Hello my lovelies, Today is a special day, because We Are Gonna Partieeeeee! We are having a vintage party, at the nest today.   Welcome to the Vintage Inspiration Party, where your links will show up on 4 different blogs!

This is the place to share anything old, treasured, passed-down or tattered, but you can also share projects that were made to look old, including repurposed and upcycled creations.
  vin-tage (adj.) 1.) used to describe something that is not new but that is valued because of its good condition, attractive design, etc. 2.) used to describe something that has the best qualities or characteristics of the things made or done by a particular person, organization, etc.   

 I have joined up with some awesome vintage treasure hunting ladies, who all do a mean job of upcycling those beauties too. And we have a link party that will be running on all of our blogs. 

Here are some lovely features from last week's party!
 Paris themed hutch makeover  
 I love that wallpaper! And what a great idea to repurpose a hutch for a little girls bedroom. Paris Inspired Hutch Makeover by Simply Vintageous   Teenage girls bedroom makeover   
This is an amazing room makeover. You won't the believe the before she started with. From painted furniture to homemade artwork there is so much to see in this teenage girls bedroom makeover by Far Above Rubies 
Sette makover in Toile   
Paint and fabric, the miracle workers of the DIY world. I am sure you will marvel at this settee makover in toile by The Heathered Nest
   Cutting Board Signs   
From the kitchen for the kitchen. What a lovely repurpose: these cutting boards turned signs by Denise on a Whim 
Decorating with vintage trophies   
If you can find a vintage trophy you are in luck because they are so versatile . Look at how Kathleen uses trophies in her vignettes, and she found some great other uses around blogland too. Check out how to decorate with vintage trophies at Charm Bracelet Diva

    From bed to sofa   
Well what do you do when you find a great bed, but nobody wants it because of its awkward size? Well repurpose it of course. The project from bed to sofa was done by Crafty in Canada

   Hutch makeover Coffee bar   
Oh, I love this makeover too. The hutch is great to begin with, but in this lovely blue it truly shines. And as a a coffee station it will just brighten everybody's kitchen. Hutch Makeover by DIY Beautify   

Now let's get this party going. If you want to join and link up your finds and vintage/ upcycled projects go right ahead. But take a moment to browse the rules first.
