The Pinterest Challenge – Winter Edition

Like many blog readers, we are big fans of Young House Love and Bower Power Blog. These women gave us the courage and inspiration to start our own blog…so they’re of course considered “Hall of Famers” in our book!
Anyways, these lovely ladies have a Pinterest Challenge going on and we decided this was a great opportunity to showcase one of our fav projects!

I originally saw the seafoam shutter board on Pinterest via BHG.com.  I immediately thought it was a clever, unique, and adorable idea.

One trip to Habitat for Humanity Restore and I was good to go.

Here’s my original post on transforming these shutters from drab to fab in no time!

Clothespins now hold all kinda of goodies…

Like Bridget’s creative New House Announcement.

Some vintage keys…

And photobooth prints and pictures of my favorite city.

Clothespins help hold everything in place. I even have a few fun clothespins with a geographical twist! It’s simply just a map mod podged right onto both sides of the pin.

I use this West Elm bowl to hold extra clothespins…just in case I want to change things up on a shutter.

I gotta say, I love any sort of Pinterest Challenge. I sometimes feel like Pinterest can be so incredibly overwhelming. Here we are pinning all of these fabulous pins…delicious recipes, gorgeous outfits, and of course DIY projects galore.  Pinterest sometimes makes me feel like a big underachiever. But it’s time to stop pinning, and start doing!

So, I’m oh-so-happy to join the hosts of this Pinterest Challenge and actually re-create a “pinspiration.

I’ll be linking up to these 4 lovelies…so be sure to check out their blogs for all of the link-up action.

So what are your thoughts on Pinterest? Are you pinning and doing? Or just pinning like many of us?

Shutter Picture Boards

Everytime I go into our Habitat for Humanity Restore, I get weirdly excited over all of the old wooden doors, windows, and kitchen cabinets…with every item under $20. Then, I realize that I don’t actually own a house. Bummer.

Since there will be no loft renovations in our future (gotta keep the landlord happy), I opted out of browsing Habitat’s kitchen section, and instead headed towards the old doors and windows aisle.

I found these babies and they were only $5 for the duo.

They really were not in bad shape. All I did was unscrew the hardware, sand them down, and give them a nice bright shade of white spray paint!
They currently reside in our guest room. And hold all types of cards…
Pictures…
Oh you know, mementos near and dear to my heart. Like this classy “Awkward Family Photo” card.
Just keeping it real for our guests.
You can easily make your own!
These bad boys could add a nice pop of color to any kitchen (maybe in teal or red..swoon), and act as a little organization center for incoming mail.
