pinterestingly enough, that was a fail

have you ever seen something on pinterest that was advertise as being "super easy to make" or "diy in under five"? if yes, then i feel ya. if not, what pinterest are you using? today, i stumbled across this super hilarious blog called pintester. basically she tries out all the popular repins, and sees how easy they actually are. most of them end up being a complete fail, and she tells you how easy hard these projects actually are. my mom and i have a website together called popcosmo so i get to see first hand how much trouble goes through taking the perfect picture! Sonja does a hilariously great job of showing the "behind the scenes" look at what it takes to get your project to the point of taking pictures! 

these are some of my favorite testers..

not only is this blog hilarious, but it reminds you why you never seem to do projects off of pinterest. 
it also inspires me to do a post on my pinterest fails.
i'm sure there could be tons of those.

have you had a pinterest fail?

thanks for reading! 


  1. Have you seen the pin where they put the glue lid on the craft paint to paint letters? I tried that hoping for good results and it was just like messy puff paint! I'm sure there are so many more of these and maybe they'll save others some time! Ha.

    1. hahahah i haven't seen it, but i'm glad i now know not to bother trying it;)

  2. i just discovered her blog and it is hysterical!! another funny one is pinterestyouaredrunk.com

  3. This is why I never actually do anything I pin to DIY. I love all this pinterest fail blogs!
