The saltwater in my veins always draws me to nautical decor.
(here they are, in the right corner in my new booth)
I sanded the paddle, painted it white, taped off a few stripes on it and cut a number five from my Silhouette Cameo out of sticky vinyl to use as a template.
Then I painted it red, waited for it to dry and peeled off the tape and the vinyl #5.
I distressed it and hand rubbed an antiquing finish on it.
Here it is in my booth.
This is all making me want to get to the beach.
I love summer, the warmer temps, the ocean and I especially love the red, white and blue!
Here is an outside view looking into my window booth.
The red pedestal bowls in the window were thrift store makeovers too.
I worked on them while I was painting the #5 paddle.
This square one started out as a nut bowl that I removed the nutcracker holder from
and attached the bowl portion to a candle holder.
Both pedestals were sanded, painted, distressed and oiled with a protective finish.
I added a white pillar candle and rusty star garland to the square one.
Do you have summer plans to go to the beach
or are you more of a cooler temp, woodsy, mountain kindof person?
Either way, I hope you enjoy your summer!
'til next time,
