Summer Inspiration Series: Simple Updates

Well, today Andrea and I are on our way down to Atlanta for the Haven Conference!  I'm so excited and also a little nervous.  You can follow me on instagram for behind the scenes shots; I'm carmel_ourfifthhouse.

Today I'm kicking off the Summer Inspiration Series by featuring some wonderful ideas for simple updates in your home.  Summer is the perfect time of year for a quick project. I'm a big fan of details, and I believe the smallest changes can make this biggest impact.

Pam from Simple Details made this monogram pillow using none other than a sharpie!  I'm always a sucker for a monogram, and this is no exception.



Beth from Design Post found some cloth baskets at Ikea and gave them a little ombre makeover.  I love the pop of color!



We've seen a number of DIY drum shades all over blogland, but this one from Jennifer at Dimples and Tangles  had me at gold.......not to mention sheer over a vintage chandy!


And last but not least, Peggy from Pig Logs and 'Tater Berries  made an outdoor chandy using a tomato cage!  Pure genius I tell ya! 


I've so enjoyed checking out the projects you've submitted for this series!  I'm looking forward to featuring more of your inspiring summer projects!
