Be Inspired #150: Renewed

Some people have a knack... actually, it's a gift, to be able to look at something and see a transformation in their mind. They can take discarded and forgotten misfits, and then give them new life... Angie from Knick of Time has that gift. Her Etsy Shop, Knick of Time is a testament of her creative ingenuity and hard work, where everyday objects become beautiful and functional vintage decor.

Angie's latest transformation is this amazing Grain Sack Wicker Sofa. She gives us a step-by-step on her transformation process, and makes all of us know that we can salvage wonderful old furniture and objects, if we will just think outside the box.

The "Before"...

Angie used bits and pieces of old lace and fabrics
 to give this old beauty a second chance at life.

and don't you love her wonderful photo styling?

Here are some other great links from last week's party.
Kris from Junk Chic Cottage and her hubby transformed a chaise into this Wonderful Day Bed on the Deck. Honestly, each time I see Kris' amazing outdoor spaces I'm in awe. so lush and beautiful!

Lynn from Fern Avenue transformed a vintage dresser with too many layers of paint into this wonderful Hot Baths Vanity for her daughters' bathroom. She gives us a look at her makeover and stenciling process, too.

Kim from Reposhture showed us How to Make Table Legs with Casters. With an old coop and some salvaged legs and casters, she created a fabulous coffee table. Love the patina on those legs!

Jann at Mrs. Olson's has been Harvesting Lavender from her yard, and she has it all tied up in a wonderful vignette.

Megan from Restoring the Roost  has been busy with her garden this summer, and she shares a yummy recipe for these Spicy Refrigerator Pickles. Love the so fun fabric coverings on top!

And Yvonne at Stone Gable can take a bunch of veggies and elevate them to a work of art in her Summer Salad in a Jar. Doesn't that just make your mouth water?

thanks so much ladies,  for sharing all the inspiration!

Today,  Leslie Janson, is in the Sponsor Spotlight. Leslie creates one-of-a-kind handmade eco-friendly jewelry and pillows made from eclectic vintage elements. Her creations make wonderful gifts for yourself or someone else who loves up-cycled goods and accessories. Hope you'll run by and check out  Leslie's Etsy Shop!

Hope you'll all join in for Be Inspired today, which is open for all your inspiring posts. I'm not a stickler for "rules", but I'd so appreciate you including a link back to Common Ground within your post, not just a multiple party link to another page. I know it takes a minute, but most of us take the time to do it. I've seen so many wonderful posts I'd love to feature, but that's one of the party etiquette guidelines. 99% of readers will not click that link to see where you party. So, please just take a minute more so I can feature your wonderful inspiring posts here at Be Inspired
Thanks everyone, for coming by each week to join in on the party; you vintage-lovin' peeps are the best!!

Hope you'll check out these other great Friday Parties!

 Have a great weekend,
OK, time to link up what's been inspiring you this week!
