Be Inspired Features and Link Party #76

Happy Tuesday! Welcome back for features and party day!
 
Elizabeth and Co.

I can not believe that the 4th of July is upon us already! I'm not sure I've even gotten into the groove of summer just yet. Is time flying by for you too? ... Here are just a few of the projects that caught my eye this week .....

I recently wrote about an evening with my book club. I hope it inspired you to think about starting a book club of your very own. And if you need a little more inspiration,  check out this beautiful book themed tablescape from Diane at An Extraordinary Day!

 
You really can't go wrong with fresh flowers, blue mason jars and book pages!
 

You know I have a weakness for dressers and this blue and white cottage dresser from Pneumatic Addict Furniture is so charming! And Elisha even shares her recipe for making dark antiquing wax!
 
  
Reeves from The Weathered Door was also feeling the blue and white color combination on this beautiful dresser! Doesn't the pop of white hardware just make it look so fresh!
 
 
Reeves also had a great tutorial on how to upholster a chair!
 
 
And I'm loving the white top and trim on this gorgeous vintage dresser from City Girl Arts - so pretty with the teal!


You really need to check out this radio cabinet before ...


... to fully appreciate the stunning revamp from Lisa at Create Inspire! I'm telling you, this girl has vision and mad skills!


 And do you see that hardware? Swoon worthy for sure!
 

And how gorgeous and sophisticated is this chest of drawers from Susan at Uniquely Yours or Mine!
 
 
Denise from Pink Postcard shared her beautiful farmhouse style laundry room reveal!
 

  
And Katie from My DIY Habits gave her laundry room a fresh new look for under $200. So bright and pretty!
 
 
Melissa from Daisy Mae Belle shared her cute canning jar lid wreath. I've seen them before and wondered how to keep the lids in a nice uniform circle. Melissa shares her secret!
 

Don't you just love Melissa's yard!

 
And Tuula from The Thrifty Rebel turned some thrift store bags into planters for her back deck. Don't they just make you smile!


Thanks so much to everyone who linked up and linked back!
We so appreciate having you here. If you've been featured, feel free to grab a cute little button from the sidebar!

Your flower arrangements look really good, which proves your theory; you can’t go wrong with that. I loved all the pieces in the pictures, and the tutorial was inspiring, but I liked the old version of the radio cabinet more, but I guess I wouldn’t match the rest of the furniture.
