Pinterest Pick 3

I am so excited to be a part of this month's Pinterest Pick 3! 

I am absolutly in LOVE with some Pinterest. My husband and our neighbor were just talking yesterday about how Pinterest is going to literally kill them with all of the projects we put on them. HeHeHe! I'm going to share 3 of my all time favorite pins for my house and show some after pictures of our completed project.

My laptop's home used to be on our kitchen bar. Not a lovely place. I decided I wanted a desk to store it but not just a simple table top desk. This is what I found:

I knew I would have so much fun decorating something like this so I showed my amazingly talented husband and in one weekend this is what he built me:

The next big idea I found was a bed. We had been using a bed frame that was broken and held together by a board for years. I saw a plan for a bed that looked like this:

And again in one weekend super husband built me this:

The third idea is one that I recently found and have shown my husband and he plans to start on it this summer. We already have a pond with some fish in our backyard. I want a path leading from our screened in porch around the pond to a sitting area in the yard.

I also want a pergola with these poles to hang flowers and lights on around the seating area. Hopefully in a few weeks I'll have an after picture to show of all these plans. 


  1. You are so lucky you have a creative husband! I love the laptop bookshelf area! It's perfect! We are struggling with the same thing right now. Thank you for sharing your ideas and linking up! :)

  2. OMG! You are one lucky girl! Your hubby did an amazing job on both projects. Do you rent him out? I would love to have a nook like that! Love how you decorated it.

  3. Can your husband teach my husband to do that? Actually mine is pretty handy with the table saw. I've gotten a few things out of him over the years! Love it!

  4. I love how you actually turn your pins into reality. lol. I have been wanting a new bed frame forever now and am always showing my hubby the diy ones on pinterest. Tomorrow I am going to show him you post and say "see you can turn pins into something real?". That should make him do it right. ha ha.. I hope so! I love each pin but especially your bed frame.
