I LIKE PINTEREST (Guy Used Pinterest Successfully)

Ok, I’ll admit it, I REALLY LIKE PINTEREST AND I am a dude.

I’m also not ashamed to admit that today I have 100% proof that Pinterest has also proven itself as a totally useful website – even for a guy.

Here’s the story:

I was on Pinterest one day searching for cool office space ideas. This search typically results in a fairly mixed-bag of results. Cool start up offices. Lame real-estate spam. Warm home office remodels. It was this last type of result that caught my eye, but it ending up being a pinned image of a nice kitchen remodel. I repinned the pin to my things board because I liked the shade of gray used in the kitchen.

Fast forward about seven weeks. Wife (Sarah) and I are getting some painting done in our house. I remembered pinning that kitchen image / gray color. I went back to Pinterest (it wasn’t the first time I went back in the past seven weeks.), found the pin, and then took the paint color name over to Lowe’s to buy a gallon on paint for my office. (Yes, I bought the paint at Lowe’s, but I still haven’t been back to Chick-fil-a.)

So, full circle:

1. I use and like Pinterest.
2. I pinned an image of a kitchen.
3. I used that pin ~7 weeks later when I wanted to get paint for my home office.
4. I now have a freshly painted gray office thanks to Pinterest.
