Wow, I gotta tell ya...the first Frugalicious Friday of 2010 was, well, Fabulous! And with 80 link ups, I think it's safe to say Frugalicious Friday is officially on the map...wahoo, think of all the money we'll save in 2010!
Well the creativity I see each week astounds me! I'm talkin' fabulous thrifty finds full of style and potential, creative crafts that make my crafty skills pale in comparison, and Diy projects that are just plain awesome...love it!
Here's are my favorites from this fun day all about $aving!
Rene from Cottage and Vine linked up, among a few other thrifty finds, this fun n' funky mirror she scored for just $5 bucks! Yup, just 5 dollars...amazing isn't it? She plans to paint this cutie and I can't wait to see the what color she chooses.
Aaron from CheapThrills shared with us these gorgeous hand sewn throw pillows. How stylish are these and I just love the patterns she chose. She buys the fabric at her favorite discount fabric store, and scores down filled pillows on clearance from places like Ross and TJ Maxx. Then she sews one of a kind pillow covers...love em'! And the cost for each pillow? Around $5, yup that is seriously frugalicious!
Next we've got Erin from her blog Chris, ErinandJayce who linked up this stunning Diy Wall Art! How she made this is simply amazing. She took a few pieces of poplar board, stained them a dark wood color, then covered the boards with a doormat, and spraypainted. Here's a photo of how she did this:
One word here...Amazing! This art is so creative and stylish, Erin really thought outside the box on this one! Thank's Erin for giving us such a cool idea for wall art!
And Finally, Kirsty from her blog BlahBlahBlah... linked up this adorable little blue table. She started with your typical dark wood table with a mahogony finish. Kirsty lightened this baby up with the prettiest blue color, and then used a brown glaze to age it and add some depth. This is so cute, just the perfect combination of shabby and chic!
So that's a wrap! With 80 participants...Frugalicious Friday last week was a big success! If you participated...as always thanks for the linky love! And if you haven't linked up yet, Friday will be here before you know it! So link up, show us how you $ave...we want to see your fabulous finds, crafts and Diy projects!
