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!
