Do You Sea What I Sea?


Why pay the big bucks for Pottery Barn's beautiful coral?


When you can take some seriously UGLY faux coral from the thrift shop ($1.95)



Spray on a little Heirloom White paint



And bring a touch of the ocean to your home?



Can you tell I wish summer would come?

May your day be cheap and chic!

Not only does it look good, but you can use it as a back scratcher!

Aren't you clever! It looks great. Off to the thrift store to look for ugly coral . . .

Seriously, you should own stock in Heirloom White! LOL

You are my re-painting idol. No joke. The downside ... if I ever get around to tackling my own re-paint projects, I've got you in my sights to email for advice!! ;)

You're crafting it up between the episodes of puking and diarrhea? Such dedication to the crafty arts!

Tracie said...
