DIY beach sign + summer mantel.

I realized last week that I hadn’t done much to our mantel since adding this window, so I decided it needed a little refresher. If you follow me on Instagram you might have seen the beach sign I was working on last weekend, amongst a few other DIY wall art projects. The sign, combined with my desire to change up the mantel, resulted in a fun nautical design.

I made the sign with a piece of reclaimed wood, my go-to stencils & some sisal rope. (Note: After uploading these pictures, I decided the sign looked too clean and needed a little “roughing up” so I gave it a slightly more rustic feel by giving it a light sanding).

The nautical-themed mantel is comprised of my large antique window, a vintage fan, a sailboat picture, my beach sign and a rusted blue lantern. As much as I don’t want summer to end, I am already dreaming up some fun ideas for fall decor!
