Day 11: The Barefoot Rule

When I saw this saying...

"Beach House... No Shoes Required"

...on a hand painted sign, I new it was a perfect slogan for our house.  First of all, I love the relaxed coastal, beach house style.  Secondly, when the weather is nice, you'll usually find my husband walking around the neighbourhood in bare feet.  So after I cleaned up the footprints left all over the house (for the umpteenth time), I decided that the Jute Calendar required a little transformation.

A simple dry erase marker turns this once schedule supporter into...

...a place to display our home's barefoot rule.

So come on in, take your shoes off, relax, and stay awhile!

If you'd like to see how I made the framed weaved jute, check out this tutorial.

Thanks for stopping by.

This post is part of my blog series, "31 Days of Words to Live By".  For the month of October, I will be sharing my favourite quotes and sayings while incorporating them into daily life and art projects.

This series was inspired by The Inspired Room, where you'll find other "31 Days" series among many other wonderful things!



  1. You're so creative - I love both the calendar and the 'no shoes' sign! I love summertime when no shoes are required, ever!

  2. can i modify my sign to

  3. That is the perfect quote for a beach house. I checked out your tutorial and really admire the way your projects came together. Thank you for sharing!
    Ours is a "No shoes required" home as well... ":o)

  5. great "mantra" to live by...I couldn't agree more...lol...Happy Sunday, Mariaelena...come on over for a visit...

  6. I started on COPD Herbal treatment from Ultimate Life Clinic, the treatment worked incredibly for my lungs condition. I used the herbal treatment for almost 4 months, it reversed my COPD. My severe shortness of breath, dry cough, chest tightness gradually disappeared. Reach Ultimate Life Clinic via their website www.ultimatelifeclinic.com . I can breath much better and It feels comfortable!
