Weekend Most Pinteresting Projects

I found all of the following projects on Pinterest. All links go back to the original blog there the Pinterest post came from, and all photos belong to the original blog posters.

A blog named Mamie Jane’s featured several trash to treasure projects with old casters. I love the book ends and the photo wheel.


Who would have thought of building a snowman from old propane tanks? I like this one featured on Pieced Pastimes.

I love the pot rack that Mia from Lilly and Mia’s blog created from an old cast iron fence.

A blog called Totally Green Crafts featured wine bottle lights that are cool!

Weekend’s Most Pinteresting

This week, I’m dedicating my “Most Pinteresting” post to home improvement projects that class up outdated elements in the home. I found each project on Pinterest.
 
The first project is from DIY Design. Do you have ugly bi-fold closet doors that just cream 1970s? I love this solution! Be sure to check out the full post on DIY Design for the tutorial.
Hate the color of your outdated cabinets? Try this tutorial from Monica Wants It.
Be sure to check out the follow-up Q and A about the project too.
Looking for more of a distressed look? Then this tutorial from Simply Rooms (by Design) might interest you. The before and after picture below features the new hardware as well as the new finish (in case you were wondering). See the real before picture on the blog entry.
Check out what a little board and batten detail can do for a room in this post from Just a Girl.

Weekend’s Most Pinteresting Roundup

This week, I pinned these Trash to Treasure ideas on Pinterest.
Here’s a clever idea for a shutter from Buckets of Burlap.
Using a rake for a curtain rod? I think so! Love this idea from Better Homes and Gardens.
I guess I haven’t been as busy as usual on Pinterest this week, so I have only two favorites to show you this weekend.

Weekend Most Pinteresting Roundup

Here are my most recent favorite blog posts that I discovered on Pinterest:
1. I love this vintage rolling pin turned into a towel bar. There is a tutorial on the Olive Bites blog.
2. I had to hunt around to find the original blog post for this pin!* I guess the problem was it’s in a language I don’t speak. But the idea is cute! Here’s a spool holder made from and old frame and you’ll find a picture tutorial on the Trois Fois Rien blog.  Well, if you speak French, you’ll have more than a picture tutorial!
3. If you have a vintage window with broken glass, you might find this idea useful. If you replace the panes with chicken wire, you’ll have this little memo center. See Rusty Rooster Vintage for the tutorial.
4. I hadn’t thought about painting my old suitcases before but I really like this whitewashed look. I’ll keep it in mind when I’m shopping at yard sales this season. Sometimes I pass them up because they don’t look vintage enough. Problem solved! 
5. I just picked up a giveaway crib (just the headboard and footboard) at a yard sale and I can’t wait to try this! So cool. A crib turned chalkboard. Great way to use those ones that aren’t considered safe for babies anymore. The Red Kitchen has the full post.
*One note about Pinterest. Too many pins lead to just a JPG photo, rather than a blog post. I try to fix that and only re-pin to actual posts. Once in a while, I miss one that doesn’t have a link, but I try to make sure I give credit to the person who took the time to post these fantastic ideas.

My Favorite Most Pinteresting Posts from the Past Week

Pinterest is a treasure trove of ideas for people who love trash to treasure decorating! Here are my top five favorite ideas from this past week. I pin back to the blog post, not the Pinterest link for copyright purposes.
I love this upcycled Coca-Cola tub table from Muddaritaville:
All it takes is a glass table top, and that can be salvaged from another table.
These towel holders from Not Just a Housewife are awesome:
This old window turned memo board was from Little Green Bean:
Aren’t these dragonflies from table legs and ceiling fan blades from Lucy Designs sweet?
And this Pottery Barn inspired lantern holder from Unskinny Boppy is fantastic:
The great thing about all of these ideas is that they aren’t terrible difficult to recreate! More ideas to add to my “if I had time” list. To see more details about any of these projects, click the blog title link above each photo.

Weekend Top 6 Most Pinteresting

Since I asked a question about what you would do with a wire basket in WWYD Wednesday, I’ll share some of my favorite wire basket ideas from Pinterest.
I have several wire baskets that came from a freezer, and I use two of them on the shelves in my refrigerator. They hold all of the little jars that usually would get lost at the back of the frig and I can pull them out like drawers to get to stuff. However, I’m thinking I might rescue them for decorating after seeing the fun ideas on Pinterest.
I love this basket. See post
This one is featured in a catalog. It might look vintage, but it’s imported. See post
I wouldn’t have thought of putting baskets on the wall for books, but what a great idea! See post
And here’s another idea for baskets on the wall. I think it may be a bicycle basket. See Post
I love this basket used as a lamp “shade”. It doesn’t shade much, but it makes a great statement. See post
Hanging the other way, a basket with candles makes a romantic chandelier. See post.
I hope you found those as Pinteresting as I did. Happy weekend!

Weekend Most Pinteresting

I was at a crafters retreat all weekend, and I forgot to set up a post before I left. Oops. So, I’ll share my most favorite and “pinteresting” finds from last week.
I love this little memo board from Cinnaberry Suite. It’s made from a cookie sheet!
This unnusal shelf from Better Homes and Gardens caught my eye. I have one hanging right side up by my front door, but this one is unique.
I like the creative use of an old door knob in this bird house.

Aren’t these snowmen from Mason jars or mayonnaise jars cute? Weeping Cherries has the whole tutorial.

This tutorial on Moda Bake Shop teaches how to turn a ruined lamp shade into a fantastic quilted shade.

And that’s what I find Pinteresting!

Weekend Pinterest Favorites

My favorites from Pinterest this week. I tried to track the photos down to the original blogs. Notice the mason jar theme…
This mason jar idea makes for creative storage of arts and crafts supplies and much more! See the original post on Weeping Cherries.
These jars are tinted for decoration purposes. See how to make them on the Momtastic blog.
Better Homes and Gardens shows some pendant lights made from mason jars.

 And I saw this other pendant light idea on Pinterest too, but I couldn’t find the blog it belonged to. When you click the photo, you’ll land on the site where I got if from.

I love this idea for painting the inside of a pantry cabinet with chalkboard paint from Eleven Magnolia Lane.
I love, love love these paper roses made from old books featured on Pinterest from 100 Layer Cake.
This upcycled silver serving spoon turned wall sconce from Katies Rose Cottage Designs Blog is sweet.

I’m Hooked on Pinterest

Follow Me on PinterestI finally had a chance to check out Pinterest today. I’ll admit, I didn’t see what all the hype was about until I actually signed up and played with it. Oh. My. There is just a ton of great stuff on there! Lots of great T2T ideas too. I resisted because I didn’t want to waste more time surfing around the internet, but…I’m hooked and I can’t help it!

In fact, I’ve decided to make it a regular feature. I’ll feature Pinterest Projects on weekends. (Check out the other features such as Transformation Tuesday, WWYD Wednesday, and more).

Check out these fun projects I found in my browsing:

I’ll show more in the coming weeks. And you’ll find some of my favorite T2T pics from my blog and others in the Crafts and Decorating section of my Pinterest Page.
