BeColorful is where we come together to share our accomplishments, creations, and ideas. Think of Motivated Mondays as a shortcut to keeping up with all that is fun and new out here. Just this week
( don't be too quick to judge, you need to read her profile to understand the name)
shared these great FREE printable labels with us.
Aren't they pretty?
Be sure and stop by her blog for a whole array of styles.
Every once in awhile there is a jewelry making post that grabs my attention. This fabric wrapped choker
looked simple enough for the most novice of us but had a stylish and out of the ordinary look that I thought should be showcased.
BeColorful's Motivated Monday wouldn't be what it is without a painted furniture nod and I thought this barnyard red boy's dresser shared by
That distressed but brilliant red is perfect for this piece and love it with that hardware.
Sometimes I think it was some misalignment of the stars that I somehow ended up living in the Midwest and that I really was supposed to be a Texas girl. I have to admit I was a bit envious when I saw this stenciled sign that was shared by
The stenciling is perfect on this piece. It kind of makes me think of the patterns in a bandana. I think this is so fun but somehow I think a Texas sign up here in my flyover state would look a bit out of place. Even if I did make one that said Iowa it just somehow loses something in the translation. You know what I mean? It wouldn't be even fractionally as cool. :D
Then there were the room make overs. Thank you readers for keeping me inspired. Mike and I have lived in our home for nearly fifteen years. We really needed new carpet when we moved in but after a laundry list of other improvements we decided it would have to wait. I'm still waiting. Somehow second floor bedrooms can get over looked but I know it is time to do something. When I saw what
did with hers I was duly impressed.
You need to stop by and read her post to appreciate where she started from and how long it took her. I love the idea of sconces above the night tables.
Thanks Savannah for giving me a bit of a kick in the design pants.
Another jaw dropping room make over was this bold and budget friendly boy's room
With a bit of ingenuity and some purchases from K Mart and Hobby Lobby Mishebe was able to pull together this fun and magnificently cohesive look. The packing straps that she added to the valance and that dog print are among my favorite elements here... well that and the colors. Love it.
Perhaps you are looking for an inexpensive idea for a gift or needing a bit of knick knack inspiration. If so, then be sure and stop by
Just look at what she did with a bit of paint, decoupage, and a couple of embellishments.
Here is the box before -
and here is what it looks like today.
When it came to organizational ideas I was thrilled to see this one from
I've been buying a lot of hats lately. Seems like everyone else is wearing them too, so when I saw this idea using an old shutter door I knew it needed to be shared.
So now all I need are some shutters and a place to put them.
Finally, if you have an old chair or stool or ottoman that you are thinking about tossing, well don't. You need to visit
first and see her recovered stool that she did using $2.00 fabric.
