Pinterest is all the rage when it comes to home and apartment projects. We at Gables 5th Street Commons wanted to put a DIY Apartment Fun Pinboard together of a few of our favorite DIY apartment ideas
If you are unfamiliar with Pinterest, it is a virtual pinboard, that allows you to take any image from the internet and place it on a categorized pinboard. You can take any image from any website and add it to your collection. Let’s say you search Google for “Decorating Ideas” and you come across a website that has an idea you like, instead of doing it the old school way and bookmarking it, you can download the Pinterest bookmarklet, and add that decorating idea to your “Decorating Ideas” Pinterest board, to come back and view later.
Pinterest is also a great way for brides to plan their weddings. You can search Pinterest for “Wedding ideas on a budget” and you’ll get tons of images that match your search. When you click on an image, it will show you a how-to or where you can purchase what you are looking at.
Do you use Pinterest for other things? Let us know in the comments!

Our office will be closed tomorrow, May 9th, for a company wide event. That event is known as Gables Day and it is one of our favorite times of the year as Gables Associates. Gables Day is a day we get the chance to volunteer and give back to the community. This year, we will be volunteering at Posada Esperanza, which is an organization that was created in 2003 in order to create a program that could serve the needs of homeless families. We will be painting, updating and installing new landscape in three houses. Tomorrow can’t come soon enough!
