Bring on the New Year with a Pinterest Partayy!

Happy New Year!

My friend Jami over at What the Graham and some other awesome lady bloggers (Design Build LoveHernando HouseMerrypadMrs Priss, and The Stucco Bungalow) are challenging ourselves (and you!) to a new project for the New Year. If you haven’t been spending all of your days over on Pinterest, what rock have you been hiding under? In all seriousness, it is  2012 and we all have things in our lives we want to improve. Pinterest is a great resource to find new crafts, home improvement ideas, motivational quotes, hair styles, you name it- it’s on good ol’ Pinterest.

If you poke around my boards on Pinterest you’ll see all of the things I’ve “pinned.” The project BC Man and I are going to take on is a faux mudroom. Faux because it’s not going to be its own mudroom like you’d find in an old New England farmhouse, but it’s going to be in our garage. We want a place to sit and take off our winter boots and coats without cluttering up our entryway. We also want to do it without spending a million bucks so we are going to do it ourselves thanks to the “hacks” on Pinterest!

Here’s an example of what I’m thinking about:
