DIY Driftwood

When I think of rustic beach decor, I immediately think driftwood. Now, if you don’t live near a beach, getting driftwood can be a bit tricky. However, you can actually make your own! This is a great tutorial on how to do it.

How elegant is the starburst mirror? Its popularity started in the mid-century modern era, but we keep remixing it in new ways. Here we go again with the driftwood! I’d want to leave this up year-round.

If the starburst mirror isn’t quite your style or you want a long mirror instead, try this Whitewashed Coastal Pallet Mirror. It uses a pallet, and a mirror, and had a cost of about $10.00. Can’t beat that! You can also line the edges of the mirror with some rope for a more rustic feel.

If you haven’t seen my new summer sign collection, you’ll be pleased with the beach theme! I’ve chosen some of my favorite things about the beach to create the collection, including this anchor sign, which you can get in your preferred color.

Fishnet-Wrapped Mason Jars

I’ve written about some of my favorite uses for the ever-popular Mason Jar, but this project features a beach-y twist. If you aren’t thrilled with the idea of filling jars with sands, this is a cool alternative. You can use this with clear or blue jars.

Create Beach-Themed Vignettes

For a little rustic beach decorative touch in your home, you can create vignettes using common beach items. Start with a wooden tray or a blue or silver tray on your coffee table, or simply place your vignette your fireplace mantle or shelf. Try adding a coral or a starfish, followed by some of your favorite beachy reads.

Use Natural Fibers

Natural fibers such as jute and seagrass add a great rustic beach effect to your home, and also provide a new texture.

I think that the beach look is one that is timeless, and with a little creativity, you can make any part of your home look like a comfortable beach retreat. I wish you the best of luck in your crafting and decorating!
