Pinterest Challenge Highlights

By Kate Riley July 15, 2012

It’s not ‘BOTB’ day, but it should be because there were so so many amazing projects linked up to the Summer Pinterest Challenge earlier this week!  Over 400 bloggers linked up their DIY talents, and I was blown away by all the creativity out there.  I simply couldn’t let the week go by without sharing a few highlights!

Such great projects right?  I’m so impressed and I can’t wait for the Fall Edition !!  Like many of you, I’ll be pinning away and storing up ideas.  Matt and I are finishing up an IKEA hack project today, then then spending a few hours relaxing with friends…  hope you all have the fabulous Sunday!



  1. Kate –
    It is such an honor to be in the list of your highlights.
    I have followed your blog or a long time and find you have so much great content.
    Thank you for dreaming up the “Pinteret Challenge”
    Much appreciation,

  2. Thanks for including my art Kate! All of these projects are amazing…I had already pinned several of these as my favorites too!

  3. Thanks for including my map wall art in your round-up!! So many great projects in the Pinterest Challenge, can’t wait for the next one! Enjoy the rest of your Sunday :)

  4. Yay. I’m tickled pink you deem my project a highlight. :-D
    I was so inspired by everyone else as well, and can’t wait to tackle some of those projects myself. The Pinterest Challenge is an AWESOME idea! Thanks!

  5. Such a talented group! It was so fun to participate, it really got me motivated. I just finished another project from Pinterest that I will be posting about soon…I like the idea of being challenged! I am going to try to challenge myself to do 1-2 projects a month. Think of how many new awesome projects you could have done in a year if you did that!

  6. Yes, there are some amazingly creative talents in blog land! We all feed off of each other’s inspiring work. It’s a chain reaction!

  7. This is really great!! I love re-purposing, too! Just yesterday, I “re-upholstered” a chair using belts! If you have a minute, Check it out at and let me know what you think!

  8. WHEW!! I’m glad it was just a glitch…………I was worried that I’d lost you Kate. Great ideas and wonderful photos as always.
