101 Ways to Decorate Your Home Using Pinterest (11-15)

Here are some fun and easy ways to jazz up your home and make better use of your space!

11.  When I saw this post on Pinterest, I knew just what to do with it.  I had a little piece that would be perfect for this project.  I think it turned out great and it only cost me a couple of dollars worth of dollar store shadow boxes.

12. I think this picture really was showcasing the old window, but what I loved the most about it was the fabric banner as a border.  So, I grabbed some fat quarters from my stash, printed a template, used a rotary cutter to make them all uniform, and just used liquid stitch and some quilt binding to put it all together!

13.  Yet another fabulous way to use dead space on your walls.  I have a sliver of space in my kitchen and a lack of kitchen towel holders.  The perfect (and inexpensive!) solution?  $1.19 drawer pulls from Lowe's!  I even got to use a power tool for this one.  :)
14.  I'll be honest, I saw this display in IKEA before I saw the post on Pinterest, but this idea is just too good not to pass on.  For about $20, I finally have a way to showcase all of Jake's cool little projects that he makes at school.  And I also have a place to put those loose pics that I just don't know what to do with.

15.  I was DYING to make this little gem and it was DEFINITELY worth the few dollars and few minutes of effort.  For about $15 and about 15 minutes, I made a beautiful and functional way to display my earrings.  (I think I need to go shopping for some more!)

101 Ways to Decorate Your Home Using Pinterest (6-10)

Here are ideas 6-10 for decorating your house using ideas from Pinterest.  Proof that you really CAN use these ideas yourself!

6.  We have traveled a lot over the last 10 years (until we had children!) and took many beautiful photos that we love to look at.  When I saw this post for hanging art on a horizontal line, I knew this would be idea for our travel pictures and I just LOVE the way it turned out!

7.  In our new house, all of our kitchen appliance are stainless steel.  Nice to look at, but they're not magnetic!  I loved this idea of using a simple, cheap oil drip pan as a magnetic board.  Not only did it gave me a way to let Jake continue to play with all of his magnetic toys, but we can keep them in his room!

8.  Being the mother of two small children, keeping cleaning products in an accessible (and dangerous!) location is a concern.  I love this idea and used this method on the back of our laundry room door.  This got all of my cleaning products out from underneath the kitchen sink and behind a safety gate and closed door.

9.  I always have trouble lining up photos on the wall juuuuust right.  It's my control freak OCD nature.  This - idea - is - genius and all you need is wax paper!  I used it in Cooper's room and also with the horizontal line art in #6 above.  So easy and just the coolest thing ever!

10.  One day my husband walked in the door carrying an old pallet from work.  I guess he really DOES listen when I tell him about Pinterest projects I want to try!  Within 30 minutes he had cut it down and was already staining it.  Now, we're lazy and didn't go so far as to sand it down and make it all fine and pretty.  But, we think it turned out pretty well and we love the idea of this pallet turned wine rack!
