There are several and I think you'll find that they are quite simple, quick and budget friendly as most of the items are either thrifted or from the Dollar store.
First up are some simple projects I did with glass ware from the Dollar Tree. I used clear glass vases, bowls, and candle holders and painted them with a mix of mod podge and craft paint to create "faux" sea glass.
Just add a nice raffia place mat from Good Will and a few shells and you have a wonderful beach inspired vignette.
With these Dollar Tree vases I just wrapped them with some rope also from the Dollar Tree. Place them in a nice little round basket along with some shells and you have brought a bit of the beach into your family room.
Next I did a couple of cute projects using shims. Shims can be found at your local hardware store and are used in construction. I just used a little craft paint and some shells to create this piece.
Then I simply painted a thrifted boat oar to match our colors and stood it up in a corner.
Then last but not least is the reverse stenciled beach table that "T" built for our beach inspired patio. A very simple little table that adds some real whimsy to the area.If you are unable to build a little table these can be found in thrift stores quite readily.
What have you been up to during this hot spell - staying in, vacationing, or working on projects? Would love to hear all about it in the comments below.
Until next time have fun creating something you love.
I will be linking up to the parties listed on the Where I Party page. please go and visit them you'll find lots of inspiration and creativeness at each one.
