I’ve been anti-Pinterest for awhile. I think I’m pretty creative and did not want to see others’ ideas and stifle my creativity.
From what I’ve gathered, it seems Pinterest has helped put lots of pressure on having the “perfect party”. In my opinion, the perfect party is good food, good friends and a good time. A million homemade DIY projects doesn’t factor into this equation.
But, as we are about to embark on a new house… I decided to join in hopes of easily accessing decorating ideas. Our new house needs paint: EVERYWHERE. I’m talking cabinets, moldings, walls, ceilings, etc. I’ve been learning that there are numerous paint companies with their own paint colors. And you can buy paint from several different locations. That’s like exponential math; it’s overwhelming. Did you also know there are dozens and dozens of grey/biege combos?! I joined Pinterest to help with this.
So this is how I have been Pinteresting…
Yes, those are screen shots. My friend P tells me that this is not how one should Pinterest… something about projects and pins. But so far, it works for me. Oh, and apparently I should get the app.
I’ve successfully narrowed wall paint choices down to four. It only took two hours. I feel accomplished. Then, today, JB tells me that he wants a yellow room. YELLOW?!? I guess that means a few more hours on the Pinterest.
So, that’s my review of two weeks on Pinterest. I give myself a C-. Definitely room for improvement.
First, get the app. Then definitely make project boards and pin things. It’ll be way easier (and more organized) than screen shots. And your followers will be able to see what you like 🙂
Thanks! I’m looking forward to being able to share my awesomeness with the world 😜
