It started with the quotes (you know, I love a good quote!) and now it’s quickly become something else.
I started off looking only at the pins that my Pinterest “friends” pinned.
When my friends were not pinning fast enough for my taste… I started to look at the “everything” section. Here I can see what everyone out there in Pinterest Land is pinning and I see the constant updates. Unfortunately, when I look at Pinterest in this way I have to weed through a lot of very, very strange pins (okay, I mean really strange). But, I am almost always rewarded with something great to “re-pin.”
What I am really, really enjoying is the “Do It Yourself” (DIY) projects on Pinterest. I keep imagining myself tackling all of the DIY projects that I pin.
I have very big Pinterest Plans! I am going to:
- buy used furniture and re-do it
- sand and stain my hard word floors all by myself
- paint my brick fireplace
- build an outdoor firepit
- frame handkerchiefs and/or scrapbook paper for artwork
- make all sorts of things out of old t-shirts
- make built in bookshelves using only Ikea furniture
- frame a giant bathroom mirror
Really, my DIY Board on Pinterest has endless possibilities for my time (which I never have enough of).
I don’t have any extra time and I don’t need any encouragement from Pinterest for more DIY projects, but here I sit day after day pinning ideas.
Last night, I decided to paint my kitchen table… turquoise. I moved the cars out of the garage and set up “shop.” My family is a bit in shock that we will have a turquoise blue table, but I hope they will be pleasantly surprised when I’m finished.
Thank you, Pinterest for that idea.
I wonder what my next Pinterest obsession will be…
