Big Style " side tables "

 I love a " look for less" project

 one that gives you

that visual impact without

spending much...

My style of coastal decor incorporates

a type of wood element.

I stumbled upon a lovely

man cleaning out his garage...

{need I say more}

who could pass spending a few dollars

for great style...

Old wood box for ten dollars

plus a bit of rope from the hardware store

equals the perfect coastal side table...

I sealed all of my wood pieces

with a few coats of polyurethane...

{I grabbed a 3.00 mini ladder as well}

A little goes a long way with a neutral palette...

Lots of Whites and old wood

feel good in our coastal style home...

I will be linking this week to some wonderful ladies

who truly know how to inspire...

I am new to your blog, I found it through Romantic Homes. It is very nice. I love all your pictures here, and all the elements used work so well together. Beautiful simplistic decorating. I'm a big fan of white with splashes of color too.
