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!
Well we've started a new week and the heat is crazy here!  Whew!!!  But you've all come up with some really cool things to share last week.  By the way, I love the variety we're getting with furniture and recipes.  A little something for everyone!  So lets take a look at the features from last weeks party.

This gorgeous country cabinet made over by SuzyQ at Simply Vintageous.

Trudy at Thrift Score

2ndhand Moon gives a prime reason for organization; what a find!

My choice of favorites this week, this table with chalk paint in red is awesome at Life on Lakeshore Drive -

and the chair below.  Can you believe its her first reupholster job?  Need to see the before!

Crazy Thrifty Crafts shows us how to upcycle some of those old jewelry pieces!
