Thrifty Thursday #21

I have been working on 2 thrifty projects recently and each have been big "fails!"  Do you ever have that happen.....where you "see" the project in your mind and then when you get to end, it looks nothing like you hoped it would??


Or......it peels right off the refrigerator???  I was trying to put a chalkboard on my fridge.....yes, primer is a MUST!!


Well, this week's featured projects on Thrifty Thursday are inspiration for those of us who try.....and sometimes, fail!

One that caught my eye right away was this guest bedroom makeover from A Step in the Journey....




My favorite part of the whole room is that gorgeously thrifty headboard made from old wood!  What a great idea!




Taking a Sunday Drive took this $2.00 yard sale chair...




....and turned it into this blue beauty!



It is just so pretty!!




I have to admit that I was a little nervous when I saw the title of this next post...."you can shut your cornhole for less....."
But then I realized that Tres Chere was talking about this....




The cornhole game that they turned into this beauty!!




And Angela and Debbie did it for less than $20!!


Spruce Up Your Nest painted and distressed this gorgeous piece of furniture!






Another project that is just made beautiful with paint!!


There were some yummy looking recipes that linked this week!  


Chef in Training linked these lasagna roll-ups....






...while Sensible Shoppers used wonton wrappers in this version of Petite Lasagnas! 




And finally, Joyful Homemaking linked up this for dessert!


....chocolate freezer pie!!!  I will be making this before the summer is over!

I've got a bunch of fails lately. I've been thinking I'd just do a big post on them so everyone can feel my pain :)
