I did a simple project yesterday with some old juice glasses that were sort of icky looking… you know when you leave water in a glass too long with flowers and it leaves this residue that you just can’t get off the glass? That was the problem with these glasses. I was inspired by the Seagrass Hurricane vases from Ballard Designs and wanted to put these old glasses to good use. I am part of a blog summer celebration series next week and am doing a summer tablescape on the beach so you are getting a mini preview today of one of the elements on my table:
It was incredibly easy to do. I used some rope I had left over from Drew’s trash bucket and just used the same technique I did with that to wrap a few rows of rope around the bottom of the glasses. The whole project probably took me around 10 minutes. Here are the supplies you need:
Glue Gun, Rope, Old Juice Glasses.
The Baby is an optional, and cute, addition for any project prep. 🙂
I got these gorgeous hydrangeas at Trader Joe’s this morning as Elle and I ran a zillion errands (every Monday morning Drew goes to his friend’s house).
The rope came from Home Depot and you’ll see it in action again next Wednesday during the summer series I’m a part of… start getting excited for some great summer ideas from some really inspiring bloggers!
On a different note, I wanted to share this link to a super short article that I read yesterday… for any mother or father sitting in church with a child(ren) who won’t be quiet read this… It brought tears to my eyes because that is us every Sunday (like a few weeks ago when Drew yelled out “no!” in the middle of the sermon at a ‘perfectly timed’ spot…).
AJ’s 35th Birthday is today we are celebrating in style tonight with lobster and friends which means I need to step away from the computer and start cleaning like a crazy woman… The house needs a little lovin’ (but what house with a toddler doesn’t need constant cleaning?).
