Pinterest made me do it and I'm glad I didn't remember

This post is brought to you by 1 1/2 hours of sleep (sorry for typos)

So, everybody knows Pinterest is HIGHLY addictive. But actually doing anything you see and swear you're going to do ohmygoshrightthisminutenow ? Not so much!

Well in order to justify my addiction I made something (yes you can gasp!) but apparently I got


Slightly combined because I ended up with this:

And I LOVE it. The back story goes like this. The bathroom is small (not surprising the house is small). I hate clutter! I also hate scrounging around without glasses in the morning looking for what I need to brush my teeth (oh yeah and shave my legs) so I needed something that would make the sink stay clean and hold what I needed without being too much.
Of course I headed to Pinterest!
Saw a few things.
Pinned them.
Forgot about them.
Went to ac Moore.
Remembered them.
Bought what I thought I needed.
Made what I thought it was.
Loved it!
Went to show you all.
Realized I'm an idiot who can NOT follow direction to save her soul!
Posted anyway!

PS - my super easy way?
2 - 6" terra cotta bases
2 - 4" terra cotta pots
1 - can left over metallic paint from painting the faucet
1 - bit of leftover Elmer's glue

Glue pots to bases let dry for 2 days (make sure they're REALLY dry) paint from each angle. Let dry 12 hours put to use! Collect compliments!

do you Pinterest? Do you actually DO the stuff you pin?

Side note: happy birthday mom! Love you! Miss you!

Second side note: I have this "rule" if I don't use it, I don't keep it... So today's picture is courtesy of hipstamatic the app that made me HAVE TO get an iPhone and hasn't seen the light of day in months (thank you Instagram)

I go through phases of liking pinterest and then I forget about it. My goal though is to be more proactive with my pinteresting and have it be a bigger part of my blog/online world.
