I know that I’m about 3 years late to the party, but I’ve recently become obsessed with Pinterest. Honestly, I never used to “get” the attraction before, but I think it was because I never tried using it. After all, the unknown can be a bit…overwhelming.
The only reason I thought to use Pinterest recently was because I was looking for some hair inspiration. I figured it would be a better place to find inspiration than Google or Instagram. I did find some cool ideas on there, but it was just the beginning.
A little while after that search for ideas, I was in one of those random organizational moods and wondered what could be done to organize my extremely messy accessories. I thought to myself, why not take a look at Pinterest? It didn’t take long to find some inspirational photos, and I found an idea that I really wanted to try. It involved some thin rods hung in rows and some metal rings, so I figured it would be easy enough.
The hardest part was buying the materials, simply because what I’m looking for isn’t an actual product. Normally when I’m DIY’ing bigger projects such as shelving or cabinets, I’ll get my supplies from somewhere like Tradefix Direct.
However this time I decided to shop locally. 5 stores later, I ended up with some Cafe Rods and several packages of shower rings. I’ll definitely stick to shopping online in the future after this experience!
Overall, the final product turned out to be amazing, so I took a bunch of “Before” and “After” shots. Since this was a successful Pinterest project, I think it’s safe to say that I’m officially obsessed.
I have a link to my Pinterest profile on my blog. You should check it out!
I’m also going to have a “Pin It” button on my posts, moving forward 🙂
Have you done any DIY’s that were inspired by something you saw on Pinterest?
