Put A Pin In It!

Turn Plain Into Perfect! Put A Pin In It!

Posted: Updated:

HGTV hostess and winner of HGTV's "Design Star", Meg Caswell stopped by Good Day LA to "Put a Pin in It" with me. Turns out she loves Pinterest and DIYing maybe more than I do (maybe!!). Her enthusiasm is contagious and she brought some really great projects for us to try...

Today, we took a plain carpet and with a little paint turned it into a trendy chevron style rug straight out of a home decor magazine!

Then, we made custom glasses and vases with help from rubber bands and spray paint! Oh how I love my spray paint!

And to top it all off an adorable terrarium that's super easy to make and even easier to maintain. Perfect for those of us with a less than green thumb!

If you give any of these a try, I'd love to see the pics!

Got a cool idea, or interesting things found on Pinterest? E-mail me at heymariapinit@gmail.com

Happy Pinning!
