It's been a while and I'm wondering whether anyone will be reading this post. I wanted to share with you a really fun project we've been working on for the past few days.
It all began with this surfboard table my partner a builder made for a client, owner of our favourite cafe in the area, on the balcony at his home.
The idea grew when he was asked to transform the whole balcony into a beach complete with sand! as well as a corrugated iron bar and outdoor shower for a surprise birthday party for his wife.
A huge thanks to the very strong labourer who lugged bucketfuls of sand up stairs for 2 days, sometimes in the rain.
I collected some of the oversupply of beachy props that have been hanging around here, oars, driftwood, shells, lobster buoys, beach signs, surfing prints and bought a few plants and a beach umbrella to add some colour to the scene.
With an all white background and an ocean view to die for it's a fantastic setting for a beach party.
Recycled materials were used for the rustic beach bar. I like the effect of the rusty corrugated iron, weathered wood and pops of colour in contrast to the white walls.
Happy Birthday Vicki!
and the text message when she arrived home last night began with OMG OMG OMG! a huge surprise. she loves it.
