Using Pinterest to Help Design Your Home

Most of my inspiration for designing our house has been found on other blogs and from Pinterest. To help keep organized, I add a new board for each room that we want to do. It’s helped keep our plans organized instead of going back and forth between different ideas.

Below is our current list of plans we have for around the house. It will be interesting to see how these changes look in our home.


Living Room/Entry

  • Paint walls
  • Clean, sand and paint trim. We love how white trim makes the room look and feel. Planning on doing this to the entire house.
  • Paint doors black and add glass door handles. Planning on doing this to the entire house.
  • Add shelves and pictures (love these picture collages).
  • Hang drapes
