  • Projects like these are so useful and clever. I’ve tried in the past to make boards on Pinterest for them as well as Stumbleupon, but I get distracted with my other online endeavors. I’m glad to have access to already completed boards! I’m not much of a fan of Martha Stewart, but luckily this article provides me with a plethora of resources. Thanks a ton!

  • I love Pinterest, such an awesome place to find ideas and such. I saw some of these boards before but not most so thanks for sharing such an awesome list with us. I am going to be checking these out!

  • love this article. I am a huge fan of pinterest – always full of great ideas. Thanks for sharing! i am definitely going to check out these boards

  • I absolutely love pinterest, because it gives me ideas whenever I need them. Often, I will see ideas for things to make, or for things to do around the home, that I didn’t even know I was interested in until I saw them. It’s astonishing, but quite cool at the same time. I will check out all of the ones that you recommend, as they look great. I guess that’s my full evening sorted out for me, then!

  • I used Pinterest often when making furniture out of pallets. There are lot of pictures all way over the internet and Pinterest collect all the pictures as well as links to the original websites together. I definitely want to check out some of these boards. A Subtle Revelry look like a board I can get into. I really interested in working with yarn and paper so this look right in my alley.

  • Even though I am a new user to Pinterest, I will definitely be checking out every single of of these DIY boards. Doing DIY projects are something I love doing on my free time as it is a great way to waste time while actually getting very cool projects done. I am very excited especially to check out Real Simple: New Uses for Old Things and I will definitely be following them

  • I don’t have kids yet, but my favourite DIY projects on Pinterest are the ones for kids, like the cardboard guitar pictured above. Much of the home decor DIY on Pinterest can cost an arm and a leg for supplies (and end up costing almost as much as the store bought equivalent). The kid’s projects are the best – cardboard, sticks, paint, stuff you have lying around the house. It really encourages you to use your imagination and remember the possibilities of a simple cardboard box again. Makes my inner child jealous!
