Oh Pinterest!

My favorite boards to look at on Pinterest are the "do it yourself" posts. Here are some of my favorites as of late.

Create a moving coffee and storage area table with crates found from Michaels or Hobby Lobby.

Create a Vase by cutting a wine bottle. You're probably thinking to yourself. "You can't cut a wine bottle you dumbass!" Supposedly you can. 
Soak a string in nail polish remover. 
Wrap string around bottle.
Light string on fire, over sink while rotating the bottle.
And that's it! I'm interested to try it.

Stain a world map on to 2x4's. This would be awesome to have on a living room wall. Or a game room! So cool.

Make lights that glow patterns by wrapping a doily around a light bulb and spray paint. Some how I don't think this will turn out as well as the picture, but it would be so cool to have those lights in the back yard.

Take caulk from the hardware store and run lines down the back of your rug to keep it from moving/slipping on hard surfaces.

Drill holes in your fence and stick marbles in to create beautiful lights when the sun hits. I would love to try this!

When I try these ideas myself, I'll let you know how they turn out. Happy Friday!



  1. These are all cool ideas. I'm interested in the wine/vase one. Let me know how it goes please!!

  2. This:

    also reminds me of the map art you have up there!

    And knock off decor is a fabulous blog, I bet you'd love it!!

  3. Oh my goodness, I love that marble idea! (My fence is too covered in ivy for it, I'm afraid.)
