Thrifty Thursday: Boutique Seashells and Birds
I have this basket of shells in the kids/guest bathroom. Not much to look at, eh?!! But then I saw this picture on Pinterest and a lightbulb went off. My shells could be special. Maybe not silver plated $130.00 special but close enough.
So I picked up a can of Chrome spray paint for $3.67 at WM and got to work.
The starfish doesn't have the sheen that the other shells have. I think it must be too porous or something. I have plans to make a shadow box with a bunch of these shells glued in it.
And then I remembered the birds I had bought some time ago at Salvation Army (one with a chipped beak) and decided chrome would be the perfect "color" for my birds.
What do you think?
Are they amazing or what!!???
