Be Inspired Features and Link Party #29

Happy Tuesday! Welcome back for features and party day!

As I hit publish last night on the summer tag sale preview post, I saw the number 300 pop up. Oh my goodness, is it really possible that I've written 300 posts? Let me just say that everything about this blogging experience has totally exceeded my wildest expectations. I never really had any expectations at all. The fact that you are here and take the time to follow along, leave such positive and encouraging comments and share your talent and creativity just amazes me. A huge thank you from me to you!

Now let's check out some fabulous projects and see what you've been up to this week!

First up, this old dresser (a freebie) turned into a portable bar at Bliss Ranch just totally knocked my socks off!

My friend Cassie over at Primitive & Proper is giving her kids bathroom an update and I love the big bold color she chose. It's called "Orangeen" and it sounds as yummy as it looks.

But just painting the vanity wasn't enough for Cassie. She also painted the ceiling orange - how much fun is that!
Have I mentioned that I love Creamsicles?

Another beautiful color choice came from Saved by Suzy. She picked "Coral Isle" for this desk that doubles as a bedside table. Now that's pretty and multi-functional! 

You'll have to check out the happy accident responsible for this really cool lamp makeover from The Concrete Cottage. Oh yes, definitely squeal worthy Jeannine!


And Shari from Turnstyle Vogue shared the complete tutorial for these wonderful caddies along with the cutest little tags!

Shari made a whole batch of them with wonderful housewarming gift ideas. My mind is already skipping ahead to Christmas gift ideas. Time to break out some tools!

Gosh, you know this is really hard right? You are all so worthy of a feature! I love you guys! Thanks so much to everyone who linked up and linked back! Feel free to grab a cute little button from the sidebar if you've been featured!

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!

* 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!
