I love the beach. I love digging my toes into the sand, splashing in the waves, hunting seashells with my kids, chasing seagulls… I love the sound of the ocean and could listen to waves crashing for hours. Reality check: I live in land locked Utah. *sigh* To make up for lack of proximity to my favorite vacation destination I have been adding some beach-themed decor to my house so I can enjoy it every day. A girl can dream, right?
I am still working on the paint job in our main floor half bath, so I’ll have to reveal the whole makeover soon, but here is the first element.
I took a simple square glass vase, wrapped some sheer fabric around it and secured it with hot glue. Then I wrapped twine around it, using a dab of hot glue on the backside of the vase after every wrap to hold it in place, and tied a simple knot to finish it off.
I found these branches and they reminded me so much of the twigs and grasses that grow in the salty ocean air… no wonder, because they are called Salt Cedar! A couple of bunches (5 to be exact) of those placed in the vase=perfect!
Can’t wait to show you the whole bathroom makeover!
