Top 5 Weekly Home DIY Pinterest Pins

21 August 2013

Happy Wednesday!! I'm sitting here at my kitchen table and it is 6 a.m. trying to scramble to get this post done! Whew! Life has been really crazy these days! Although I feel like time is flying, in reality I am getting a ton of stuff done! Are you right there with me?

I don't know of a better way to distract myself from all the distractions than with Pinterest. Here are my top 5 weekly home pins of the week! You can find these and other home-related pins on my Home Improvement Pinterest board.

Talk about a total life hack! I have those junky Target/Walmart $20 bookcases and they are falling [literally] apart! And the backdrop is so hum-drum! Spice it up with some fabric wrapped cardboard. I love how easy and inexpensive this project is. It could be definitely accomplished within an afternoon!

Interesting vases and containers in your design future? Spare yourself the trip to World Market or Pier1 and make your own! Upcycling at its best! 

I'm a sucker for an awesome patio! There are so many things going on here from the large slate stone floor to the pop of color of the seat cushions to the Italian string lights. This is the type of place that you could seriously curl up and read a book with a hot cup of coffee each morning. 

Is this not the most awesome idea EVER? I never have a clue of where to put all my wrapping paper and stinking ribbon! But this is nestled behind a door with easy access. Genius! 

We have so many blankets! I brought blankets into the marriage and so did Mr. Collier. But what to do with them all? This blanket hutch provides a solution [provided they are adorable blankets in the right color]. I love how clean this looks and the simplicity of it all. Basically it is just a dresser with no drawers! 


  1. The fabric wrapped cardboard is on my list of things to do now! I just bought some of those cheap Target bookcases just to get my DVDs off the floor, and I can't stand seeing the plain back of the bookcase! Looks like I am going fabric shopping now!

  2. That patio is just gorgeous!! I love how they used an old dresser to store the extra blankets. My linen closet is overflowing so this would really clear up some space!

  3. That patio is amazing. My hubby and I are going to be putting in some hard work here soon on our patio. We may be getting a wooden deck, but I like the idea of stained concrete or something!

    By the way, I found your blog from Ashley (Let's Get Bananas)! Just thought I'd say hi :)

  4. That fabric backing is so clever... I'll be heading over to your boards later ;) :)
