Fabulous & Frugal Fun: Out of the Blue

While I was having a down-home brunch with old pals at the Blue Jay Café in San Francisco, I was struck by the ingenious wainscoting that was used along the walls.

Made entirely out of louvered shutters, they face alternating directions, giving the wall a unique texture when viewed from different directions. You can almost imagine opening them all up to reveal a gorgeous landscape, but I am quite sure that if you did, you'd just see wall!

For more thrifty fun, pick up The Find: The Housing Works Book of Decorating with Thrift Shop Treasures, Flea Market Objects, and Vintage Details at Borders,Barnes & Noble, Amazon or Powell's.

Always Frugal, Always Fabulous!
