Beachy Wall Art

One step closer to a finished Master Bath!




Pinned and Completed! 
I found this gorgeous mantle on Finding Home and absolutely FELL in LOVE with it.  
*Sigh*... isn't it beautiful....?

I pinned it and knew that there had to be a way to incorporate something like this into our Master Bath.  It would bring exactly that touch of beachy coastal feel I wanted without being too kitschy.


Our Master Bath has been {almost} done for several months weeks now.  In my process of procrastinating with the painting of the kitchen cabinets I decided to take an afternoon and get some decor up in our Master Bath.  

I hauled out an old window frame I had picked up from a garage sale for $5.  I added a couple layers of sisal twine and grapevine wire.  From that I hung some sea stars that I had picked up from Michaels, glass mason jar lids and some of my grandmothers shells that she had collected from the Connecticut shore near her home.  I thought it was a great way to display some of her collection.  A glue gun is all it took to hold everything together.  








It's not exactly like my inspiration pin, but I'm pretty happy with the overall look!

  1. Nice use of a salvaged window and great way to display your grandmother's shells. I like the way the drape of your framed bits mirrors the drape of the banner in the window.
