Welcome to this week's edition of Frugal Friday!
I hate to rant here on the blog, but I feel that I have to start out this post by touching on some of the ground rules of Frugal Friday. Frugal Friday has grown so much, and is quite a large gathering of great ideas. For the most party, those of you who link up share posts that are perfect for this party. However, there are some who do not. That is what I want to address. Frugal Friday is a link party dedicated to Frugal PROJECTS and FINDS. I don't mind if your project is diy, decor, food or even fashion. It can be a room reveal, a favorite meal, a cute something-or-other you made, a great deal you found, a party, or what have you. I just ask that you refrain from posting about your trip, from giving relationship advice, linking to your shop or your own link party, etc. Those sorts of posts are wonderful. But they are not what this party is about. I reserve the right to remove posts that are not in keeping with the spirit of Frugal Friday. Okey-dokey 'nuff said.
Now for the fun stuff....
It's been feeling like spring here for the past couple of days. And the warmer temperatures have me in the mood to get some DIY-ing done! So glad I have a bunch of inspiration to check out at this fab link-up every week!!
Let's check out some of the great posts from last week's party, shall we?
The Fan Favorite from last week was this maple-to-magnificent dresser transformation from Simply Chic Treasures. I just love gray painted furniture!
And on to my Frugal Round-up...
Holy crow, people!! Am I ever in love with Eclectically Vintage's kitchen reno! What a before and after!! Honed Carrera marble counters...herringbone backsplash...those pendant lights. Wowee folks...I'm off to mop the drool off my floor. ;-)
Be Sweetly Inspired made her own pin-tucked duvet. I'm very impressed...both with the fabulous outcome and with her patience!! ;-)
And check out this great before/after living room reveal from The Painted Hive. Lovely. Simply lovely.
Now it's your turn!
