Amazingly enough, we had a heat wave last week where the temps reached near 50 degrees. Sigh. This week is back to teens and twenties. So, how to deal with the winter blahs that are causing you to long for the beach? Make some beach ambiance come to you by creating your own beach decor.
I found this oak coffee table / entertainment stand that was in need of some superficial love.
Looking better already and it’s only been sanded.
The sunbleached stain we used on our master bedroom floors (head to blog post here
) got me hooked and I decided to give a beachy feel to this piece.
Here it is, all gussied up and ready for some waves. It has sold from my shop
, but there is always more goodness on the way.
This project didn’t quite quench the need for sand between my toes, so I took it up another level.
Remember my free vintage Morris rocker
? I know several of you told me to repair it and make it come back to life, but it was badly damaged and would have taken a lot of reconstruction to get it going. So…it was time to make use of the parts.
During Christmas, I put the springs to use:
This time it was the arms turn. With a little bit of sanding and some added dimension…
…those arms turned into this. A whale of a sign, don’t you think?
These have sold from my shop
, but there’s always more goodness to be found. Check it out!
Question is what I’ll do with the rest of the rocker. Become a follower to see!
What would you do with the back, spindles, rockers, and base?
Here’s more repurposed goodness for you:
