Using Glass Bottles For Sweet Sunroom Decor

Spring is in full swing as demonstrated by our blooming azaleas and my allergy flare ups. So it seemed only fitting to treat a few side tables in our sunroom to a quick spring makeover. Here’s one of the side tables before:

And here’s the more cheerful and spring-like after. We found that sea fan on our recent island vacay, and the glass cup is sitting on some adorable striped coasters from John’s sister.

Here’s what the other side table looked like before my spring sprucing:

And here’s the happier and shinier after. I gathered up some old wine bottles and a few glass vases (and even an old blue soap dispenser minus the pump) and grouped them on a tray. They’re like 3-D stained glass when the sun streams through the window. And a couple of starfish keep things interesting.


Here’s a close up of my favorite detail, an unexpected starfish-cork:

Variety really is the spice of life. And even though we love a white accessory (or ten) there really is nothing like a little color to compliment all those spring blooms. We’d love to know if you guys have any spring rituals. Cleaning sprees? Decorating switcharoos? Shopping extravaganzas? What puts a spring in your step? Do tell.

    Oooh, I’m a big fan of colored glass. When I was in Key West, my back got so sunburned because I couldn’t make myself stop searching for glass on the beach. It looks so beautiful and springy in your sunroom!

    I am so glad that I came across this blog. We just happen to have some starfish and wanted to come up with a creative way to decorate with them. Thanks for the inspiration.
