Is it possible to find the original site that a post was made from when using pinterest? So many times I see a furniture redo and would like to know the procedure and it just takes you to another board.

I have generally been able to find them unless it is listed as "uploaded by user".

Do you have a post/board example?

Annie, a post/board example from Pinterest you mean? I guess I don't quite understand what you mean. I am mainly interested in looking at painted finishes for old furniture and every time I click on one, it brings up another board.

I was just asking if there was a specific pic from pinterest that you couldn't find the site. I was going to try and find it.

When that happens I usually google a description of the project, example: "diy blue dresser" and I usually can find several pics and one that will lead me to the actual site. A few times I just couldn't locate it but generally it works!!

That is what I have been doing but have not always had good luck. I will keep trying! Thanks Annie!
