Most of my friends are Pinterest users too. Some of them are even pinning machines like me. I've found, though, that much of the Pinterest Nation seems to be comprised of pinners rather than doers. I see lots of people's inspirational pins, but never their finished projects. So today I'd like to buck that trend by sharing one of my own Pinterest-inspired projects.
If you've spent any time on Pinterest in the past few months, you've probably seen this vignette or something very similar.

Last week we had a client who needed us to do key-area staging in a vacant home. The kitchen was fairly monochromatic and petite. It needed compact punches of color to grab buyers' attention. It was also imperative that we contain accessories in just a few groups to create spaciousness in the galley kitchen.

If you're starting to feel as though you're hopelessly lost in the land of pinners instead of doers, start with something easy like an accessories vignette. It literally took just five minutes to gather accessories and arrange them on a tray, but the sense of accomplishment gained from completing the project is immeasurable. That sense of accomplishment will also carry you onto the next bigger project on your inspiration list.
So now's the time, y'all. Go find yourself an inspiration photo and make it a reality in your home today!
