Frugal House Kicks Off Thursday Night

Jun 6, 2013 2:45 PM

If you're looking for a way to spruce up your home and want to get the most bang for your buck, you may find the inspiration you're looking for at this year's Frugal House. Projector stands transformed into drink carts, light fixtures made from recycled plastic, and table settings made out of old chalkboards. These are just some of the ways decorators chose to repurpose items for this year's house. The annual event is a fundraiser for the North State Symphony, but it also gives people a chance to find creative new ways to restyle their home. Frugal House organizer Pat Macias is helping coordinate the design teams, which were each given a specific room to focus on.

"There's gonna be a wide variety of styles. So if you're not into contemporary, there's going to be something that's for you. If you want to see mid-century modern, there's a whole room of mid-century modern," she says.

This is the first year the event has been held in a brand new home. Decorators spent about two weeks filling the house with various "design it yourself" items and rather than going for a specific theme they all chose to focus on creativity. From the artwork on the walls to the clothes on the racks, everything must go. The Frugal House is located at 20 Abbot Circle in Chico. There will be a preview party with live music and food on Thursday night, and the house will be open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Friday and Saturday. Tickets can be purchased through the North State Symphony website.
