Copper Sea Shells for Fall
So, I painted my sea shells copper. They look great! Copper is showing up in accessories everywhere. I love copper because it pairs so well with other metals, especially oil rubbed bronze.
Vintage Typewriter Table up-cycle. I just took the shells outside and gave them a quick spray. On the larger shells, I decided to just paint the inside. I rimmed them with Frog Tape so that the spray paint wouldn't get on the outside. (Sorry I was so excited about how the other shells looked that I didn't take a picture of this, but it's easy enough.)
The extra large shell at top was a planter that I have had for years. The inside looked a little pitted, but the paint made it look like new. Now it's a copper eye-catcher. I use it in our bathroom to hold an extra roll of toilet paper and a hand towel.
Have you added any copper accessories to your house?
