I have almost 2,000 things I have pinned to my pinterest boards. That site has become where all my messy thoughts, dreams and projects have a resting place instead of floating around my cluttered brain. But as with most projects I find it harder and harder to have the time and energy to try them. There are however, a few that I managed to accomplish and I thought I would show you that pinterest ideas can work in real life.
I saw this and knew I had more than one of these old rake heads lying around.
It works great! I only put my most frequently worn necklaces (ie my costume jewelry ones, nice ones don't go on here) but it makes it a snap to pick and choose which to go with my outfit for the day. Since I answer phones all day earrings are kinda out for me, and necklaces and bracelets have become my thing.
Scarves are another of my things. I have tons of them and can't seem to stop buying them in every color. There are a lot of ways to organize scarves but I found this idea:
I found a package of metal shower curtain rings at Goodwill, put them on a wooden hanger and tried it myself:
I like the way it keeps them tidy and also displays them in a way that is easy to make a selection. They do have a tendency to slide to one end if you don't have them spaced just right. My plan is to just get so many scarves they can't move anyway. :)
I also did this and put them in one of these.
I also did this which I blogged about before.
Not to mention numerous recipes I've tried!
You can find me on pinterest here, but I warn you I'm currently obsessed with Doctor Who and pin like it...which is a whole other blog post on the way.
