2013 - Year In Review

2013 was filled with Pinterest projects for me!  I tried everything from recipes to making home decor. Some came out great, some not so much!  Here's a look back at some of my favorites!

Turning my Biggest "PASS" into One of My Favorite Projects

One of my very first projects was a DIY Wall Art using wood, spray paint and a rubber welcome mat.  It was an epic fail.  You can read about it here.  Well after spending so much on it, I didn't want the materials to go to waste so I did some recycling and created one of my favorite projects from my greatest fail.  This was the end result.  You can read the entire post here.

My Biggest Pin Project of the Year 

My biggest pin project of the year was my fireplace makeover inspired by Pinterest.  You'll see in the full post that I did not really do much of anything on this project LOL, other than pick out the materials and surf Pinterest.  It was really the hard work of my husband and Dad that made this one come together, but none the less, it came it awesome!

The Pin that Has Benefited My House the Most

As you know there are a ton of things on Pinterest to help you clean and organize your home.  Well not all of them come out the way the original pinner says but one that blew me away was How to Clean a Microfiber Couch.  I have two small kids and my couch is always horrifying so this pin has really helped us keep our couch clean and we've used it regularly.

My Favorite Pinterest Inspired Event

My little sister got married this year and as her Maid of Honor I had to pull out all the stops on her shower.  We of course had a budget so I turned to Pinterest for inspiration.  My favorite part was the favors.  I used pashmina scarves as chair cover sashes and gave them to guests as their thank you.  It looked great and everyone really liked that they were different than the usual box of chocolates.  There were a ton of Pinterest inspired things at the shower so read the full post for more!
