Tips & Tricks Thursday – Pinterest Favorites
I know I had promised some great accessorizing tips today but…
I was looking around Pinterest last night (okay, really, sucked in would be a more accurate description), and came across a few simple DIY projects that I just had to share.
Some of these were SO ingenious (you know, the smack-palm-to-forhead kind where you say, “Oh my gosh, why didn’t I think of that?” – which I actually did once), that I’ve resolved to try them all. But I couldn’t wait until they were finished to share the ideas – taking into consideration my track record for getting DIY projects done lately… (sigh)
I hope you find inspiration like I did, and I’d love to hear about it if you decide to try any of them!
1. Home Made Book Ends
Officially moved to the top of “The List”! I can’t tell you how much I LOVE this idea (this was the forehead-smacking one, by the way…) What a great (and super simple) way to customize an object for your home. Now, I wonder if I could find some Boston Terriers to paint emerald…
2. Faux Nail Head Trimmed Cork Board
Seriously. How great is this idea?! I was inspired by this and bought some cork squares to cover ($7 for 4 squares at Target). Now, I’m on the hunt for just the right fabric.
3. Fridge Coasters
Who’d have thought, right? I just don’t know if I’m ready for y’all to see the inside of my fridge, yet. But we’ll see…
4. DIY Gold Trim on Black Frames
…love, love, LOVE this!!!!
Actually, I should rephrase that as …doing, doing, DOING this!!!
I hope that after looking at these, the wheels in your mind are turning… I know mine are …again.
