Sea Glass Decor – Update!

Remember how I told you about the magical beach I found in Poole, England that was covered in sea glass?

They turned out to be the perfect items to decorate this unique space above the Coat Cubby.

Of course, with three jars, I had to find something for the other two.  I still had a stash of wine corks from my wine cork trivet project and they fit perfectly in the left jar.

For the jar on the right though, I needed something in another color.  Something that would contrast a bit.  I had a few starfish left after un-decorating the tree from the seaside theme, and they fit pretty well.

So there you have it, a permanent home for my sea glass collection that really shows it off.

Have you done any re-decorating lately?
