Beachy Mantle Piece

Jen from Migonis Home gave her mantle piece a nautical, beachy look with some pebbles and coordinates painted on driftwood with Simplicity!

The kids and I went to Pebble Beach in Rockport a few weeks ago to get rocks for our checkerboard table makeover that you saw a couple weeks ago and we came away with piles and piles of rocks. These rocks are so smooth from years of tumbling in the ocean. I decided to make a simple centerpiece out of an old silverware holder from my gray mirrored buffet. I painted the dark wooden holder Country Chic Paint’s Simplicity to distinguish it from the dark table and did just one coat to give it a weathered look.

I kept out the Simplicity paint and did a little painting on a piece of driftwood AJ and I found last summer. I painted the latitude / longitude coordinates of Manchester by the Sea and then surrounded the display with more rocks the kids and I found. My summer display won’t die any time soon and I can easily add to the look with hydrangeas once they bloom!

To make the design I simply printed out the coordinates in the font and size I wanted and then free-handed them on to the driftwood. The wood was too weathered to trace over the print out like I normally would.

Hope you enjoyed this beachy little project!

The whole gamut. 🙂  And I love makeovers. Every time I see a good one it makes me giddy. Especially one where someone took some risks or had a really great vision.
