I’m popping in this weekend to share a quick and easy beachy/coastal inspired DIY. But before I do take a look at who showed up for lemonade the morning after I wrote this post! Too funny! It’s a lot harder now to be angry at her for eating my day lilies by the mailbox 2 year in a row when she looks so sweet and innocent relaxing under our tree!:-)
However, deer repellent spray will still be coming out in full force next year. Now onto the coastal inspired DIY! I can’t get enough of the casual beauty of coastal decorated homes lately.
Here are a few of my favorites!

When I saw this coastal inspired gold sculpted bowl online at Wisteria a light bulb went on.
Ever since we had a couple of dead ash trees cut down in our front yard I have had these branches hanging out in the corner of my garage. A friend had suggested I hang on to some of my dead branches for a Christmas DIY project she said was really cute. Well, that DIY project never happened and so when I saw this coastal gold branched bowl I thought I’ll spray the branches with gold paint. Easy!
I ended up choosing one of the thicker branches that had some smaller offshoots. I liked it’s shape. It looks to me like a sea branch I would find washed up on the beach. Of course, in real life it wouldn’t be gold but doesn’t everything look prettier right now all shimmered out in gold?!
If you or a neighbor (I’m sure they wouldn’t mind:-) ) has a dead tree or some branches that need to be cut from a tree then you have the main supply needed for this project. Only thing left is to cut the branch. And then to spray it with gold metallic spray paint. I got mine at Home Depot for only $3.50!
And that’s it! Got to love an easy DIY! Have a wonderful rest of your weekend!
