thursdays...i pinned it, it did it!

so my goal is that each thursday i will post a blog called "i pinned it, i did it!" if you have ventured onto Pinterest at all, you might be addicted to it like me and so many others i know.

Pinterest is a virtual pinboard. Pinterest allows you to organize and share all the beautiful things you find on the web. You can browse pinboards created by other people to discover new things and get inspiration from people who share your interests. People use pinboards to plan their weddings, decorate their homes, and share their favorite recipes.
(i took that description directly from my friend Leah's Blog, who is also going to share her projects she has pinned. you need to check out her blog and sweet little family. click here for Leah's Blog.)

since i had so many lovely things pinned on my boards i thought i better start doing some of them. time to stop looking at all the pretty things and make some of my own. i will share crafts and recipes i have done.

so today i am going to share a little home decorating idea i found.
click here to see the original idea. if you are not familiar with pinterest, you can click on any pin (picture) and it will take you to where it originated from, so you can see how to do it yourself.

so here is my take on it :)
i scored these awesome old bicycle baskets at an antique store and just fell in love with them. didnt know for sure what i would do with them. i used one on my Command Center wall you can see here, and the other was just waiting to be used for something creative. i loved this idea of using garden wall baskets for storing toys and books and thought i could use my other bicycle basket. love how it turned out. so easy, just hammered a nail in the wall. and cost me nothing because i already had the basket. isnt it cute?

happy pinning AND DOING!!

I absolutely LOVE it Bonn! I just did my first pin too. The iPhone case with the scrapbook paper. LOVE that I can change it anytime I want for only about $.59!

Bonnie that looks AWESOME!! And you don't need to give me any credit, I stole that paragraph from pinterest's "about" page :)

So glad we can keep each other accountable to do more then just pin!! Love it!!

love that you hung it low enough for Jori to put stuff away when she gets to that point. Great idea by the way.
