Pinspiration Monday: Good to know

Everybody loves a good “AHA!” moment. And thank God for Pinterest, with its millions of oh-so-simple, why-didn’t-I-think-of-that tips every day. My “Good to know” board is CHOLK-FULL of useful information that I know will come in handy when I’m suddenly in a pinch – Maybe I need to know how to break in new shoes in less than the standard 2 to 3 blister-enducing wears, or I’d like to know how to update ugly tile with paint instead of demo. Or MAYBE I’m simply curious about the best design books to grab for my collection.

Well today, I’ve compiled my top ten most valued “Good to know” pins – For the full run down on how-tos, be sure to click the source links below each image. And for the whole shebang of pins, click over to my complete board here.
