Vickie from Ranger 911 came up with a great solution...the "Fandalier". As always, she wows me with her amazing DIY ideas and projects.




and a couple of great reclaimed wood pallet projects
 from Larissa at Prodigal Pieces

I always always always find exactly that here; inspiration.

I think that chandy fan is brilliant because no way on this hot earth is my hubs EVER going to let me lose all our ceiling fans, no way.

will have to consider that, it's a cool (ha ha, pun intended) idea!
