The Inspiration Board: link party spotlight ~93~

Happy Friday everyone! We crafted, baked, cooked, diyed and decorated through another week!

Thank you to everyone who stopped by this week. The Inspiration Board was brimming with cheerful and bright projects just perfect as we transition into spring.

I’m a little behind on my own projects and I’ll be working to get caught up this weekend. I hope your weekend is filled with relaxation and creativity! Enjoy these projects in the spotlight and hope to see you next week.

goodwill-chalk-paint-end-table-makeover-400x600What a fantastic Goodwill find and fantastic makeover by How to Nest For Less. I love the ornate woodwork and hardware. Just beautiful.

IMG_0931WI can’t think of a better use for these oh-so-cool yardsticks than a toddler step stool. Domestic Imperfection built this adorable and functional step stool so her little one can reach the bathroom light. So sweet!

_DSC6525 copyThese Orange Creamsicle Cupcakes by Todd & Lindsey look so moist and good. Buttercream frosting puts the cream in the creamsicle and tops them off perfectly.

kumquats-and-cream2Another creamsicle project. This one by Pitcher and Plate. Candied kumquats and cream that look delicious. Kumquats are so interesting. A sweet rind and tart fruit. Sort of the inside out fruit. I bet they are absolutely delicious candied.

Shabby-Chic-Chandelier-Makeover-by-Design-Dining- -DiapersThis thrift store chandelier has a whole new life thanks to Design, Dining and Diapers. A coat of paint and some burlap and bling turn an ordinary thrift store item into a shabby chic chandy.

Easter-Tablescape-BookcaseUncommon Designs is all ready for Easter with this beautiful tablescape and coordinating dining room d├ęcor. So many pretty details; burlap, bunnies and lovely Bordallo dishes.

DSC_0009Oh my goodness! Tiny baby booties by Ginx Craft with little daisies and a sweet honey bee. These are just so precious.

CL_IGP2890I’m fascinated by this yard sale lamp makeover by Restoration Redoux. The cylinder is so intricate and pretty. Would you believe it was once a wall paper printing roller? The lamp looks beautiful and what an interesting story it holds.

IMG_0382arAmazing wire crochet by Ana Love Craft.  I can’t imagine trying to crochet with wire and then shaping them into these beautiful flowers to make stunning pieces of jewelry. So unique.

poo and gold coinsSomething about all the holiday “poo” projects crack me up. I always laugh at the annual reindeer and ghost poo treats but this little jar of Leprechaun Poo by My Turn For Us really made me chuckle. I love that these are made for her grandchildren so they can giggle about them too.
