Three Favorites Thursday--Pinterest Ideas I have tried

A person could spend all day on Pinterest finding ideas and pinning them with the intentions to do them later.  I haven't had a chance to do many projects or recipes that I have pinned yet, but here are 3 ideas that I found on Pinterest and I tried.

This pin is actually focusing on the night stand.  I however, focused on the bedspread that you can barely see and decided I NEEDED to have it.  I just switched to a Queen sized bed, made a new headboard, and needed a bedspread for the bed.  After posting this picture on Facebook, my friend, Theresa, identified the bedspread and where to find it. My mom grabbed it for me at Target on clearance.  YAY!

Here is my version. It is still at my parents' house so I can't show it on my bed yet.

The caption for this one says "Take one of your ring clips and turn it around the corner so that it’s hanging on the bracket rather than the rod. Then run the rest of your clips on the rod like normal."

Can I just say this is one of the best tips I found on Pinterest?!?!  Before seeing this I had a huge gap and a person could see into my kitchen from my living room window, especially at night.  It always bothered me.  This tip totally fixed my problem. Here is my version

This last one I wouldn't necessarily call a favorite tip.  The caption says "LESS Than $1 - DIY Wreath form!! Visit the plumbing dept at your nearest Hardware store - grab a six foot long piece of foam tubing for $.97!!"   Great idea, right!?! 

So I went to Home Depot and I bought the $.97 piece of foam tubing. I was so excited.  I made this wreath The problem is that the foam tubing isn't sturdy enough and doesn't want to keep its shape.  It might look okay in the picture right after I fixed it, but now it is more like an oval shaped wreath.  Still cute, just not what I was looking for.  Maybe there is a way to secure the tubing better so it would keep its shape?

I'm a pinning blogger as well, and love the ideas I've found. Kudos for actually doing some of the things you've pinned! I've tried a few myself, but not nearly as many as I'd like. Thank you for the inspiration.
