Ideas for using polished rocks in your decorating

What can you do with 2 – 50 lb. bags of polished rocks for decorating in your home?

Last year I came into 2 – 50 lb. bags of black polished rocks via Craig’s List from Velocity Design as they were moving to their new location.  The rocks were from a design installation they weren’t going to repeat at the new space.  There were far more rocks than what I took!

First, I used them in the design at thinkspace in the vases and at the base.

Then, I looked for ways to use them in my space:

  • decorate at the base of my CD holders – makes a nice line straight across
  • disguise the ugly white plastic frame of the sliding glass door…liked this idea so much I took the line of rocks all the way around the edges of my living room floor!  It adds a nice nature touch to the space.
  • accessorize a candle vase
