Life's a Beach

I have been busy these past two weekends painting the paneling in my basement. I can't wait to show you all! Unfortunately, that has left me very little time in the creative department. This project I completed a short time ago for the guest bedroom.

I took an old doorway curtain (you know those beaded curains that hang in the doorway itself, popular in the 60s, except this one wasn't from the 60s, it was from my high school graduation trip) made of tiny seashells and cut the wires, taking it apart. I then placed the seashells in two footed glass containers I purchased at the Goodwill. I added some other beach appropriate decor that I had lying around and WHA-LAH! Beach themed decor for my guest room. Never mind that I live more than a few hours away from the closest beach :)

Here she is in her sad before state. Can you believe I ever hung that in my room?!?

And here is my more grown-up beach decor.

Much improved. I still have TONS of shells left. I'm thinking of making a wreath but the idea of gluing all those teeny tiny seashells gives me a headache just thinking about it!
