I was sitting innocently watching a TV show when suddenly the hubby popped around the corner (he had been downstairs watching a football game) and said:
Hubby: “You have to start planning out the kitchen you want!!”
Hubby: “I want to move the wall soon and we’ll have to pick up some filler tile until we actually do the kitchen” (he wants to do a bunch of prep work first before the BIG RENO–which is still at least a year out).
Me: “Umm, ok” 🙂 hehe my FUN FUN FUN!!!
2 minutes later I’m on Pinterest (best thing EVVVaaaa!!) showing him a bunch of ideas I’d already pinned based on a fab Style at Home IKEA kitchen. While neither this amount of cabinetry nor the bicycle hanging from the ceiling would work in our space, I loved the vibe.
After looking at a million photos, hubby wanted to see it all together because unfortunately for him, he can’t see “the vision” I have in my head. In there… *gazes inward* …well….the finished kitchen looks AahMazinG!! woot woot!
Soooo….I start a search of websites I could utilize to build a board of ideas so he could see the direction I wanted to go.
- must be able to upload photos from my computer (I found some that you could only use from their gallery/sources 😦 What’s the point of that?!)
- able to import pins from Pinterest (the ultimate in my mind!)
- ability to layer photos
- easy to use
I new what I wanted had to be out there. I had seen beautifully laid out mood boards that others had created…..I wanted that too! But where was it?
After a bit of Google, I came across Sampleboard and the fun began!
