5 Home DIY ideas from Pinterest

Pinterest is one of those new, shiny social media channels that everyone is telling you to get on, RIGHT NOW, but then if you're like many of us, you click on and after a few seconds feelings of overwhelming sadness come over you. What is going on here? It feels like a foreign land, with strange rules, and what's the point anyway? I have better things to do with my time. At least, that's how I felt at first.

But if you can get over that inital shock, you'll find that it's a fun place to share creative ideas. It's equally a great place to get DIY ideas for your home. Without further ado, here are some home DIY ideas from know, just in case you need some more items on your Honey Do list.

1. Add Storage

Purchase some pencil organizers from The Dollar Tree and screw them into your pantry for extra storage. Simple, cheap, and effective!

2. Update doorknobs

Spraypaint your outdated doorknobs with 2 light coats of high-quality spray paint (be sure to pick one that's made for metal). Let them dry at least 24 hours before putting them back on the door. It's a cheap(er) alternative to purchasing all new knobs.
