Ready to hit the beach with a unique and upcycled accessory this summer? Look no further than this chic mesh beach bag from Parisian blogger Pascale Mestdagh of Between the Lines.
This fun carry-all is made from unexpected household materials, like an old window screen and a tablecloth, and is just as cute as a store-bought alternative but costs mere pennies to create.

In addition to looking seriously stylish, you’ll also enjoy another perk from your re-purposed mesh bag – less sand on your stuff (and the floors of your beach house).
Just shake out your bag after leaving the beach and enjoy noticeably less grit when you return home. Easy breathability also minimizes the icky wet towel situation. Simply genius!
Ready to give it a try? Get step-by-step instructions on how to make it yourself at Between the Lines. Just be sure to wash your window screens first!
