Be Inspired Link Party ~



Here are a few great ideas from last weeks party:

Jen at Tatertots and Jello created this very creative and colorful Easter wreath-



Sandra at Sawdust and Paper Scraps built this insanely great playhouse out of a closet -



 and Rebekah at All Thingz Related made this adorable framed nest -





Okay, the Party Rules:
1. Select any project that YOU created that you think will inspire someone else.
2. Add a link of your post to the party - make sure it is a link to the specific post not your blog.
3. Give a short description of your project so we can all see what you are highlighting.
4. Please add a link to this party in your post so everyone can head over and join in the fun!

Oh, How I Love Craigslist ~

I picked up this buffet on Craigslist this weekend. 

It is going to go in my "new" craft room. I can see baskets on the sides holding all of my paints, jewels, tags...

I am not sure what type of wood it is, but it is heavy and has Drexel on the inside of the top drawer. 
I am thinking black...oh, and the asking price - $20 bucks! I am hoping the weather stays warm enough for me to prime this baby soon!

Hanging Easter Egg Project ~



Yes, another Easter Project!

My Mom picked this up recently for $5.99. It was the wrong color but definitely had potential. 

So added some paint,

and a little moss.

But it still needed something, so I added a burlap flower. 


And yet, it still needed something else. So I grabbed a couple of plastic eggs from last year.





I hope you all have a great weekend!

Be Inspired Link Party ~

 Here are a few inspiring ideas from the party last week:

Holly at 504 Main created these great eggs -
She used real eggs and great vintage images from The Graphics Fairy.


Lisa at the Fern Creek Cottage created this cute Easter Tree -
She made adorable eggs and tags to adorn the tree. 


Sarah at A Little of This and a Little of That created this great piece of art -
She used vintage flatware, a frame from Goodwill and spray painted burlap.



Okay, the Party Rules:
1. Select any project that YOU created that you think will inspire someone else.
2. Add a link of your post to the party - make sure it is a link to the specific post not your blog.

Napa Style Inspired Lazy Susan ~

I saw this great lazy susan in my latest Napa Style catalog - 

I love this! I just love the rustic feel and the functionality. But the price tag is a bit high at $249.00. Now have I mentioned how much I enjoy Micheal Chiarello? Maybe for a later post...

So I have a bunch of spindles (thanks Gayle) and I was going to cut one down, sand it and get it prepped, until I laid eyes on a candlestick ($1.99) that I picked up at Goodwill awhile back. I also recently picked up  a lazy susan for $4.99 and a wood plate for $1.99. 

I assembled them, 

and played around a little bit, 


and finally decided it will be a piece for my "new" craft room.

I like the Napa Style version for $249.00, but I LOVE my version for $9 bucks!

Two Goodwill Tables ~

Do you remember this fantastic Goodwill find for only $7.50 - 


And this find for $4.99


Now I love them both, but the hallway table just seemed to need a little more "weight" and the piano bench was really too tall for my Grandparents piano. So I put them together...





And I love it! 
I hope you all have a fabulous weekend!
