Pinned It…But Now What?

If you are anything like me, your Pinterest boards are full of creative ideas that you would love to try, but just haven’t yet.  Yes, I have recipe boards, and boards for crafts with the kids, but the boards that really call to me are the arts and crafts boards, the DIY boards, and the repurpose boards that I know would fill my house will lots of cool pieces and really give it that special touch.  But that is where those ideas have stayed, locked in cyberspace.  So, I present a challenge.  I am challenging myself, but I am challenging you, too.  Before 2015 comes to a close (which is coming quicker than you think), dive back into those ideas that you have pinned, and pick a few to try. Are you up for the challenge?

Once you decide which you are going to tackle, you will need a supply list.  We can help with that!  Which project did you choose?  Was it to finally try to paint that piece of furniture that you don’t want to get rid of because it’s functional, but just doesn’t seem to fit in with your decor?  We have all the supplies you need!  We even offer one-on-one instruction if you’re afraid to go it alone.

Maybe with the holidays approaching, you have decided that this is the time to elevate that dining room table from bleak to chic with a table runner you create from vintage doilies.  Well, we always have quite the selection.  Come gather a few beautiful pieces to connect today, and your table scape will be ready way before your bird is.


Thinking your lighting needs a face-lift?  The ideas that you can create with vintage mason jars are endless.   While some might be a little more complicated than others, they certainly will add some visual appeal to your home.  Even if lighting isn’t your interest, I am certain that you have at least one craft or DIY project that involves Mason jars on your boards, and we have a great selection of vintage jars for your perusal.


Have you started your holiday shopping yet?  What about a DIY holiday?  Vintage music sheets are a must-have craft staple for great projects like this music sheet wreath, which would also make a great gift to hand out to all those hard to shop for relatives this season.  The beautiful sheets are also great for decoupaging, another great thing that is on so many Pinterest top pins.


So what are you waiting for?  Head to your boards and get planning, then come head over and we’ll help you get prepared with all the supplies you need! We have bottles, windows, doors, and supplies galore!  We can’t wait to see what you create.  Maybe I will share some of my creations with you, too.  Come visit us at the Manor House.  We’re open daily for your shopping convenience.  See you soon!
