378th Inspire Me Tuesday

Welcome to the 378th Inspire Me Tuesday.  Tons to see last week and plenty of great diy projects and recipes.  Make sure you didn't miss any.  Here are a few samples.

I think upholstery is one thing that intimidates us all.  I just redid my first chairs last year and they are not nearly as hard as you think. In fact they are really easy.  She Holds Dearly shares her step by step tutorial of how she reupholstered these two $10 garage sale chairs.  You can do this too, she shows just how simple it is.

Subway tile is so classic and can dress up any space.  Lolly Jane wanted to update her kitchen without a huge DIY mess or a lot of money.  She found the perfect answer.  Would you believe her faux subway tile backsplash is wallpaper.   Check out how she did it.

Lolly Jane had another project that I loved.  If you hate your bathroom floors, then just like her, paint them.  She shares a great tutorial on this one too.

Decorating outdoors seems to be what we are all up to right about now.  Would you believe that these Galvanized Lanterns use to be bright red.  Check out Of Faeries and Fauna Craft Co. for her complete tutorial.

The Green House totally upgraded her kitchen with these GORGEOUS diy White Concrete Counters.  Great tutorial too.

There will not be a Inspire Me Tuesday linky party next week on 6/12.  Time for the  - - -
