I purchased the flamingo planter last November--I have to admit,
I passed it by at the church sale a couple of
times before I decided to buy it.
I then found the metal Florida souvenir bowl
and my idea for the coffee table began to take shape.
The bowl is appealing with it's still-bright colors. I believe the bowl is from the early 1970's as it has Disney World noted on the map.
I already had the vintage postcards that I received from a sweet friend.
I used a burlap runner (for my sand) and a blue tray I made and painted with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in duck egg blue (for my water). I also added a few shells that I've picked up on beach walks.
My final addition to the coffee table is of course, a book about the beach--Mary Kay Andrews' Beach Town. And, have your heard????Mary Kay Andrews has a 100 page novella that will come out on April 5th entitled, Change of Scene. It's a prequel to Beach Town and it will only be available as a e-book.
It all comes together for a fun Vintage Spring Break Coffee Table. It brings back memories of family trips of the past and a few trips I hope to make in the future.
What about you? Do you have some nice spring break memories? Did you get to go to the beach or maybe the mountains for a quick spring break getaway? I'd love for you to share a memory today!
