Be Inspired Features and Link Party #7

Welcome back for features and party day!

I love checking out all of your amazing projects each week! But let me just tell you, picking features is really hard! Thanks so much to everyone who linked up! Here are a few inspired ideas that caught my eye...

How gorgeous is this office makeover from A Place 2 Call Home! You really need to check out all the lovely details!

There is no one better at taking bits and pieces of random things and turning them into something amazing than our friend Gail over at My Repurposed Life! Gail doesn't just show a before and pretty after shot, she keeps it real and shares great tutorials. This is an in-progress shot of a fabulous bench project she recently completed. You can read all the details here, here and here. But we warned, you'll want to break out some power tools!

This makeover comes with the best thrifting story ever! Allison from Fab Rehab Creations was visiting her sister in Chicago when they found this bed at a thrift store. Allison's sister fell in love with it, so off they went with a full size headboard, footboard and side rails on a city bus! Can't you just picture that!

Be sure to check out this chair reupholstering tutorial from Loren at Pandora's Craft Box -wow!

Carrie from Lovely, etc. shared two fun projects with us this week. First her husband Mitch took some very ordinary bar stools and gave them a whole new life. Mitch caught the painting bug and now Carrie lets him guest post on her blog. How cute is that?

Then Carrie shared a hand-me-down mirror that she covered with maps from an old atlas for a really great look!

Heather from The Junction put a refreshing and sophisticated spin on this table and set of chairs for her children - just beautiful!

Aimee from Twigg Studios shared the cutest DIY herb garden gift idea. Spring is just around the corner you know!

And Garden Therapy shared the recipe for a mango citrus body butter that looks so luxurious!

Thanks again to everyone who linked up and linked back! If you've been

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

* 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!

* 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!

I wanted to let you know that I'm hosting a month-long Giveaway Jubilee beginning March 1st. I know you've hosted giveaways before and thought you might be interested. You can participate as a giver, a (hopefully) winner, or both! Just click on the button at the top right of my sidebar that says "Giveaway Jubilee" for more info.

Hope you have a lovely weekend,
