174th Inspire Me Tuesday

Wow, we are at number l74.  That's amazing.  So much to see and you guys just keep coming up with the most awesome projects.  So let's get started  - - - I can't wait to see what you have again this week.


Can you believe this was a Craigslist freeby.  Little Bit of Paint did an amazing job of bringing this back to life.  Gorgeous.  She's also a fairly newby blogger, so give her a huge welcome.




You definitely have to go see how Coconut Head turned this

into this. - - Amazing



I love how Orphans With Makeup redid this media cabinet into a gorgeous armoire by reworking the inside.  Stunning refinishing technique too.  She's also a newby blogger , so go say hello.


I love how everyone is making the most fabulous drapes out of drop clothes, but just look at these stunning smocked ones that Maison de Pax created.  She also gives instructions.

I love , love, love buffalo checks and this dining room makeover that Lilacs and Longhorns did is so totally my style.


Simply Suzanne's At Home shared her recipe for this delicious hot summer drink.  Doesn't this look so refreshing and her pictures are gorgeous too.


An Apple Blackberry Cake, now doesn't that sound decadent.  Lines from Linderhof always share recipes for the most wonderful desserts.


Have you ever seen anything so cute.  Spittin Toad gives a complete tutorial on how to paint your shoes with bleach.  Amazing.



Don't forget,  the Summer Showcase of Homes starts today.  26 of your favorite bloggers are opening their homes for you to tour.  5 homes each day and 6 for the finale.  Mark your calendar, you don't want to miss this.
                                                                               7/22

We have quite a few newby bloggers joining us each week, and I love that, however I am always so disappointed to see that they aren't receiving very many comments.  So just a reminder, PLEASE TURN OFF WORK VERIFICATION.  Most people won't take the time to jump through all the hoops you have to in order to leave a comment, plus it really isn't  necessary.  So make it easy for others to tell you how much they love your projects.

 Ok, now let's see what all you guys have for today.  I can't wait.  If you were featured, please grab my button.
