If you’ve been around from the beginning then you know this little blog journey started with my driftwood Christmas trees.
And, being that I live on the island of Curacao, I have what seems to be an unlimited supply of this driftwood stuff.
And, yes, I do realize that many of you are reading from locations that look (or feel) a little more like this right now.
Maybe you can consider this a little summer in January … or just a rude “in your face” sort of post from a girl on an island. ;)
I am hoping for the former. Please note that I have refrained from putting any pics of beautiful sunny beaches and turquoise water.
But, here are a few of the other things I’ve done with driftwood along the way.
Full disclosure on this wreath, the glue I used did not hold up after it had been left out in the rain and slowly and painfully fell apart one little piece at a time. :(
This little driftwood shelf has been such a great addition to our little kitchen with even littler storage.
And if you saw my 12 Days of Kindness you saw this guy.
I’ve got this guy in my blog header.
Here’s the whole shelf on the wall.
I found this awesome piece along the beach and to hang it I just drilled a couple holes in the wall and a couple holes in the wood. I was able to line them up using a little tape and paper trick I learned from John at YHL.
You may recognize the coral pieces on the left from this post. And, I’m happy to report, the clear varnish is still doing the trick.
I also have a few driftwood pieces planned as part of the gallery wall. You know, that wall I’m trying to make with just one screw in the wall for the Impossibilities challenge. Speaking of which, I need to get back at it. Our big reveal posts go up Monday … which I guess means I have 5 days to make this happen. And the big link up parties, all 6 of them, go live at 7am Eastern Time on Tuesday, January 31st.
