Be Inspired #152: Salvaged Treasures

Hi everyone, you all shared lot's of fun inspiration at last week's party. I know many of you are getting kiddos ready for school and finishing up Summer plans and projects, so thanks for coming by to join in on the fun! Let's see what was happening last week...

I really admire the ability to find a random vintage item and then transform it into something new and different. Betsy from My Salvaged Treasures knows how to think outside the box in giving her vintage items a whole new look and purpose. Last week she shared how she created this wonderful upcycled photo and jewelry display from a shelf of an old baker's rack.

Betsy's also shared an old cooler
that became a flower container.

She recreated a retro bench with a fun Union Jack pillow cover.

and old industrial office accessories are updated with numbers.

Thanks for giving us such great inspiration each week, Betsy!
And here are a few more links from last week:

a relaxing seating area in her summer Keeping Room.

Carol's home from Art and Sand is alive with wonderful color.
Have you seen her hubby's amazing paintings?


Nita from Mod Vintage Life
had a brilliant idea to create the easiest Chandelier ever...
Yes, a Vintage Birdcage with remote control candles.
(don't you love that yellow wicker chair?)

And Suzan from Simply Vintageous (along with her hubby)
has a fabulous makeover of a 70's Mediterranean Style Armoire
(these two are hilarious and need to go on the road)

And how about an Apple Crumble with Butterscotch Pudding
from Anjana At the Corner of Happy and Harried.

thanks gals, for sharing the inspiration!

French Bleu Vintage is in the Sponsor Spotlight today and most of you are familiar with Dee's wonderful Shop. She's been marking down some beautiful items in her French Estate Sale Department, so run over for a look to see the bargains. And while you're there, be sure and browse the rest of her shop for some amazing vintage finds.

thanks Dee!
