Shell We Continue?

Ahhhhhh, Pottery Barn. What a fabulous resource. Couldn't you just spend hours pouring through their catalogs, hatching your next evil plan?
For this glitzy little project, round up some seashells and silver spray paint.
Um, paint the shells.
Three light coats.
Both sides.
Yeah, that's kinda it. 
Difficulty level: My Dog Could Do This.
Results? Whoa.....




I tucked in a few miniature silver glitter silver ornaments from Target's Dollar Spot. They come in tubes, and there are different colors if you're not heavily into silver.
Bowl circa 1920 courtesy of my great grandmother.
But this sure beats her wax fruit.

Suddenly glad I have all those freaking shells from when we still lived in Jacksonville... I collected shells every time we went to the beach. They're sitting in a sad pile on the floor of our guest bedroom currently...

Clever once again! Never would have thought...I love anything silver. Looking for something to spray today because of this, but here in the Texas Panhandle, shells are not plentiful. But will find something. Have a good day..
