Pinned It and Did It!

Are y'all sick of hearing me talk about Pinterest yet?  Hmm...so anyhoo...enough talking...how about some doing?

Rain Gutter Shelving

Bookshelves made from rain gutters, easy and awesome!

My Version:

The low-down: so easy, so cheap, very sturdy!  I put one shelf on each level of our bunk beds, and they are perfect since there's not really room for a side table with the bunks.  *Love* this project!

Ikea Spice Rack Shelving

The low-down: Love these!  We (obviously) use these for coloring books, and they are perfect for that.  


Baked Avacado Fries


Pinspiration:
Are you kidding!?  Heavenly & Healthy baked Avocado fries!

 My Version:

The low-down:  Eh.  Not worth the effort.  They were crispy.  They were dippable.  They just weren't very good. And I love avacados!  I think they were just bland.  If you try these, add some major spice, mmmkay?


Green Beans with Bacon


Pinspiration:
Green beans & Bacon. I just made this and am experiencing my first crush on a vegetable.  Ever.

Mine:
Aww, snap!  I didn't take a picture!?!?  That's terrible, because the low-down on this one is that it is the best thing in the whole universe.

Dawn & Vinegar Cleaning Solution

Pinspiration:
Tub & Shower Magic (Dawn & White Vinegar.) Oh my gosh I made this stuff and it's fantastic! You should see my sinks, showers and faucets They look brand new! Must try.

Mine:

The low-down: This is that miracle cleaning solution for soap scum (et cetera) that I have seen time and time again on Pinterest.  So I finally tried it, and yes, it worked really well.  But it requires more effort than spraying on some Lysol All-Purpose, and for me isn't quite worth that effort.  Is it better for the environment?  I dunno.  If you tell me it is, I will use it again.

In conclusion, actually doing some pins over the last three months recently has been so much fun.  It has yielded some great results, and some "so-so" results.  In any case, its your turn!  Go get some pinsperation of your own;)  You can always get started by following me here!

    I've been meaning to get around to the gutter and spice rack book shelves, those really are genius ideas.
    Those avocado fries looked amazing too.

  3. This is great for someone who is afraid of getting on Pinterest for fear of spending a whole day there! I can just check out your experiments!
