A Nautilus extension called "nautilus-share" did what you want, but it seems is discontinued and it isn't no more in Fedora repositories (in other distributions it's still).

As a workaround, I would go to gnome-control-center share and activate "Personal file sharing". What it does is share your ~/Public folder to your LAN. It's not the same of sharing the folders you want, but it works.
