I’ve spent so much energy lately finishing up my bathroom makeover, that I’m kind of burned out. I needed a little instant project gratification.
I’ve had this heavy ceramic vase for a while now. Never knew quite where to put it. I really liked its colors, but I thought there was a little too much rust going on and it felt really bottom heavy to me. I’ve been seeing so much jute in the catalogs and even out in blog land that I thought it was high time that I got in on the game.
All you need is some white glue and some jute twine. You can get twine anywhere (grocery store, garden center, Wal-mart). I suppose you could hot glue the twine down, but since I was initially unsure if I was going to like it, I wanted to make sure the twine would be easy to remove if I got a little fickle.
Just lay some glue down and wrap your twine. Could not be any easier.
Looks great on my mantel. Perfect amount of instant gratification. Now, I just have to rest up and gather my courage for my next project: the den/guest room/sewing room/game room.
Have you done any easy-peasy projects lately that gave you a little boost?
