The Inspiration Board: creative party spotlight ~111~

Happy Friday everyone! We’re more than halfway through July – how did that happen? A big thank you to everyone who came by this week, whether you dropped by, linked up, left a comment or stayed awhile, I’m truly grateful. I hope you’re all having a great summer. It’s flying by and it will be back-to-school time soon.

In case you didn’t get a chance to stop by, here’s what I shared this week.

Now on to the projects in the spotlight this week….

PlayhousePoolhouseDecorating_thumbA pool house / playhouse for teens by Finding Home. Click over to see all the room views. The décor is so perfectly beachy, vintage, pool house, teen. A perfect place to hangout.
chair-cover_0342What a great way to cover a chair! Lots of small grannies by Elisabeth Andree make such a sweet and soft chair cover.
IMG_3940I buy honey in this same honey bear squeeze bottle. Homespun with Love has come up with the perfect use for the empty bottle. Homemade honey bear soap. Genius!
kerosene table1GArtsy Vava has come up with a great use for this vintage kerosene heater. A beautiful natural wood tabletop fits perfectly on top to to make a unique side table.
DSCN0099I love the simple clean look of these summer floral pillows by Grow Creative. A great way to add a touch of color to plain pillows.
Ashbee Design Birch Bark House 1 (1)Beautiful natural décor by Ashbee Design. The thick birch bark was pried off a large birch slab and cut into small house shapes creating a tiny birch village.
untitled-6057Reposhture created an oversize stamp to make these stunning drop cloth curtains. The effect is gorgeous and definitely worth her aching muscles from bending and stamping over and over.
1-img_9452A great repurposed idea from Redesigned by M. Paint sticks as plant markers and harvesting instructions. I love the pretty pastel colors.
IMG_3990Fantastic Faux Metal Letters by Adventures in DIY. Theses started as those cardboard letters you can find in craft stores.  A little silver spray paint and some distressing ink and they look like the real deal.
Tree Stump End Table 1Raise your hand if you’ve been wanting to find the perfect tree stump. The Concrete Cottage found a yard full of stumps in her neighborhood and the price was a steal. What a perfect little side table and what a score!
