So . . ., you've finally found the perfect place, lots of storage, nice size rooms, all the extra amenities. But, then you're told "no painting and no making holes in the walls"! You feel all your decorating plans going out the window. What can you do to make the space your own.

Well don't despair. There are many ways to get around the restrictions and limitations and I am here to share the ways I've overcome them over the past 18yrs.

I hope you enjoy my tips and will also share your own. I'll also be sharing some of my on going projects. Once again . . .

Frugal Treasures Features!

Hello everyone!  I see you've been busy with activities and projects.  I had a  pretty busy week but didn't get any more projects completed.  I so enjoy checking out all of your links.  It gets harder each week to only pick a few to feature.  But here goes:

Perfect Imperfections with her milk paint chair!

2ndhand Moon really scored with free stuff!

Cap Creations really scored with this desk chair.

Alderberry Hill shows how to create a beachy shelf.

Distressed Donna Down Home found some great scores!

Woven Home has a great tutorial for creamed corn.

I can't wait to make this pizza! Love Bakes Good Cakes

Thank you all for sharing your great projects.  Please feel free to grab your feature button in my sidebar.


  1. Thanks so much for the feature Barbe! And thank you for hosting Frugal Treasures Tuesday.

  2. Great features this week, Barbe! The red chair is so cute! I'm also drooling over the pizza and like you, can't wait to try it! :-)

  3. Good features I love the red chair too.


  4. Thank you, Barbe, for featuring my finds. I cannot seem to find this week's party. I could not even access this page yesterday. Now I do not see any posts linked up. I am clueless when it comes to computers, but this is one big mystery to me.


Thank you for taking the time to comment. I so enjoy hearing from you!
