Motivated Monday Highlights:
Thank you to everyone that linked up to last week's Motivated Monday here at BeColorful.
I love love love reading what you have been up to and studying the pictures you post of your projects.
I was especially intrigued by this computer generated wall art by Can't Stop Making Things.
This is just the middle step. The final look is in color and would make such a great addition to a child's room or once you get it mastered, a perfect personal and affordable gift. Stop by her blog and check out the tutorial.
Then I was so smitten with this little cuddle bug in her darling hat, scarf and mittens. I love that pink and brown combo. I have never learned to knit but this look makes me wish I knew how.
To see more of this look be sure and stop by Easy Peasy Grandma.
Then there was this all new to me idea of faux stain glass using paint and glue.
Amazing. You can find the tutorial at Suzy's Artsy Craftsy Sitcom.
There were decorating posts, too, to motivate me like this one from House to Your Home
I do a number of painted furniture pieces every year and this stripe technique has been on my to do list but now seeing how gorgeous this one is has this project bumped up a lot closer to the top of my list.
Then there were these sweater mittens from Gone North. Seriously. She sold oodles of them. Like over $2000 worth of mittens and some of the stories behind the sweaters are really interesting. I am so impressed by her success.
I probably won't be making these myself, but ordering them from her.
As for me, I finally finished up another project.
A client gave me a wall cubby that she thought would be fun in a bathroom to hold towels or magazines.
It was a bit forlorn looking when it first arrived here at BeColorful and I had to let it just set for about a week or so before I started to feel a design for it.
The client wanted something a little but not too funky and in neutral colors.
Yes, this one took some thought.
It is a bit too late today to get a decent "after" picture but I hope you will stop back tomorrow to see the words, diamonds, and stripes look that this piece ended up with.
Until then, have a great week and link up whatever you are working on, reading, cooking, painting, or remodeling.
