A Few More Nautical Touches

by - May 01, 2013

My beachy porch theme is slowly coming together.  I'm just waiting on a few more items and then I'm pretty confident I've reached my $100 budget.  Here a few new pieces that I added yesterday.

I originally had my starfish tucked in a little bucket with starfish decals.  Didn't completely love it, so I added them to this urn instead which I'm loving much better now.  It got a coat of paint to match the lanterns I did a few weeks ago.  The urn was a Goodwill find.
I used this great anchor image from The Graphics Fairy for this twice upcycled watering can.  It had some funky 70s design on it originally.  Then I painted it pink and the other day I paint it white.  So much better now.  I added the anchor using waterslide decal paper.
I gave this little clipboard a chalk paint makeover.  I originally had it in the kitchen.
Last up is this little starfish tea towel.  I used a Dollar Store flour sack and some transfer paper.

My Dad is bringing the whale over today and I can't wait to see it!  I also have to add my little anchor plaques that my sister, Kathy sent.  And I have an outdoor ottoman scheduled to land today from Target.
