Pinterest Challenge # 4 - Round Up

Did you love this round of the pinterest challenge as much as I did?! Seriously, there are so many clever people out there!

Like I did last time and the time before that I'm posting a round-up of my favourite projects from the challenge. Prepare to be inspired!

Jami from What the Graham created this gorgeous (and huge!) piece of string art. She almost didn't make it because she felt like string art projects had been done to death. I'm so glad she did make it, it's given me the renewed inspiration to give this a go myself.

In my last round-up I featured Rebecca's gift wrap station and she's done it again this time around with a gorgeous alphabet print for her son's room. I absolutely love it, and I think it's also given me some inspiration for the colours in baby number two's room. I'm really liking the green and navy together. Go and check it out at 'the lil house that could'!

This amazing light fixture from Love and Renovations goes in the 'completely out of my league' basket. It is so amazingly good! Read through Amanda's post and you will see just how much work went into creating this gorgeous statement piece.

Number four on my list is another piece of string art, I must have a thing for these! I love how versatile the medium is, you can make just about anything. Mallory used a genius technique for making hers, go find out more over at 'our first nest'.

Cindy from Made to Style is another blogger that I featured last time round too. I pinned her DIY roman blinds and they have been repinned so many times! Her latest project is a mirror made from toilet paper rolls. To be honest I'm always a bit skeptical about projects using tp rolls, but then I see something like this and am blown away!

I am competely in love with this bath shelf from Kristin at My Uncommon Slice of Suburbia. It is gorgeous!! I think it would look perfect in my bathroom and it's now definitely on my to-do list.

Ok, I hope you're sitting down for this one... Brooke from Killer b saw an adorable scooter online and then made one from scratch for her gorgeous little girl. No plans, she just winged it. How clever is that!! She's since teamed up with Ana White and put together plans for it so that the rest of us can have a go at making one too.

I am a sucker for homemade art and I love making things with Max, so these kids watercolours from Kate at Chic on a Shoestring are right up my alley. My favourite is the 'you are my sunshine' one, Max and I will be making a similar one very soon!

I love this pallet art that Natalie from Handmade Mayhem created. To get the full effect of this project you need to go and see what the timber looked like before she started. An awesome transformation!!

Last but not least we have this little drawing of a bird by my clever (and obviously very funny) sister Jenny. She drew it and instragrammed it last night with this caption 'Consider yourself pwned @tamsyn_riley!! Your teepee is no match for my arrow bird of brilliance!! :o)'.  Cute!! (In case you haven't already seen it, you can check out the tee-pee I made here.)

I hope you liked seeing all of these great projects as much as I did. Do you have a favourite project that you want to share?
