Oh, How Pinteresting Wednesday



I'm going to be doing a DIY project this weekend to chronicle for a future guest post on a friend's blog (stay tuned!), so I've been scouring Pinterest for ideas.  I couldn't decide if I was going to make some kind of wall hanging for inside my front door or re-do my dresser (which was a garage sale find and matches NOTHING in my bedroom).  The dresser won out, but I haven't completely decided what I'm going to do.  Thank goodness for Pinterest.

Here are a few of the inspirations (pinspirations?) I liked:



The wide two-tone stripes are classic and still interesting.

\\\\////



Supercute, but I don't know if I have the patience.

\\\\////




Again, this would take some patience, but I like it.

\\\\////





I love this, but it wouldn't match anything in my bedroom.

\\\\////



Oh, if only I was creative.

\\\\////



Simple, but still really interesting.  The bottom is metal on this one, but I could probably use a stencil or something.

\\\\////



Love the idea of painting the sideboards and the inside. I may actually do this.

\\\\////

I'm looking forward to doing this project, although I may not be so enthusiastic while I'm sanding it and waiting between coats of paint.  I'll share the results in a few weeks when I complete the post for my friend's blog.

Oh, and someday, I'm totally doing this dresser for my kid --- whether it's a girl or a boy:

    I also like the idea of painting the inside/sides of the drawer. I like the paper they have on the bottom- that's cute!!

  5. Wow...those dressers are so neat! Those would be very far off "someday things" if I decide to try it. :)

    ***Stopping by from the hop, have a great day!

  7. I can't wait to see what you end up doing with your dresser. I have two of them that I need to re-do, but can't decide what I want to do to them.
