Done List

I knocked two things off my To Do list this week. They are now officially moved to my Done List.

First up: hanging a couple of Ikea BYGEL rails + s-hooks in our closets. This was a Pinterest inspired solution (I'm sure you're starting to catch on by now that all good ideas come from Pinterest) and they've been sitting in the package ever since I bought them a month or so ago.

My two favorite parts of this project...1) it was cheap - $1.99 for the rail and $.99 for the s-hooks, and 2) it's brilliant - no more wasted space behind the closet door and no more little things cluttering up my closet.

Project #2: moss-covered letters. These were one of my very first pins and I knew they would look great with all the red in our living room and bring in a natural-ish (as natural as moss glued on cardboard can be) element as well.

This project was idiot-proof, I kid you not. All it took were some cardboard letters, a roll of moss, a hot glue gun and a pair of scissors. I thought it would be a lot harder to cover the letters and hide seams but moss might just be the most forgiving crafting material on the planet. Total project time: an hour and a half.

What sorts of Pinterest-inspired projects have you been up to lately?


  1. Love and Love! Blog coming soon to reveal how I have been inspired by pinterest. :)

  2. Very natury. Would fit right in up North. I bet that to Ella, the PlayDoh creations are just as magnificent and meaningful as the ones you did. Unfortunately, I share your PlayDoh thoughts and hide ours way up high behind the 300 piece puzzle.

  3. I want to do something similar but with my daughter's purses. I just need to buy the S hooks.

  4. all I have to say is that I hope you invite me on all of your adventures...because it has proven to always be a good time..

    here's what I've been pinspired to do.
