Decorating Your Beach Home With Upcycled Finds


I recently moved into a new retail space here on the beaches of NC. I have been very busy making new merchandise to put in the shop and thought I'd share some photos with you. Many of the pieces started off as tired old thrift store finds. For more info on each of the pieces you can find most of them on my website at

I built this coffee table from pine boards and old table legs I had on hand. I gave it a beachy look with some decorative painting.

  • Lisa - wow I had not heard that. But to be honest I mostly listen to Dora or Tom and Jerry in the van when the grandkids are with me. LOL
