Beach Cruiser Love


So like many of you mid westerners I have spring fever so bad! I am sooo dreaming of vaca on the beach. I can't wait to get on my beach cruiser and just tool around. So my sister pulled this little jem out of her neighbors trash. This bike was originally purple and really beat up. So you know the saying "one mans junk is another ones treasure" or something like that, so true. Anyway you get the picture. So I am so happy with the way it turned out. Wish I would have taken before and afters oh well. I have to give the credit to my husband who painted it for me(custom blue of course) Then I had to make it all cute and girly and add the hibiscus flowers, bell and daisy basket . I just hot glue gunned simple little daisies to the basket and voila ! Beach ready... That basket fits 2 bottles of vino quite nicely I must say! I love taking something old and recycling it, you just have to have a vision and be able to see past all the imperfections. I am starting to get really inspired to start getting crafty I have all kinds of new ideas in mind I will keep you posted on the next art project, I think all this sunshine got me motivated ! Have a great week!

Happy crafting!
