When I was putting together my recent post about updates in the basement, I came across this little project that I had totally forgotten about.
Back before we had even started finishing the basement, I had snagged these simple glass cylinders on mega-clearance at Pier 1, convinced that I would/could somehow use them once it was finished.
Fast forward to after the basement was finished…..and, nope.
Just wasn’t working for me.
[the picture’s kind of blurry but you get the idea]
Unadorned, the cylinders were reading just too contemporary for the casual, relaxed space.
I played with other things to fill them with, but nothing was working out.
Until I made a trip to Target and it hit me:
I was admiring these hurricanes from the Nate Berkus collection and thought “I could totally do this myself. I just need a plain glass hurric…wait a minute!!!!!”
Thanks Nate Berkus!
So once I got home, I snagged some jute rope that I knew I had buried somewhere in the basement, and got to wrappin’.
I added some candles that I already had, and 10 minutes later, I had a rustic, textured set of hurricanes that worked perfectly in the space!
