...Copa Cabana! Just a few words today and a lot of pics. We are planning a little summer shindig at our house and I wanted to add a beach-y cabana feel to our outside serving bar on the cheap. I used 3 yards of white canvas and a handful of craft paint in vintage beachy colors. I used blue tape to mask out stripes (ala beach towels & bocce balls) - not being overly concerned with perfection.
I just thinned the paint with water to give it a streaky, weather-worn patina.
I added grommets to the top and hung it from tiny finishiing nails. I am going to add some rope as a finishing detail. Again, I wanted a really casual, spur of the moment look.
A fun, easy, & cheap little accent - the fabric was even pre-hemmed! Woot!
In a few days, our tile-topped serving bar will be overflowing with drinks, fruits, and summer treats! Everybody into the pool!
