Pinterest Challenge- January

Displaying pinterestchallengeJanuary.jpg


Do you by chance have any pins from Pinterest that you haven't got around to finishing, or lets be honest, started?

Maybe you have some pins that you totally forgot that you pinned. :)

I know I have A TON.

Well, today I have joined with some great bloggers to bring you a new monthly challenge.  It is called Made from Pinterest Challenge.

This challenge is basically a way for us to start to make all of the awesome projects that we have pinned.

I pinned this one a couple years ago and I am super bummed it took me this long to make it.  I love my new basket.

To get all the details on how to make this basket head over here. 

Also be sure to check out all of the other projects.  The links are all below!!

Wire Basket Tutorial

Well, I did it again, more storage.  I honestly cannot get it out of my brain.  The good news is, I am making good progress.  My house is getting more organized by the day!!

If I continue at the rate I will be done in no time.... 

To see more about what I have been organizing come check out here , here and here.

When I originally got asked to participate in this Made from Pinterest Challenge I didn't go looking specifically for an organization project.

Honestly, sometimes I get something in my brain and my subconscious takes over -geeeessshhhh.

It wasn't until I sat down to write this post that I realized that this is yet again another idea for organization. Clearly I need all the help I can get!! ( you guys are starting to see how cooky I am)

I hope that some of you are getting some organization ideas from all of this!!

I thought it would be fun to start making/finishing all those pinterest pins that I have pinned over the years.   

I decided to dig deep into my Pinterest boards and find an older project to make.  I came across this idea a couple of years ago.  I am bummed it took me this long to make it.  This one really is so cool!

TV Console Table Gets more Storage!!

You might be sick of me talking about how I need more storage.  What can I say, at heart I really really want to be one of those gals who has an organized clean house. Today I am going to share with you how my tv console table is getting more storage!

In an attempt to get as much storage bang for my buck, I have been doing some furniture rearranging.  This stand, where our TV now resides used to be in my daughters room. 

 Poor girl doesn't have a dresser now!! Luckily, I am in the process of refinishing the cutest (and oldest)  dresser ever! 

The console table that used to hold our TV can now be found sitting over here.

I have always loved to rearrange the furniture in our houses.  

Am I the only one who does that?? 

I feel like when I rearrange the furniture it sort of curbs my desire to do some major renovation or other crazy idea that might be swimming around my brain.

This most recent furniture switch has been great.

Schedule Your Pinterest Pins Then Sit Back and Relax

I usually don't talk much about blogging here at Hawthorne and Main but I found something too good not to share!!  Today I am going to be talking about an awesome new way to pin stuff on Pinterest.  If you are a blogger then you probably already know the power of Pinterest.

Keep reading because this new way of pinning has changed my life!!

What is Board Booster?  

Board Booster is a new pinning scheduler that allows you to set a pinning plan that is effective and saves SO much time!!

Let me first be honest.

Organization Board Tutorial

We have been living in our fixer upper for about 1.5 years (gosh has it been that long already)!!

 I feel like I am running from one disaster to another.  Fixing up this house has been a lot of work but there has been so many great feelings of accomplishment too.   Because fixing up this house has been my main focus since we have moved in, I have had little time to really get it organized.(aaahhhh) 

I have made a pact with myself this year that I am finally going to get this house organized once and for all.

Being a blogger, mom, wife, house cleaner, cook, taxi ect ect.  There are a lot of things running through my brain at any given moment.

If I get an idea for a blog post or remember something that I need to grab from the store, chances are it will get written down on a scrap piece of paper, a note.  A note will eventually find itself in a pile somewhere.
