Beach Cottage Office Part 1

Two years till retirement....and what better way to jazz up those last two years than an office makeover....Since my office is a brown (yes brown!) and I can't really change that I needed a theme to work with the color....so Beach Cottage. I do so love the ocean!

I've been making and collecting items to use...I can envision it...now can I just pull it together. I'm getting there!  I still need a big fern....need to buy it soon before they all disappear!  I also need a wicker (or white table) and a wicker chair or two. I'm watching the thrift shops for this little (and most expensive) addition!

I've made some sea glass tinted bottles.  (Recycled bottles, free and tinted modge podge for the two center bottles, the rippled bottles are from Dollar Tree and is the shell dish!)



And bought these cute little flip flop wall hangings with pegs. (60% off at Michaels so $1.60 a shoe....and they are sooo cute....hard to tell from the picture!)


And these cute beachy looking coasters for my desk and little star fish that I am going to string somehow... (Michaels 2 dollar items)

And these wooden stars which I am going to paint....a nice sea blue....or maybe one white and one blue...haven't decided yet.  (Clearance at Michaels...1.49 each!)


Oh I have a bunch more stuff too...but I've already packed it away in a box until it's time to go back to work....July 30th. (sniff!)  So when I get it set up I'll post more pics or if I get it out before then!
