Pin #1 - Washi Tape Rainbow Table Makeover: I saw a pin for 25 IKEA Hacks that immediately sucked me in. One of the items on that list was a Rainbow Side Table. She had taken the IKEA LACK Side Table and covered it with washi tape. When I saw this, I might have squealed a little in delight. Because just the weekend before? We had made a trip to IKEA and I picked up one of those tables for MB's room. If I were to make up a word for something like this, I'd call it craftendipity. But I won't. Because that's just dorky. Anyway, I wasn't in love with the table, but we needed something for in there, and at $7.99? You just can't beat it.
So all I lacked (no pun intended) was the washi tape. Anyone that knows me knows that when I want to craft something, I want to do it RIGHT.THEN. As luck would have it, I saw on her post where someone else had picked up tape very similar to washi tape at Target. So off to Target I went. I picked up a package of the Kid Made Modern tape in the kid's craft section for around $7. I also wanted some navy on the table to match her room colors, so I picked up a roll of this paper tape (also similar to washi tape) they have in their office supply section. I then rushed home so I could....let it sit until yesterday. Yep, I totally procrastinated on this project. My crafting time lately is typically interrupted by tending to my little bosses, working on design orders, or let's face it - pure exhaustion. But the good news is, this project was super simple and quick to do once I actually started on it!Not that I'd know. I did not wrap the tape around the edges like she did because certain little fingers in my house would be all over trying to pull that up. I also went to Lowe's and had them cut a piece of plexiglass to put on top of the table. It was about $14, and there was extra besides this so now I have plexiglass
Tumblr about Small Rooms. Talk about a less than 5 minute project! I just picked up a package of shower curtain rings at Target for a little over $1. Then I snapped them onto a hanger, and hung my scarves from the rings. Now it's so much easier to see all my scarves! I may or may not have to do 4 more hangers to get all my scarves like this. I'm a bit of a scarf hoarder.

Pin #3 - Best Broccoli of Your Life: Stephanie posted about this in last month's link party, and I knew I needed to try it as we're always looking for ways to get our veggies in. And WOW - it's a must! Even Manny loved it. Patrick did too and has requested it several times since. I made a few adjustments to the original recipe. And by adjustments, I mean cutting corners to try to make it a little bit simpler. I didn't actually zest a lemon over it; just squeezed some lemon juice on it. I also didn't include any pine nuts or basil in it. You can find the recipe here.
So that wraps it up for the second edition of The Proof is in the Pin! I hope you'll join me in this challenge to be a more productive pinner. If you shared any Pinterest projects you've done lately, please grab the button and link up below. Happy Tuesday! :)
