Be Inspired Features and Link Party #3

Welcome back for feature and party day! I am having so much fun checking out all the wonderful projects linked up.

Here are a few of the inspired ideas that caught my eye this week...

I am loving the big bold color that Lily Field Furniture used on this gorgeous dresser! And check out the gold hardware too.



Vintage Restyled
shared this dresser transformation that looks like it came right out of Restoration Hardware!


Cyndi from Blue Star Antiques is a former math teacher with a love of all things with numbers. Just check out how she used vintage yard sticks on this chest!



Bonnie from Revolutionaries made this amazing sheet music desk as a Christmas gift for a friend. Imagine finding this under your tree!




If you've been to an Elizabeth & Co. tag sale, you know how we girls love old doors! Just look how At Home With K incorporated doors in a wonderful mudroom renovation.


Denise from Pink Postcard shared her very first upholstery project that started out as a $15 thrift store find. Now it's a real shabby chic beauty!



Jamie from DIY Home Sweet Home has a wonderful tutorial for keepsake quilts. Don't they look soft and cozy?



Sherry from Pondered Primed Perfected introduced us to her mother Gladys who creates cute and functional tote bags from animal feed bags. Now that is recycling at it's best!


And finally, I just love these stuffed paper hearts from Michele at The Scrap Shoppe! What a sweet Valentine's Day project!



Thanks again to everyone who linked up and linked back! And if you've been featured, feel free to grab a cute little button from the sidebar!





Now on to this week's party! The guidelines are simple...

* Link up your furniture makeovers, DIY projects, crafts, recipes, thrifty finds, etc... We want to see whatever is inspiring you at the moment!

* Grab a party button!

* And be sure to follow along with us!

We'll be back next Tuesday with features and a brand new party!

Now let's share some inspiration!

There are some really cute features here. Surprising to see the gold knobs on the dresser-after the move away from gold~ That is the 2nd piece I have seen in the last few days with gold- xo Diana
