382nd Inspire Me Tuesday

Welcome to the 382nd Inspire Me Tuesday.  You guys are in the teaching mood this week.  We had some really fabulous tutorials for several different projects.  I think you will enjoy these.

Adding character to a room is what makes it unique, and this kitchen area is full of character.  Welsh Design Studio shows us step by step how they installed a faux wood beam in their kitchen.  Isn't it fabulous.

If you are like me you have drooled over those design boards you see everyone creating and found it really, really difficult to do.  Rain On A Tin Roof shares the easiest tutorial and now we can all make them.   She takes you on a visual video step by step.

If you have ever wanted one of those really expensive French Mattress Cushions and just stopped because of price - now you can have one.  She Holds Dearly shared her step by step on how to make one.

I think we are all trying to spruce up our backyard and patio area at this time of year.  Pink Fortitude too one side of her yard that she says was a mud pit and created this amazing lounging area.

Six Seeds had a genius idea for how to soften a gorgeous bay window without interfering with that amazing view.  Think pallet, and check out her solution.

Since Summer is in full swing and I love strawberry shortcake, I just had to feature this New England Style Strawberry Shortcake from The Kitchen.  There's a printable recipe too.

Ok, let's see what you have for this week.
