I hope your Easter was as sunny skied and delicious tasting as it was renewing.
There were just so many great ideas for Easter decor and recipes here on BeColorful's Motivated Monday.
If you missed last week's event you can still see it all by clicking
This week I am again excited to share with you some of the posts that I found particularly ingenious, tasty, or motivational.
First up is this stunning guest bedroom update from
I thought this color combination was so fresh and out of the ordinary and the collection of birds was a fun and unexpected touch.
As for motivation, this paper reed project from
is something I have seen in stores and thought, "I bet I could do that".
Well now because of Suzy's tutorial I think I now know how to best tackle this idea and am adding this to my project bucket list.
Next up there was this fantastic glammed up side table from

An easy project and useful too were these chalkboard painted wineglasses via Oceanside Daydreams
If your parties are like ours people are always forgetting where they set their glass and which glass belongs to whom so this is a perfect solution. Just add a name to the base of each glass with chalk. You can change it up again for the next party and it is a bit different than the usual wine tags.
This post from
has me definitely inspired.
Look what she did with some spray paint and a bit of felt!
I will have to go dig through my pile of cast offs and see if there is something in there that I can paint.
If you follow my blog here then you know that I am frequently transforming some piece of furniture with a vivid coat of paint. So far, though, I haven't done anything in chalk paint. I guess I need so many different colors that it isn't cost effective for me. So, when I saw this post from
I was definitely intrigued. Not only does she share the reasons why chalk paint is so popular but she offers up a recipe to make our own.
Barbara, I think I love you.
It is always so fun to see what all of you have been up to and I can't wait to see what you come with with from week to week.
