Nifty Thrifty Tuesdays No.5

This week I'm at my beach condo...sooooo...how about a BEACHY thrifty treasure? I needed a new towel rack rack in the bathroom for all those beach towels...it needed to be at least four feet long and I could not find one that long in the stores...so with some SWEET talking...Mr.CC said he would cut me a piece of wood...thank you honey! After the wood was cut and painted, then the four hooks were screwed in...looked a little blah...so I had the idea to add some cute little starfish to it...WOW...what a difference this made! The breakdown for the rack... wood/$4.00...hooks/FREE(already had them)...paint/FREE(already had this too)...starfish/$2.00 for one(already had two of them at the condo)...shopping my own home is one of my favorite places to go thriftin...how about you?

****Please everyone, follow these guidelines!****

A little blah? Yes indeed!These little guys...added that needed POP!Can you believe that I'm still using this 23 year old glue gun? Well it still works and my mini gun is hiding from me!Here she is...looking good with her starfish friends!While I wasn't working on my rack...I was taking in the beauty of our coastline!What a perfect day to be wind surfing and sailing...a true WINDY March day!

What a cute idea using the starfish!! I am sorting and organizing and am finding I have lots of shells and such and think I need to make a tablescape or something with them all- think summer will be a good time for that!

Thanks for a great party!
