- collect sand and shells from different beaches;
- store hard candy in; I usually have cough drops around so I am going to one for them for in the living room;
- if you have a beach kitchen, so many things could be in them, including: sugar, tea bags, coffee, coffee creamer, ice tea packets...
- in the bathroom: q-tips, cotton balls, band-aides, hair bands/scrunchies... just about anything in an ugly card board box...line them up on top of the medicine cabinet; besides looking pretty, you can see right away what's inside!
In the kitchen, I primed the lids with Kiltz primer... and let them dry. Then I took them outside and sprayed with Rustoleum sand textured paint:
Brought them back inside and played with shells to cover 'Marie's'. I used E-6000 glue to glue the shells to the top.
I didn't think it was quite enough, although I was loving it. So I got out my handy dandy rope...
Just wrapped it around and tied a knot. I did add a drop of glue in the front and back and at the knot to keep it in place.
Added Q-Tips and cotton balls and wa la!
Left them there for the glue to dry but looking good on my map covered dresser!!
And I was able to sleep better after getting crafty!!
