Thrifty Thursday #12

{Thrifty Thursdays #12}

Swimming season has officially started in my house and I now have 3 swimmers.....translation....three HOURS of practice to sit through 5 days a week!  Big *sigh!*.....

So, do you know how I would write each of you a nice "thank you" for linking to Thrifty Thursday??  Well....those days are gone until fall!  But truly, I look at and enjoy each and every post that gets linked.....I just can't comment on each one!


One project that I really liked was this Chippy Sconce Repurpose from Chipping with Charm...




Anything distressed in creamy white is just gorgeous!!  And I love the piano!


If you need an idea for a boy's room re-design, check out what Fancy Frugal Life did for her little boy.....




One of my favorite parts of this Surfer Room is the raffia window treatment.....


I love anything ugly that is made beautiful and Junque 'N My Trunk made this old magazine rack table into a beauty!!



So many things can be made beautiful again with a little big of paint!!




Or fabric.......look what Meg and Mum's did to this auction sofa....


Before:


After:


It hardly even resembles its former self!!  So pretty!  




One of my FAVORITE ideas were these shoe makeovers from sweet verbena....ADORABLE!!!




Her tutorial is amazingly easy to follow!  I can't wait to make a bunch of these!!




I could have featured so many more projects, but my final feature is this Ruffle Bum Onesie.....I like it because JessaJill didn't use a sewing machine!!


....I'm not really on speaking terms with my sewing machine right now!!




If you were featured this week, be sure to grab a button from the sidebar!

I hade to smile at the swimming. I have 3 as well, but luckily only 2 hours of practice. Is anything as long as a swim meet?
