This is a totally fun, kitschy aquarium DIY project that you have to have just the right spot for.
I just happened to have that exact spot in the lower level hallway wall by the kid’s playroom/family room.Here’s a little background to this project… if you want to just skip ahead to the actual project, roll on past this paragraph.
We used to have a cottage in Maine. (Be sure to pop over to Simple Decorating Tips, and see all the posts on the blog relating to the Maine Cottage, and our former 100 year old house reno, and our current renovation!!) We sold that cottage and our last home, a 100 year old house, the same year, and bought a new renovation project to combine and downsize. Having the Maine cottage, I’ve collected some really fun coastal things and wanted to incorporate those fun memory filled items in the lower level of our new house… in the family room which is a total play room for our 6 grandkids. All that being said, the emphasis is on fun, somewhat kitschy, vintage coastal decor. Oh and did I mention that the existing spare bathroom just off the play room has a vintage pink tub I wanted to tie into the space too? So, a little pink and a lot of coastal… moving on with the DIY project:As I was planning and designing the lower level space, way before we even started renovating it, I happened upon this totally fun, charming, and very expensive, wallpaper:
