If you haven't yet jumped on the Pinterest bandwagon, we're about to give you five good reasons to hop on board. Gone are the days of torn out pages from your favorite magazines. Here's how you can start stocking up on home Pin-spiration!
Home decor & style ideas
Think of the web as a magazine subscription on steroids. It's filled with inspiration, it's delivered right to your home, and best of all, it doesn't clutter your coffee table! Pinterest is like the binder you've been keeping to hold your favorite color schemes, design style ideas and wish list items. Create a board to hold your home decor and style ideas, like this pinned bathroom renovation with money-saving tips (original pin source).
Do-it-yourself project ideas
When you're on a tight budget, the easiest way to save on style is with a little elbow grease. With the challenging economic times, do-it-yourself projects have become even more popular. If you're unsure how to tackle a particular project, chances are there's a blogger out there who recently took up the challenge and chronicled every little detail. Use Pinterest to organize your creative projects, like this pinned how-to tutorial on personalizing your home decor with painted lettering (original pin source).
Keeping clutter at bay is one of life's biggest challenges -- which means every single tip helps! If your cupboards, closets, drawers and shelves are bursting at their seams, an organization-themed board on Pinterest may be a good place to start. Collect ideas for new storage solutions, like this easy-to-make message board that will hold photos, notes and upcoming bills (original pin source), or this clever way to organize your hair-styling products (original pin source).
Seasonal decor ideas
They come around once a year, and each time they take us by storm! Don't fall behind with seasonal decor; instead, keep up by pinning inspiration all year long. Pin Christmas decor in July, Valentine's Day ideas in December, and July 4th tips in March. As a proactive pinner, you'll find that keeping up with the changing seasons is a cinch. Get started now, with this pinned tip for adding a patriotic touch to your front porch banister (original pin source).
