Estate Sale DIY: Beach Towels as a Rug

So remember when I said that I went to yard sales and an estate sale back in Richmond the Sunday before last? No? Well, I did make it to one estate sale the Sunday before I left on vacation- and it was pretty good :)

I found a little pile of vintage beach towels with retro colors and designs for 75 percent off of $2! A couple of them are a little too small to use as regular towels, but two together are the perfect size for a rug in the bathroom/closet/laundry room in our apartment:

Vintage Beach Towels (<$1); Richmond Estate Sale 6-6-10

Just kidding about the DIY, really. 'Cause all I did was recognize that the patterns would be awesome as a rug and put the towels on the floor! I guess if I wanted to, I could sew them together, but I might need them for something else in the future :)

I hope you all are having a great week!


This is a pre-scheduled post- I'm on my Florida vacation :)


  1. I love them! I totally wouldn't have thought of using them as rugs! Good find!


I love your comments! You all are the best!
