Pinterest DIY's

Like I have said before, I am pretty obsessed with Pinterest, especially their DIY section. While I haven't done hardly any of the DIY's I have pinned, a girl can dream.. right? One day, when I'm rollin' in the dough and have the funds to buy the materials for craft projects and have my own house to decorate, my DIY board will come in very handy (I hope!). Anyways, I decided to share a few of my new DIY pins with you ladies so that maybe you can put them to good use since I probably won't be getting around to them for a while. If you do tackle any of these DIY's I would love to hear your comments/tutorials and pictures of how they turned out! I love a good DIY story!

Who knew you could run burlap through your printer? I can think of a couple wonderful quotes, bible verses, or a monogram I would love to put on burlap, then on a canvas to hang around the house. This is such a good tip that I never would have thought about. Have any of you done this? Is it as easy as it seems?

I totally need to raid Andrew's closet and do this. The best part is, you don't have to use any materials. Just tie the sleeves and you have a new shirt! I know a lot of girls in college that could have used this tutorial so they didn't have to wear their cocktail dresses to their 9am class. Shame on you.

What a cute idea. I think this is way more classy and would fit in with a lot of kitchens much better than those plastic bright colored letters we had when I was a kid.

Okay, Andrew is going to have to really love me for me to make this one.. but I absolutely LOVE this. I would definitely have to ask my Nana for a little bit of help but this is so darling. I love the colors and the length. This might be finding a way in my closet sooner rather than later.

These would make such cute decorations for a kitchen. All you have to do is use a hot glue gun to write whatever words you wish you display, then use spray paint to cover the entire item. So easy and classic.

Pinterest. Is. Awesome.

On another note, I had an interview at a lawyers office in downtown Charlotte this morning for a receptionist position. It's kind of discouraging that I spent four years getting a degree and hoped to be an event planner and now I am interviewing to become a receptionist for numerous different places. I know it's a tough world out there and I would be making more money than I am now and getting full benefits so I guess I should just count my blessings. I really need this job at the moment so wish me luck :)

Have a happy Thursday everyone. It's almost Friday, which means it's about to be a looong weekend! 


  1. I love how Pinterest has so many cute, do-able ideas! I could get lost pinning :)

  2. holy crap, that plaid top idea is to die for! :)

  3. I love all these and have pinned a few myself, but I must say, when I saw the plaid-shirt-turned-cute-top I thought, "Wow, that's cute" but your description of what you can imagine girls in college could have used it for--HILARIOUS! That is an awesome observation!


  4. cute pins! The job market can be very discouraging...good luck with the search


I love to hear from my readers!
