Thrifty Thursday #25

So I am looking out my back yard right now at this.....



......actually, that's looking upstream into my neighbor's yard.....what a day it has been!  


Today is my 40th birthday and all that I wanted was a nice quiet night to go out-to-dinner with my hubby.....



Maybe next year???



So, since I'll be here....eating take-out if my hubby makes it home.....I may as well host Week #25 of Thrifty Thursday!

Tres Chere did it again with this dresser makeover.....I saw one like this in an HGTV email that I got, but I like theirs better!



Miss Kopy Kat used some Annie Sloan chalk paint to transform her dresser into this beautiful white piece.....



These knock-off Ballard design curtains from Blessed Beyond Measure are just gorgeous......and so simple to make!



Sugar and Spice...and Everything Nice made this simple yard wreath for fall.  Have you started decorating for fall, yet?



The transformation on this dresser from The Frosted Gardner is just amazing.....it doesn't even resemble its former self!



Keeping up with the Joneses made these adorable fall wreaths out of Dollar Tree materials!



Domesticated Nomad made these adorable little Polaroid magnets for her fridge!



I just LOVE this DIY window cornice from At The Picket Fence....you'll never believe what this is made from!

Happy Birthday! So sorry about the flooding! It can stop raining now. Or better yet, I wish we could send some of it to Texas where the wildfires are raging!

Happy Birthday...well, I don't know how "happy" it is going to be. If you want to get wild and crazy, you could go down the slide into the water. Thank you SO MUCH for featuring the dresser I did in AS Chalk Paint. It looks kinda "plain Jane" after some of the more curvacious dressers/buffets I have seen done.

Carrie said...

I'll keep your family in our thoughts and prayers. Most importantly, everyones safe, right? Stay safe, and take care.

Tatum said...

Not sure wether to send birthday wishes or condolences- I'll start with happy birthday! That is just crazy.

Jen @ Domesticated Nomad said...

Kadie said...
