A while back I purchased these two -- not really sure WHAT to call them -- (um, maybe we'll call them orbs) ok, then, orbs -- at Club G.W. for $6.00. It might have been $4.00, who knows, all I can say is that I knew I had to have them. What the heck would I do with them? Well, that would be decided later.....
I guess I was initially thinking candle holders. Pretty traditional, I know.
downright bleh brown color, though, had to go! So out came the blue painter's tape.
And an old can of creamy white paint left behind by our home's prior owners.
Speaking of old paint, does anyone know if there's a figurative DO NOT USE BY date on these things? I know there's not a literal date, I was just wondering what your experience has been with paint longevity........
So after priming, two coats of paint and a little distressing with sandpaper, voila.
Shells seemed the way to go, what with summer rapidly approaching. I think we could all use a breezy, beachy look in our homes come summer, no matter where we live.
So let's recap.
Just looking at them makes me smile.
Who knows what I'll fill them with next? Any suggestions?
Thanks for stopping by, and I hope you're all having a great week!
