How to Use Pinterest for Your Next Design Project

You may have noticed the many, MANY references we use to Pinterest lately. And you may even be wondering, what is all the fuss? Well… we LOVE using Pinterest for our design inspiration. Any time we are looking for an idea to get our minds turning, we know we can count on Pinterest to get us started!

Just in case you’re not actively using Pinterest for your design needs, here is a brief low down and tutorial:

What is Pinterest?

Pinterest is a website where you can find, save, organize and share the things you love!

Go There:

Go to www.Pinterest.com. If you are not already a member, please let us know by leaving a comment below! We would be happy to send you an invite.


Connect with People You Know

The easiest way to do this is to login to your Pinterest account via Facebook.  If you’re not a member of Facebook you can search for your friends via email address.

If you are already a member, please let us know!  Comment on this post with your Pinterest handle (ours is https://pinterest.com/pdbfinecab/) and we will follow your pins.

Start Pinning:

It’s easy!  Start a few pinboards using fun categories like, “Redecorate Your Home”, “Gluten Free Recipes”, or “Planning a Wedding”.  Whatever interests you, start a board for it!  Here are a few of ours:

It’s fun, easy, and oh so addicting!  So, be sure to set your timer or you may wind up with a dozen or more boards full of pins all in the same sitting!

To get you started, here are a couple pins we found this evening of gorgeous, mouth-watering pantries that have us drooling!

    I am new to your group and am LOVING reading all your ideas, I would like to know, I use Pinterest, and love pinning on my boards there, I will start to share,as I have quite a few great boards already up,
    BUT, I do not know how to pin a pic from the internet, or from my personal pics to the Pinterest site, Could you please provide me with step by step instructions as to how to do this,as I do not want to be limited to just what is already available on Pint. I would greatly appreciate it, and will be excited to show your wonderful group all my pics! Thank you so much! Melody Asher

      Great question, Melody!

      When you’re logged in to Pinterest, go to the very top right corner and hover where it says “About” and then click on “Help” from the menu that drops down. On the help page, look on the far left, and you’ll see a link to “Goodies”. Click that.

      The first option on that page tells you about the “Pin It” button. You can download this and it becomes part of your browser’s bookmarks. So, no matter where you go online, you can click the “Pin It” link to Pin the items you see.
