DIY Best of: 10 Beach Inspired Projects

ds_7_11_diy_brenna_pcbarnacles_3
Last week I took a little time off to see my family. I’m on the East Coast, along with my parents, but all of my siblings are on the West Coast. And since two of those siblings had babies this year, we decided it was easier for us East Coasters to fly West. I spent a few days in Santa Cruz relaxing by the beach. It was a great escape from the New York City heat. And now that I’m back, I’d love to find a way to bring a little beachy relaxation into my New York City life. I just want to park myself in front of the air conditioner, craft and watch Orange is the New Black (Grace got me hooked).   -Amy
