Decorating on a Dime! Pinterest Inspired Ideas

Real Estate Agent with Coco, Early & Associates

Even if you are not an agent I'm sure at one time or another we've all watched HGTV ( Home & Garden Television). They say if you love this show you are destined to be an agent, I believe most of the time for this to be true! This time of year when the sun is shining and we are ready to tackle the world I look around me and find little projects here and there that I've been neglecting! (Don't we all!)

I've recently been introducted to Pinterest, what a great social media platform & also an addictive site! For those of us visual board lovers be careful or you might just fall victim to all that is Pinterest! It's got a large range of topics by subject ... i.e. home decor, weddings, vintage style, decorating, organizing, etc etc. and the list goes on. Imagine all your favorite magazines in one area where you can just browse and browse beautiful pictures and ideas to widdle your time away!

When you find pictures or ideas you really love you can re-pin it to your "board inspired themes"; some ideas for your boards might be home decor, things I love, cooking! It then neatly stacks all your favorites in one section on your home page so you can browse ideas for quick access. I've found so many amazing ideas and recipes to try. Again, proceed with caution once you pin you can't stop! If you don't have an account it's very easy to setup just go to http://www.pinterest.com  you can use an email or sign up using Facebook. One word of caution, if you attach your facebook account to your Pinterest be forwarned it will share all your recent activity on your wall for the world or friends to see!

Everyone always has a never-ending to-do list somewhere in their mind on paper of just on a stack of sticky notes buried beneath your other paper stacks that seem to multiply all on their own! If you are looking to spruce up your home or apartment or even your yard to soak up the rays check out some of these great tips & tricks on some of these great websites! The best part of the internet is there is so much useful information for free! I'm looking forward to trying out some of these inexpensive ideas myself to really use up this extra energy I have during these beautiful months ahead!

Here are some of the great websites out there for Designing on a dime & where to shop for those container must haves for Organizing, Enjoy!!

thanks for sharing! 

I wonder if you got any business based strictly on Pinterest posts and pins?
