Be Inspired #145 Vintage Eclectic

Before we start the party, I just want to say a big "Thank You" to all of you who come over here and link up each week. The number of link parties has grown exponentially since I started this party almost 3 years ago; at that time, just for vintage inspiration, now open to all inspired posts. I really appreciate each one of you who come to share your individual style, here. Part of my fun each week, is choosing one of you to highlight. I find new ideas and inspiration from you all each week! Today I want to share a link that had great vignettes and lots of styling pizzaz.

Meg from Oliver and Rust (formerly MT-Tails) has been working in her upstairs hallway, creating a wonderful space with a redone chippy console table, some industrial items, and a good measure of vintage style.

Woven Hampers, suitcases and books are stacked underneath,
 while a metal basket, ironstone, and collectibles all make a statement on top.

She's taken a grain sack and just clamped it to a dark chair for a whole new look. (love this great idea) The pillow and wall art add to the eclectic feel. 

So many fun and interesting elements draw you in to explore.

thanks Meg, what a fun spot!

and here are a few more...
Love, love, love the painted topiary trio of Garden Art on Rustic Boards
from Deb at Lake Girl Paints.

A beautiful Kitchen Paint Reveal  
with so many wonderful farmhouse elements,
from Susan at Evelyn and Rose.

 Amanda from One Girl in Pink shared a Darling Commode Makeover
Amanda shows off her artistry in her furniture makeovers,
you'll want to check out her blog for all the beauty.

Here are a couple of fun makeovers with wheels using repurposed items.
by Aimee at Refresh and Renew

and a great Pallet Project
from Laurel at Chipping With Charm.

And now for some scrumpdillyicious yummers
as she shares her Strawberry Creamcheese Breakfast Cake.
everyone in blogland loves this!
