Feeling Inspired


Katie from Katie Did has been all over blog land lately, but she has been a favorite of mine for awhile now. She inspires me to stretch my sewing skills. She completely rocks it in the creativity department.



Although it seems the lovely lady from Brooklyn Bean may not be blogging anymore I still adore going through her archives. You must check out the before photos on her kitchen remodel. This is just so beautiful.



I just love this nursery from Abbey Goes Design Scouting. It almost makes me want to have another baby just so I could do this nursery, weird I know.


I just adore this hall. Kellie actually drew the pattern on her walls with a paint pen. I really am considering doing this in the sun room if the hubby gives me the green light.



This dresser is ever so lovely. As is the new blogger and my good friend Joy at August Love. You will love her!



I just loved this chair makeover done by Eddie Ross. He is such a DIY master.

Hope you too are feeling inspired!

Love all of Eddie Ross' DIY projects. They always turn out so great. And inspire me to tackle something at my house.

Oh, this was a great round up of good ideas... My future kitchen will have those subway tiles and a breakfast bar for sure. And I love the rug in the nursery. So fun!

I have never been to Kate Did before. I'm glad you posted because I need to be inspired in the sewing department. Kind of a lost art, you know.

Great inspirations. I'm also a fan of katie's - she has amazing talent. LOVE LOVE the rug in that nursery. I'd never actually buy it because I'm pathetically scared of too much colour in big doses, but do love it!

I too think Katie is amazing, everything she does blows.my.mind.

And that stencil, free hand, "wallpaper" project is too good for words. Thanks for this fantastic round up of inspiration, Paula.
