I had been collecting little things for months. I wanted a vintage beach guestroom. I did all of the art myself, except one piece. I thrifted all of the furniture and restained or painted it . It was tons of fun. and all for less than 80 bucks:}
This is a desk I found at goodwill. I mixed up my own chalk paint color and added drawer pulls. The mirror I found yesterday, and painted it to match the headboard. Oh, Hydranges drying. now!
The vintage looking bedding was my granddaughters at one time. Still in great shape! The bed was free, as was the headboard. I painted it in a glossy pearl white.
The little footstool was repainted and I put a different fabric on it. The tray on top I did in may.
This is an old glass gallon milk jug, I put sea glass and shells, and bought a lamp kit. The shade was free.
I used two vintage atlas jars put shells in them as well as sea glass, used a 1/2 shell to sit a candle on.
The pillow in the center I made from canvas drop cloth and added a Graphics Fairy graphic using the chartpack blender pen transfer.
I love the little mermaid girl, from the graphics fairy. I printed her on canvas and put her in a thrifted frame.
heres the chair I did last week. Same method I used on the pillow, graphics fairy graphic, used to slice it into 4 pieces, had it printed using toner, and used my chartpack blender pen to transfer the image.
This is something my mom did ages ago. I thought it fit just right!
One of two online graphics I printed onto canvas with my inkjet and framed.These are 11x9"
The second online graphic, same as the first I printed them onto canvas with my inkjet.

    Have you thought of spray painting your fan blades? A satin white would brighten up the fixture.
