I Saw, I Pinned, I Conquered

While this doesn’t really have anything to do with clean eating, I thought it would be fun to do a series of posts that show stuff I pinned on Pinterest that I actually do and that saves some money (saving green!). When pinning, we have so many good intentions, but unfortunately, most of the time they don’t pan out.

So, I want to show you some of the Pinterest projects I’ve done that have saved me time, money or a little bit of both. 

The first is a wall of clocks for a home office. I loved this idea for Matt’s home office and so I bought three very inexpensive clocks (check out Lowes, Hobby Lobby and Wal-Mart or scour local garage sales) and scattered them on the wall with maps of the three states were we’ve lived since we’ve been married. The maps came from an old atlas my parents had laying around and the frames are from old barn wood we had extra of from a different project. I added some old suitcases and old set of drawers as side tables.

We had a bunch of old license plates from all the states were we’ve lived as a married couple and growing up and so I took them and attached them to a piece of lightweight MDF with wood glue. My hubby added on brackets on the back to hang it up and voila, a fun look at all the states my husband and I have lived in. 

What Pinterest projects have you followed up on??
