A couple months ago, I discovered Pinterest, a site that allows you to maintain digital bulletin boards of ideas you've come across on the Internet. The site has a social media aspect in that others can follow your boards and you can follow other user's boards - making sharing of great ideas that much easier.
What does Pinterest have to do with a green blog? Sure, there seem to be a huge number of folks using it to plan weddings and remodel their homes but there are also oodles and smoodles of money saving, environmentally happy ideas.
For instance, did you know that if you rub a walnut on a scratched or worn area of wood floor or wood furniture, it instantly looks good as new? Picked that idea up from Pinterest this morning and it totally works!
Looking to organize or swap green cleaning recipes, this is the place.
Have you ever seen a floor tiled with pennies? Scrabble tiles? Wine barrel slats or wine crates? A backplash made of bottle caps?
If you've ever been interested in repurposing or upcycling, you'll love this magical place where everything old is something else new.
Old skateboards are shelves and swings.
Broken chairs hold bath towels and a doll house becomes a shelf in a laundry room.
Bottles are not recycled but reused to hold bracelets, edge a garden, a chicken waterer, or light the night.
And mason jars are EVERYTHING!
If you have not checked out Pinterest, toodle on over. Here's a link to my Upcycled, Repurposed, and Reused board. You do need an invitation to join so ask a friend or leave your email address here and I'll send you one.
Become a pin up girl, do it yourself and never ever throw anything away again!
