So of course since I'm a big ol' joiner I'm on pinterest. I had been avoiding it because I didn't want to become obsessed. The more I think about it though, it's really perfect for me. I'm big on favorites links and this is just another way of organizing it but visually - you know, with pictures! It's also easier to view than a list of links.
The only problem I've discovered is that you can't put your boards into other boards. I really like to have things very organized on my computer so normally I'd have a folder titled Travel with my various travel plans inside, but you can't do that on pintrest so instead I have boards titled Travel-Montana Summer 2013, Travel-New York Summer 2014, and so on.
Anyways, the whole reason I'm making this post is that I tried to pin something the other day and it wouldn't let me because it said the pin was linked to spam or some such thing. I figured I'd just save the picture to my computer and then pin it from there but then realized I couldn't do that, I also can't pin from facebook which is where I would normally put a picture. Then my "aha!" lightbulb went off and I remembered I could put the picture on my blog.
Okay, that took awhile to figure out but I've got it up now. Anyways, I love these in wall storage ideas. I was thinking that one this size would be perfect in a hallway for linen storage. We lived in my grandparents home for a year and there was very little storage space. Something like this in the hallway would've been super great for linen storage. Oooh, I just had an idea! This would be awesome in a family room for game storage! It would work really well at my mom's house on the wall that adjoins the garage. It would be a little different because it would extend into the garage but it would be nice unobtrusive storage.
