176th Inspire Me Tuesday & $300 Birthday Giveaway

I always look forward to these fun get-togethers, you guys just continue to impress with all of your fabulous DIY projects and how creative you are.  I started the party a little early because I have a fabulous surprise, but first let's see a few thinkgs from last week.


Remodelando la Casa painted this fabulous greek key tray.  I think it is stunning.  She gives a complete tutorial.





The Comforts of Home thought her table needed some extra character.  You won't believe the harlequin pattern she painted and stained on the top.  Absolutely unreal amazing.


Around the House shared this really gorgeous and fun ladybug tablescape.  I couldn't help but drool over the pool and patio area in the background too.

See what I mean, isn't this fabulous.


Frugal Ain't Cheap takes all the guess work out of painting upholstery with her fabulous tutorial.  I love this rocker, would you believe it use to be plaid.


Now I've seen some fabulous barn wood projects, but I think this is the neatest one ever.  Don't you just love this fabulous piece that My Creative Days shared.  You have to go see her tutorial.



Stitches from the Tub found some unreal bargains and created this amazing tablescape.  You really have to go see every single detail, it is gorgeous.



How about a sweet and savory summer salad.  Simply Suzanne's At Home shared her recipe for this yummy blackberry and walnut salad.



If you want some creative one of a kind storage, you will have to get up really early to top this.  See what
Lavender & Linen created using soda crates.  I love it.


Now for my big surprise.   Since my birthday is coming up on the 12th, Pfister wanted to let me give you guys a fabulous gift.  They will let one of my readers choose any faucet they like with a value of up to $300 as my Birthday Present to you.  Can you believe that?  Now they make the most wonderful faucets and they have so many styles and finishes for both the bathroom and kitchen.



Remember this beautiful faucet they sent me for my bathroom redo. The faucet is the jewelry for the room and this one is exquisite.  The perfect elegant finishing touch.  You can see that post here.


So rush on over to their website and find  the perfect faucet for your bathroom or kitchen.  I am sure you will drool the minute you click on their site to try and make a selection.  Go to Pfister Faucets and choose your favorite, then come back here to enter, plus you can enter every day to increase your chances.   The winner will be announced on August 19th.  Sorry, because of shipping, the giveaway is limited to the U.S. only.
