Pinterest Picks of the Week
I just found myself distracted by Pinterest (as usual) and thought I’d “round up” some of the cooler ideas I’ve seen on there for all-y’all’s reading pleasure.
If you want to follow me on Pinterest, just click the Pinterest button in the right sidebar.
And now let’s get this ball a-rolling:
How about this idea for hiding cords? Pretty nifty.
Or a welcome post with a hook for changing out signs? SUPER cool. I have a 4x4 in the basement I could use for this project.
Of course you know I have to include some yard ideas. These tiered raised beds would be perfect for a sloping yard that may or may not have the best soil to begin with. And aren’t you digging those mini pergolas!? Perfect for hanging baskets, supporting a trellis for climbing plants, and just providing that wonderful appeal of good hardscaping.
Have a nice big tree in your yard? I LOVE this idea to hang an upside down papasan chair from a branch, and then use fabric tied to the chair as a little tent. For a garden wedding, I think this would also make a gorgeous wedding arbor or a neat place for the cake or guest book!
Because I’m just in a pergola mood. Not sure this is really a pergola – it might be better described as a fancy trellis, but it’s cool regardless. Many of us live so close to our neighbors that a little backyard privacy goes a long way.
Hello!!! Who has kids? What a fun water toy to make with them out of super-cheap PVC pipe?
For another fun kid idea, here’s a SLIME recipe! I know, because we all need slime in our lives. But really, I remember making slime for the first time at a 5th grade summer camp, and I still remember how COOL it was and even how it smelled! Babysitters take note: taking crafts like this to your babysitting jobs will make you the favorite sitter
And finally, here’s a great way to clean up old, water stained terra cotta planters. I have a few that stayed out all winter that are in serious need of a paint job like this.
Hope you are as “pinspired” as I am!
Have a great day and thanks for stopping by
