Hello guys! With summer weather finally here and trips to the beach being on my brain I wanted to bring even MORE of the beach into our home. You see, some people don’t consider the Great Lakes to be “real” beaches. I am here to say that we have sand, we have waves, we have fishing, we have driftwood & if you go to the right areas we even have small shells and you can find sea glass. If you know me, you know that I love the beach.
Every common area of our home is decorated with beach decor as well. Lake Michigan being about 20 minutes away is a place that I go to find peace and solitude. When I have a bad day or need to just think I will sometines just go and to the beach and go for a walk. Whaty is nice is that there are so many places to chose from. I can go to a beach with large rocks, or with a pier or sand or gravel or te dunes. So with just just a simple 20 minute drive I can go to many different types of beaches and any which way to fit my mood or my outfit.
Well, now onto how I took these plain ole ugly shower curtain hooks and transformed them into something a little beachier by simply covering them in twine!
First I took them and sanded them to rough the surface up.
Then applied the glue. I chose a product called quick grip. The reason is that it is permanent adhesive but it is also clear and water proof which is perfect for the bathroom.
After applying the glue, I took twine and started at the top wrapping it around. Stopping about halfway.
Once that sat for about a minute, I continued to the end, again leaving it open to sit for about a minute.
Then I applied the glue at the end and continued to wrap around and held it in place with my scissors for about 30 seconds so that it was secured in place.
I left the end there. I let them dry for about 15 minutes each.
Once they were dry, I trimmed the end piece off and the stray strings off.
I did it 11 more times. Which took about 2 hours in total.
And brought another pretty beach decor element into my home. Funny thing. Some people have asked me where I bought the fabric starfish shower curtain. I got this from Amazon. Click Here.
Making me feel happy every morning when I get up and get ready for work!
I hope you have a safe and Happy 4th of July and remember to decorate your home to make you happy!
