As summer approaches, we feel more and more the beach and the sun. It is time to put the finishing touches on the decoration of our house or apartment. We propose some DIY ideas to inspire you in this task.
Hacking Ikea furniture is a movement, very well documented, that allows you to carry out fantastic customizations. In this case we have a comfortable Rast from the Swedish firm that has been hacked using some wooden boards and some paint. In addition, marine-inspired images have been transferred to make it perfect in a house on the beach.
Painting an old piece of furniture is giving it a new life and if we choose a pastel blue tone like the one we see on this desk we will not need more to include it in a marine style decoration.
This vintage style side table has been adapted to a marine environment with a hand of slate paint and the drawing of a compass rose.
This original DIY table is a fantastic project for a house on the beach. It is made with roughly finished wood and the lower area has been left in the center, which has been filled with sand and shells collected on the beach.
This table of straight and simple lines could fit anywhere but painted in white will look great in a marine decoration.
Originally this side table was varnished in a dark tone. After painting it in white and light blue it has completely transformed its serious and old-fashioned character to fit in a much more carefree marine decoration.
We have here another comfortable that has been personalized with paint and to which the drawing of a whale has been transferred. A perfect piece of furniture for any room in our beach house.
This original comfortable was rescued from a second-hand store and with white and blue paint was made to enter this beach decoration.
The same was done with this old console. In this case the technique of dilution of the paint in water was used to achieve a lighter shade and an uneven finish.
This old forging structure console has been customized with rope and white and blue paint. And as we see it can be part of an elegant decoration like the one we see above.
