FDG is getting ready to have her house painted.
Choosing the right color has become all-consuming! While scouring the web the other day, I came across this great painting tip, and knew it had to be shared.
I LOVE the idea of using a milk jug.
The handle makes it easy to grip. The light-weight container means it is easy to juggle while I am perched precariously on some chair, counter, table or ledge. (No traditional ladder for this gal!) And, the thought of having a place to rest my brush while I tidy up is pure genius!

Plain and boring fencing gotcha’ down? Take a cue from Kevin Devine, and create decorative fence panels.
By simply painting a few colorful stripes here and there, Kevin was able to provide a frugal – yet powerful – PUNCH to this backyard space!
My goodness! So simple…yet soooo dramatic!
The best part? Kevin’s a DIY devotee…just like FDG!
Here is what Kevin had to say about himself in his HGTV profile:
“Hey everyone. Just another HGTV addict. I just bought/built a new house in the Newbold neighborhood in Philadelphia and am decorating one room at a time. Always looking for inspiration for the next room.”
Ha! Just another HGTV addict? I don’t think so. This fella’s got vision! It’s no wonder his space has been viewed THOUSANDS of times on HGTV’s website.
Kevin also shared that the pillows shown on the settee in this photo inspired the color palette for his decorative fence panels. Brilliant.
Love those punches of green!
Frugal Design Girl thinks Kevin Devine did a DIVINE job making his space unique and full of style! Bravo, Kevin! Bravo!
You can see more of Kevin’s creative talent over at HGTV.com.
Do you have frugal ideas for outdoor spaces that you would like to share with FDG? If so, let’s hear them!!
Listen up all of you frugal shoppers: The One Kings Lane Day of Kitchen sale is here! This is one of the best sales of the year because of the variety of high quality kitchen items One Kings Lane offers! Below are some of my favorite sales that they are hosting. Remember, One Kings Lane sales only last 72 hours…so when you see an item you love, you should definitely buy it! This Day of Kitchen sale is live from today-4/26. Here are just some of the goodies you will find:
The Spring Table Sale
You can set a table that practically blooms by using light, bright entertaining necessities like floral dishes, printed linens, and vibrant flatware!
The Composed Counter Sale
Believe it or not, a fully-equipped kitchen can also be an expression of your sense of style. For those of you missing a few key pieces, One Kings Lane has created a collection of kitchen essentials – perfect for function, family, and entertaining.
Being a Frugal Design Girl means paying attention to the details. Colorful wine glasses, tumblers, coasters and cake stands make every occasion stylish and chic…and because they are re-usable, you don’t break the bank every time you entertain.
The Eat-In Kitchen Sale
The eat-in kitchen is the heart and soul of the home. It’s where friends and family gather, meals are prepped and served, and memories are made. With this sale, all of the hard work is done! One Kings Lane has selected their favorite kitchen and dining finds – from furniture to table linens – so that you can create your own freshly styled, functional eat-in kitchen. How awesome is that? You can get a “curated” look without paying a designer. Now THAT’s being frugal!

Today, FDG is excited to feature an awesome “DIY lamps” project from our friends over at ishouldbemoppingthefloor.com
Kristi wanted a splash of color to add to her son’s room, and a lamp find at Goodwill offered just the right opportunity. You can visit Kristi’s blog to see the step-by-step lamp painting instructions she offered to her readers.
Tag sales and thrift shops are a great place to find inexpensive fixtures! Before you buy, however, be certain the lighting has all of the necessary pieces, and does not show any exposed wiring. Safety first!
Do you have pictures featuring made-over DIY lamps of your own that you would like to share with FDG readers? If so, we’d love to hear from you!
Hmmm…maybe now that she has shared her lamp painting project, we can convince Kristi to share other details of her son’s room makeover with the readers at FDG….
Remember our previous blog crush on color guru Tobi Fairly?. Well guess what! Now you can learn Tobi’s inner-most design secrets by attending her Design Camp from A to Z!
You can join Tobi May 16-18th for a behind-the-scenes experience in her Little Rock studio. The 3 day all-inclusive camp will take you through Tobi’s unique 26-step system for creating beautiful interiors in a workshop setting, with plenty of time for Q & A and one-on-one attention from Tobi and her talented team.
Tobi Fairly design camp? Now that is the kind of camping FDG can totally appreciate.
Check out this awsome pair couches which could be used as booth seating for residential banquette dining areas! Talk about a Craigslist score!
Of course a re-do is a must before this can become kitchen booth seating. Microfiber in a splashy color with a few fun pillows for accent would be the bomb.
If only I had the space….
