The theme for the guest room is beachy with a slight touch of nautical. I have to get the SLR camera setup with the wide lens so that I can capture everything in this room. (Please excuse the messy desk off to the side, there are many more art projects in the works)
I repainted these ceramic fish that have been in the family for years, they have gone from pearl white to cerulean blue...to a golden brown (a color that I pulled from the bedspread), these 3 fish add a hint of nautical to the room.
I had to first prime it since it is ceramic, then I used acrylic paint that i mixed to match the color that I wanted.
Drapes: I found the fabric on sale at Joanne's and it was about $17.00. I have sewed in the past so these drapes were fairly easy to make. The key was creating a tall room, by hanging the drapes higher above the window you can easily give it that feel. On another note, I do not have my sewing machine because my mom currently is using it. So there were completely hand sewed!
Supplies Needed: Wood Frames, Sand Paper, Paint, Hot Glue Gun and Shells from the Beach.
These shells we have collected for years together. They have come all over East and West coast of Florida. I really wanted to find a way to display them, some of them are pretty unique, so with our beachy/nautical guest room they fit in just perfect!
Projects left to do in this room: Create a headboard, and finish decorating wall above desk!
