I’ve been meaning to make a set of Coastal Starfish Rope Coasters for a while. They are super easy to make and they’re just right for a coastal tablescape. To make these, you’ll only need a few supplies and a set of four can be made in under thirty minutes plus a little more time for the paint to dry. These are definitely budget friendly, too!
This month, our blogging group is participating in an Upcycle Challenge. I love giving thrift store items makeovers, so this challenge was a fun one. We could spend no more than $20 for the item and the materials needed for the makeover. If you’ve seen any of our thrift store makeovers, you know that $20 is quite a bit more than I spend to get new looks for old items. For the challenge, I’m sharing Sea Shell Shadow Box.
I have fallen in love with Sea Glass Spray Paint! It gives a perfect sea glass look and makes it easy to turn plain glass jars and vases into coastal decor pieces. This Coastal Jar Makeover with Sea Glass Paint took about thirty minutes to complete. Most of that time was just letting the paint dry. I may never toss out another glass jar again!
I love adding red, white, and blue to my summer decor, but I also love finding ways to incorporate our patriotic colors with my coastal decor. As I was planning my breakfast nook summer tablescape, I knew I needed some new coasters. I was lucky to have found a set still in the original box during a recent trip to Goodwill. Priced at $2.00, they came home with me and were given a patriotic makeover. [Read more…]
I enjoy changing up this framed chalkboard seasonally. Most recently, it had a spring time look to it. Now that the weather has warmed up-we’re hitting ninety degrees in Charleston this week- it’s time for a summer chalkboard. Gloria and I both live in flip flops for much of the year, but with this heat, it’s definitely flip flop season! I didn’t use any special chalkboard transfer methods. It’s quicker and easier to just hand letter it. It might not look uniform, but it works for me! I’m all about simple projects and this one delivers on that!
