Saw it, Pinned it, Completed

I am not the craftiest of people and although I can get ideas in my head of how I want a room to look, it's hard for me to pull it all together. Thank god for pinterest because if it weren't for some project's I found on there I'd probably have bare walls throughout the house! I worked on a few pinterest projects the past few weeks and finished them this weekend. I have to do all my projects when I have family in town otherwise trying to complete anything while taking care of both kiddo's is impossible.

One project I had been wanting to work on was our front entryway. It's a huge wall and we had one small picture hanging. I found this idea on pinterest

This girl's blog is amazing. Click on the picture to be taken to the direct link or click HERE to be taken to her awesome blog House of Rose!

Here is my entryway
I just need to replace that table and then I will be happy with the finished product

Another project I had been wanting to do was for Ethan's room. It was so easy to decorate Gianna's room in everything pink, princessy, frilly and girly but for some reason I had a hard time decorating Ethan's room. I wanted something bold, lots of primary colors, yet that didn't involve a theme. Something he could grow into. And then I stumbled across this on another one of my favorite blogs Vintage Pretty Pearl

E's finished product

I think it turned out great. It adds just enough color to his room and will be something that we can keep up for awhile

Any pinterest or blog ideas you found and tried out?


  1. They both turned out great! Pinterest is so addicting! I have hundreds of ideas I want to try. I did find an idea for a craft desk and I'm really happy with how it turned out. I actually just wrote a post about it :)

  2. GREAT job! I am a Pinterest addict. There are so many great ideas on there for just about everything. For all the hundreds of boards that I've pinned, I've only tried one. I tied ribbon to my kitchen cupboards and hung my Christmas cards on them to be displayed. Very festive :) There are many others I want to try though. You did a great job though :) That first entryway picture display I have pinned to my board as well :)

  3. very cute! i have stuff to do one for our entry way too, just need to get it up there!
