So, I'm sure most of you have heard about/use pinterest. Lots of people complain that though it makes you feel artistic, crafty and creative, all you're doing is sitting at a computer looking at pictures. While that sums up a lot of it, I actually have used some recipes I found on there, as well as some general household tips, and over the weekend I (we) finally made a couple of the items on my "DIY Ideas" board. My husband and I had ourselves a Pinterest day! I'll be posting his creation in another post. My main item was a jewelry display. I have a lot, and I mean A LOT of jewelry, and am always looking for ways to store/display it. Also, with the addition of a poppy to our family, I need them to be in a place she can't get to them. So, I saw this idea on thelook.today.msnbc.msn.com that I liked a lot. This lady used drift wood, which I liked the look of, but didn't know where I was going to get from. And she used... knobs. I LOVE KNOBS!!! There's a whole isle dedicated to them at most Hobby Lobbies, and I have a really hard time deciding where to start shopping; there, or in the scrappbooking section. My mom bought me my knobs on vacation together. If you're a garage saler, I'm sure you can find fun ones that way. But, I got mine at Hobby Lobby. Their price ranged from anywhere between $3.99 to $5.99. So, I got 5 that complemented each other (I went with grays, whites and blacks, so it would go with any room's color scheme)
Our senior pastor makes things out of wood, so I got a piece of distressed looking wood from him. Then, for extra display space, I got ceiling hooks and frame hooks at ACE (the helpful place). I measured out where the holes should be, then drilled the holes (with some help from the hubby), and voila...!
So, just to recap, here's what you need:
1 Piece of wood
5 (or however many) knobs
Ceiling (or cup) hooks
So, have fun pinning as well as creating, and let me know if you have any suggestions, or pinterest inspired crafts you think I should try out!
