Get Me Motivated Monday

Here are the projects that are getting me motivated this week!

1.  Natalie at Beach House in the City has wowed me time and time again.  This time she has revealed her basement makeover.  I told her when I first saw it, I thought it was a Sarah Richardson project.  I love everything, from the painting over the fireplace, to the pefect color/texture of the sofa, to the pops of coral and turquoise.  It's so light and bright that I can hardly believe it's a basement.

To boot, Natalie's family recently got a hedgehog as a pet ... and a few days later, it had babies.  I couldn't help but to goo and gaa over her hedgehog video!

2.  I think it's so cool when items are used for a non-intended purpose.  Maybe you don't like to eat lima beans, but would you use them for a cute wreath?  Hope at Seasons with the Sewells will show you how to do it.

3.  This chest looks like a long-lost sibling of our white Hepplewhite dresser.  Sue from Uniquely Chic chose a blue-gray color for the base and she re-stained the top deep walnut.  Beautiful!

4.  So many people have a sofa table, coffee table or end table in this design.  Alicia at Thrifty and Chic has a great before & after, exemplifying how something outdated can so easily become current with just a little paint update!

5.  How about this cozy outdoor daybed for a relaxing spot?  The mix of colors and patterns is along the lines of what I want to do in my living room.  I've got a big black leather sectional, but I want to punch it up with color and pattern.  The yellow-painted mirror on the wall is just perfect for this space.  Check it out at Tres Chere.


I hope some of these projects will help get you motivated if you're a procrastinator like me!
