When I saw this BIG conch shell in Goodwill for just a few clams (*drum fill*), I knew it was time to whip out my silver spray paint and work some magic.
Here’s how I found the shell.
I felt pretty sure it would be happy in our home since–despite living in the mountains–we have several nods to the sea, like this clam bowl…
…and our ever-increasing collection of found shells.
I was actually working on another paint project too, so the drop cloth was already out and ready to go! I grabbed a can of Krylon Metallic Brilliant Silver spray paint from the garage and set to work. [I propped the shell up with a few mini paper cups when and where needed.] I decided to leave the inside that lovely peachy pink natural color. Lovely!
So now this guy fits right in. All he needed was a coat of silver spray paint!
Now the question is will he lay down…
…Or stand up…
…Or hang with other shell friends? Who knows.
One thing’s for sure, though: now I am having to stay my trigger finger from painting something else, wheeeeeee!
So what are you spray painting this weekend? WHAT? you’re NOT? Well, you should, SERIOUSLY. It’s easy, a few bucks, a few minutes, and almost-instant gratification!
