Weekly Pinterest Challenge Links

Like any other self-respecting Type-A female, I have jumped right on that band wagon called Pinterest. With 18 boards (and counting) of categorized obsessions like our wedding, food and of course, DIY projects, Pinterest has become my go-to source for inspiration and motivation to whip our home and beyond into shape.

To keep myself moving forward with the pins rather than letting them sit dormant, I have challenged myself each week to recreate, re-imagine or reinvent one of my thousands of pins. For real-time rehashes of said projects, check the blog each Monday morning at the usual time (10 a.m. if you’re new to DGD) for my “Weekly Pinterest Challenge” feature – But if you are just catching up, or if you want to look back on an old project, I’ve compiled a running list below organized by board. Or feel free to scroll through all of them by clicking here.

I can’t take credit for the ideas, but it is so much fun to see my own interpretations come to life. I hope you enjoy and are able to glean some kind of pinspiration of your own!
