Of course he would never complain but the last time I cleaned in there, I noticed just how lame it looked and decided to fix it up.
This powder room is attached to our en suite bath so I wanted to keep the theme (monochrome beachy) the same.
I started with a canvas from the dollar store. I marked off 2-inch intervals with a pencil on the back.
Next I took some twine and wound it around the canvas, starting at the back (which I stapled using the staple gun). I wound the twine twice at every 2-inch mark, then did a diagonal on the back side. Here is the back side.
This is what the front looked like after I trimmed most of the scragglies:
I got out my glue gun and a bag of small shells (again the dollar store) and just starting gluing one shell per square.
After each square had a shell, this is what it looked like.
I hung it up. Pretty simple.
I found a clear glass vase and then picked some
This is where I'm partying:
You know I'm going to love anything beachy, but this is a great idea!! I never would of thought using the canvas mat like that! Love it!
Love, love the goldenrod. If I did this for my husband there's a good chance he wouldn't even notice. :o) Hope your hubs liked it! I'm off today. My teachers are at a conference. Going to the dentist (blah) and then the antique mall (yay!)
What, no furry pink Peggy Bundy toilet seat cover?!
It turned out cute...er, I mean, manly.
I really like the way the canvas and vase turned out! I never think of canvas. This would go great in my bathroom. :)
Wow! Those look GREAT!
What a nice little pick me up for your hubs sad bath. Great idea, Terry.
That was perfect, just enough and not to fussy. Simple but very clever! Looks great!
Great ideas! I am always looking for fun things to do with seashells...I feel like we come home with so many every time we go to the beach!
You are so creative! Such a unique way to display the shells! I love it! The goldenrod looks great too!!
Love the canvas idea! I should've done something like this after our summer beach trip, but ended up ditching the shells for lack of a better idea. Next year, however, I'm going to remember this one. Thanks! :)
Great coastal touches! So the goldenrod will just dry out eventually..., awesome!
Oooohhh, LOVE your shell art...so VERY "beachy!"

Well done - simple and beachy is exactly what you have accomplished. I didn't know that goldenrod dries well. I should cut some and give it a try as I love their shape.
