Last week Stefanie was shopping at one of our favorite stores, HomeGoods, for a few last minute items for her guest house before her mother-in-law arrived. Like she often does, she text me a picture of something I might like.
I have been looking for 4th of July decor with a coastal feel and this was perfect. Unlike every other time, instead of texting her, “Buy it!”, I told her to put it back. I could make this one myself or at least similar. Off to Michaels I went.
I bought the least expensive canvas there and paint colors I knew I would use again. Everything else I already owned.
I used painters tape to help me create the stripes and square. First I painted the red stripes and let it dry. Next the blue square and let it dry. Finally I glued the starfish in the square.
Exactly what I was looking for and it only cost me $11!
Either sit in leaning on your mantel…
Or replace it for another item just for the season…
I think I’m going to leave it right above my entry table.
