DIY Driftwood Art - DIY Home Decor Ideas

I needed some beach inspired artwork to finish off my dining room makeover but having no money left over in the budget, I had to get creative! Looking around the apartment for something to use, I found this piece of plywood leftover from a project which was the perfect size, but what to put on it? After looking on Pinterest for some inspiration, I found my answer: Driftwood! It's free and it meant a trip to the beach which I love. So I headed to the shore and after exploring a few beaches, I had my driftwood to get started!
First I arranged my driftwood in a pattern I liked on a piece of plywood I had leftover from another project.
I sanded down the back of the driftwood to give a larger surface to glue. To make sanding easier, I stapled a piece of sand paper to a scrap piece of wood.
Then I used liquid nails to glue the driftwood to the plywood. That's it - very easy!
I love the way it looks in my dining room - it was the perfect complement to the grass cloth on the wall panels I made and it gives me the beachy vibe I wanted.
