Frugal Friday~

Welcome to the first Frugal Friday of 2012!!  What a week this has been around The Shabby Nest!  Sooooo busy...but really good.  I'll let you all in on everything as soon as I can.

But for now let's check out some highlights from last week's party. 

First up, The Fan Favorite from last week was this adorable $5 furniture rehab from Dumped & Discovered.  Amazing what a bit of paint-able wallpaper can do!


On to my Frugal Round-up...

First up, I love, love, love this chair redo by Two Thirty-Five Designs.  The linen upholstery with black trim is so tailored and classic.


Shabby  Love shared this pretty wall o' mirrors.  I've been wanting to do something similar to this in my main floor powder room.  I might just have my inspiration now.


Finally, The Star Wars themed boys' room shared by Blackberry Vine is quite clever, but I really love this lego mini-figure display she created.  Could somebody please pin this for me, so I can repin it, since my computer with the pinning widget is still being repaired at the computer hospital (yeah, I know there's not really such a thing as a computer hospital.)  Leave me a comment if you do...my boys will love you for it. ;-)


Now it's your turn!

You know "da rules"...

1. Please link directly to your post and not just to your blog.
2. Please link back the Shabby Nest (you can use the pretty new button on my side bar to make it easy.)
3. Please visit other participants and leave them comments! Help them feel "the love!" And don't forget to "like" your favorite posts so they can become the "FAN FAVORITE!"

Good morning~I linked up my Easy Lace Shirt-which is more of a cape. It's a great project for a someone unaccustomed to sewing-or for a novice sewer. Thanks for hosting the party once again. Have a great weekend!
