One thing I realized though, is I pin dozens of things a day, but I never go back and look at them, and really, at that point? What is the point?
So I committed myself to doing some of the projects, recipes, and classroom things. (Pinterest is an EXCELLENT teaching tool, trust me)
The first thing I tackled comes from this pin, which I've seen pinned all over the place. (Original Source)
I love(d) my coffee table in my living room. It was my accent color, and provided a wonderful yellow that was cheery and soothing at the same time.
So the faux sofa table pin was high on my list. Because we still needed a place to put things and our living room is small. (Our house is over 60 years old, every room seems small)

We brought the wood home, and one summer day, 8 months pregnant, I crawled around on the floor and built my own sofa table.
From the other side.
From the front. Complete with the ever-present Yoshi. The color is off in this photo because it is without flash, oh well. I never claimed to be a photographer.
It's wonderful. Our living room is open and C and I can do tummy time on the floor, and the swing fits in the living room (which is a necessity) and the dogs can't destroy things. It also has the added bonus of keeping things off the floor out of Yoshi's reach. Remotes have a much longer life span now.
