In the place where I live, there are four bedrooms. Although I have not completed the master bedroom yet, I have started mental plans on making one of the guest bedrooms a beach delight.
So far in the master bedroom, we have painted all the walls and the new carpet was put in. The bed linen was supplied by my sweety, more than positive this was to ensure the linen wouldn't get to girly. The only thing to do at this point, add curtains to compliment the linen, purchase 'S' hooks to hang my pictures from the Kestrel head board, and small finishing touches to make the space ours. Not to bad, and not to girly as my sweety would say.
In regards to the 'beach room'; well I still have to paint it and.. here, let me just show you.
My sister gave me a painting of a light house.. I am going to add it to the wall, bringing the beach front to life in the room. I plan on building a half pallet table and placing some beach items on it to bring that water front relaxation feel to it. lastly, the sheer curtains I intend on hanging, will bring a soft comfort to an over worked mind.
|Natural Stone Heart|
Bringing the outdoors in, by using a clothes hanger to design the heart and covering the space with a small hole mesh fencing, and filling it with rocks from a small opening.
|Clothes pin frame|
Can't you see this frame filled with pictures of the ocean and sunsets? Flips Flops and straw hats. Dolphins and seagulls. I can almost hear the ocean now.
|Beach Sand Foot Prints|
I found a wonderful website, explaining how tocapture your footprints in beach sand. How cool is that? I want to get a set of my foot prints and one of my sweety. How neat would it be to have one of his foot and one of mine? Perfect addition for a beach room.
I have the pallet for my table already. I am going to make just the table portion of this picture. It is going to hold a few Beach items, a basket next to it filled with beach gems will tie in the whole room.
|Beach Sand & Shell Jar|
The Beach Jar I have in mind, is filled with beach sand on the bottom, and shell all the way to the top. There will have to be lots of beach visits to finish this project. Yay for me!!
|Picture of a Lighthouse|

Lastly, the Big Blue. Although my Beach Room wont put you in the greatest beach places in the world. It will bring a small portion of what it could be, to you. I can not wait to get the room started.
What theme rooms have you started on?
