Hacks gone viral – From my kitchen to 2000+ shares on Facebook

One of the most popular “scrap hacks” i’ve posted onto ScrapHacker is the pallet kitchen sofa. While it’s quietly still sitting in a nook of my kitchen, pictures of it, and me making it this summer, have gone viral. A recent share onto a Brazilian DIY Facebook page resulted in the picture being shared an astonishing 1902 times. When I initally shared it onto the ScrapHacker Facebook wall I was happy to score 117 shares, but now, 6 months later, the hack has gone viral, also reaching into many corners of the sprawling Pinterest community. Funny to think that something I made on a sort of experimental whim, ended up affecting lives of others in some sort creativity boosting manner, showing that small means can create a big impact in the social media landscape of our day and age.
