Saturday Sparks Link Party 127

Welcome to Saturday Sparks 127!

It's such a treat to visit the links from each weeks party. I always find something that gives me pause and gets my wheels spinning. Whether a large project or small, there is always inspiration to be found.

 Now, lets get this weeks party started.

First up, the Fabulous Features from Saturday Sparks 126.

$15 Console Table and Bench Makeover at Re-Fabbed. Brooke took a Craigslist score out of the darkness with a bright and happy makeover.

Indian Inlay Stenciled Chair Makeover at Casa Watkins. Stephanie loves the look of bone inlay furniture but doesn't like the high prices. See how she took a thrift shop find and transformed it into the look she so loved with the help of some paint, a stencil and some creativity.

DIY Rustic Wood Wall at Sweet Parrish Place. Nicki had fun joining in a 'Mini-makeover Challenge' where she had to makeover an area of her home with zero money. The results were this fabulous Rustic Wood Wall in her hallway using salvaged fence posts.

Let's Paint This! A mid-century nightstand transformed at MBZ Interiors, Inc. Mary Beth transformed an estate sale cabinet into a wonderful nightstand. I am loving the the dipped gold legs look!

Grey Diamond Afghan at Vintage, Paint and more... - Cathy shows us a lovely crocheted afghan she made as a gift for someone special and shares the link for the free pattern.

No-Bake Lime Cheesecakes in a Jar at Urban Girl Bakes. Leanne found an abundance of limes at the grocery store and knew just what to make. In this post, she shares her lowfat recipe for individual 'No-Bake Lime Cheesecakes in a Jar'.

Fish Tacos with Poblano Pepper Pico de Gallo at Honey and Birch. The heat of summer finds Jenny making these Fish Tacos on the grill and shares how she gives them a nice spicy flavor.

Easiest Candied Pecans at One Little Project. Debbie is sharing a one pan, stove top, no fail recipe for 'Candied Pecans' that sounds amazing.

Strawberry Banana Muffins at The Diary of a Real Housewife. Jennie shares a yummy muffin recipe using fresh strawberries and bananas that she says freezes beautifully.

Peach Berry Cobbler at Pinch of Nutmeg. Meg is sharing a delicious cobbler recipe that she describes as 'so easy it's embarrassing'.

Superfood Energy Bars at To Simply Inspire. Sherri shared a homemade energy bar recipe that is packed with nutrients and just enough sweetness to satisfy our cravings.

And finally, a recap of my share from the party - DIY Gray Kitchen Reveal - An 80's Kitchen Goes Cottage Style. In this post, I share how we said goodbye to the 80's and hello to our new 'cottage' kitchen.
