I’ve been heavily into decorating lately, so I wanted to make something my beach-y obsessed roommate could use in her room. I saw this wooden frame at the craft store and it was pretty much a (very easy) no-brainer!
To make this, tape off stripes on the frame using painters tape (because really, what screams nautical more than stripes?!). Keeping with the theme, I chose navy and white paint, and slapped them on the frame, alternating the stripes.
Once dried, remove the tape. To accent the frame (and cover up the little ‘oops’ you see on the righthand corner), I spray painted a few shells I picked up at the beach last summer gold, and glued them to the corner. Plop in a favorite beach-y picture (I chose one of Avalon, a favorite summer spot for our group of friends!) and there you have it: nautical-themed decor!
p.s. Thank you all so much for your sweet comments about our apartment yesterday. It was so fun to decorate, and hearing that you liked it made it even more special. If you asked a question about where we got something, hang tight–I’m hoping to answer them all at some point today! xo
