The Inspiration Board: link party spotlight ~37~

 I had a little glitch in my linky code this week. If you came to link up early Tuesday morning and the link tool was missing, I hope you were able to come back and join the fun. If not, there’s always next week. For those of you who were able to link up and for those who came to visit, thank you, thank you! I truly appreciate each and every visit, comment and link.

As we say goodbye to pink & red, Cupid and hearts, we can look forward to warmer days and  the variety of projects that spring will inspire.
For now, here are a few projects in the spotlight this week.

Unused space becomes functional with a built-in desk by It’s Overflowing. A perfect little command center in the heart of the house.

This was a “duh” moment for me. I have tons of shells. I have paint. Why didn’t I think of painting them? Home Sweet Homemade cheered herself up after a craft fail by making these shells extra pretty with pearly white paint.

hall table 3 retouched done
I love this decoupaged table by Design Megillah. The gold and white striped tissue paper is such a pretty choice and the glass top gives the table a elegant, finished look.

Bench Final
This is a great organization project by Eat Sleep Decorate. Get rid of all the bulky DVD boxes and skinny them down by using CD sleeves. The movie covers were folded in half and slipped into the sleeve for easy identification and then alphabetized with cute ABC dividers.

Darling hot chocolate and crafting party by Ode to Inspiration. Hot chocolate, cookies, cake and crafting – my kind of party. There are so many pretty details you’ll need to click over and check them all out. 

yellow entryway 1
This is the happiest and cheeriest entryway I’ve ever seen. Meeha Meeha painted the wall a sunshine yellow and then hand painted the retro dots on the other walls. This would surely brighten anyone’s day.

scrambled eggs breakfast cups recipes_thumb[6]
All my favorite breakfast items gathered together in a yummy flaky cup. Oh my goodness! Bacon, egg and cheese breakfast cups by Adventures of our Family.
lace_crown_tutorial 043-1
What little girl wouldn’t love these lace crowns by Rook No. 17? These would be great for dress up, costumes, birthday parties and more! The best part – Rook No. 17 shows us a nice short cut using the microwave. 

Great photography art by Little Green Bow. A trip around the city captured the letters L-O-V-E in different scenes. A thoughtful gift and wall art that can be done even if you’re on a budget. 

A lovely way to display buttons. Shabby Art Boutique used about 100 vintage buttons to make this pretty vintage button ball. The varying shades of white buttons are so pretty but any color would make a pretty display.
