Be Inspired Features and Link Party #33

Happy Tuesday! Welcome back for features and party day!

There's been a "white" painting frenzy going on around here. Just a few more things to finish up and I'm excited to move on to some bright and happy colors. But you all have definitely been embracing color. Here are just a few of the projects that caught my eye this time around ...

Painting a piano is a big project and a brave move, but the result is sooo worth it! Check out this beauty from  Doodles & Stitches


Love this beautiful roadside rescue from Fine Point Creations. Wouldn't it be fun to see the expression on the former owner's face if they could see it now?


You know that Shari at Turnstyle Vogue does amazing work with paint. But just look what she can do with stain. This is stunning!



And while I was painting everything white, Dee from My Painted Stuff went on a little painting frenzy of her own with Duck Egg Blue. This is just one of the beautiful pieces she shared!



Don't you love this French script lamp shade? You won't believe how easy it was! Head over to The Concrete Cottage for all the details. You'll want to make over all your lampshades!


Check out this gorgeous stenciled wall from Kathleen at Projects at the Pickett's! It totally transforms the room!


Molly B from The Poor Sophisticate challenged herself to use only recycled and repurposed items that she already had to create an eclectic, bold and elegant hall transformation. Amazing!


I love this sweet back-to-school vignette from Bell Jar Vintage! Ready or not, a positive outlook goes a long way to getting the year off to a great start!


And I can't think of a better lunch box treat or after school snack that these Banana Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies from Country Momma Cooks!


Thanks so much to everyone who linked up and linked back! If you've been featured, there's a cute little button on the sidebar!



Now on to this week's party...

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


* Grab a party button and add it to your post or link back in some way. You must have a visible link back to be considered for a feature!

* And be sure to follow along with us!

We'll be back next week with features and a brand new party.
Now let's share some inspiration!
