Is anyone else here Pintrest obsessed? Pintrest has made me realize how much of a DIY-slacker I have become. I was the vintage-crafty-DIY-queen when I was planning our wedding. Since then, my office/craft room has become a cluttered catch-all for homeless items. From mail to dog food to winter blankets, you name it. I need to hire my friend Tatum, the Organizta to help me figure it all out.
In the meantime, here are some pintresting things I may some day find the time to do!
This is a far in the future DIY thing. I dream of a kitchen with a chalkboard wall for healthy menu planning, to do lists, affirmations and love notes. I would just like it to be a cheery color! Until Pintrest, I thought chalkboard paint only came in black! When the Hubs and I finally buy a house in our not too distant future, one of the kitchen walls WILL be painted with this!!
Two years ago I fell in love with a ruffle shower curtain from Anthropologie. It was white and pink and peach and absolutely dreamy. It was also over $100. Yeah, not going to happen! This week I stumbled upon a DIY Ruffle shower curtain tutorial on Pinterest! As soon as my office/craft room is cleaned up, you better believe I am breaking out the sewing machine for this puppy. If I can sew labels into 300+ shirts for LBG, I can definitely swing this thing of beauty!
If any of you are already following my Pintrest boards, you have probably noticed I have a bit of a wreath obsession. Who needs a whole board dedicated to wreaths? Apparently I do. I have no explanation for it, so I’ll blame it on my mother. My current wreath infatuation is with this living succulent wreath from Tipjunkie.com
And last on the DIY Pinteresting list is a chair makeover using old men’s ties. I have an amazing dining room table that seats 8 (in storage) that my Great Grandfather made. It was my parents wedding gift in 1967. I love it. When I was a kid I used to lay on the bench and color on the underside of it with pencils and red crayons. Bad little Terra(or). My scribblings are still there. It has 4 tall backed chairs with straw seats in addition to the long bench. The straw has definitely seen better days. All I need to do is hit the Goodwill for men’s ties and I can bring them back to life!
These are definitely lofty DIY goals for someone that has 2 small businesses to run in addition to a new 9-5 job! But somewhere I AM going to fit them in!
