Thanks to Abby, I’m a new devotee of the Young House Love blog … and I love the Bower Power blog … so when we saw that they were doing a Pinterest Winter Challenge (along with Megan and Michelle), we both wanted to join in! (You can see Abby’s Pinterest success here!)
At first, I thought I could just post about the desk I built.
But then I realized that would be a cop-out.
Because the whole point of the challenge is to actually do something.
Be honest … how much time do you spend perusing Pinterest?
And how much time do you spend re-creating the stuff you find on Pinterest and love?
It’s embarrassing, right?
I have been in love with this wall for months.
I think it’s whimsical.
And it makes me want to spend time in this room.
So I’ve been thinking it’s something I want to do for the room our littles share. But I’ve been a little slow on the uptick.
But that changes now.
Because this week I sucked it up and went to Michael’s and bought a few letters to really get me started.
I bought “I” “J” “W” and “T” … painted white 12″ MDF letters … because these are the first letters of all our names and I thought it would be nice if they sort of matched.
Then I bought some Spray Mount Artist Adhesive.
I already had some printed card stock. And a few letters I had discovered while thrifting (seven, to be exact). And some craft paint.
And now all I needed was a few hours by myself.
Made myself laugh.
Or finished decorating the letters I have (5 out of 11 … not bad).
Or mounted them on the wall.
I’m happy to be taking part in the challenge, and glad I finally got started!
