Home Decor Diy Cheap

This trio of coastal decor frames are a versatile beach wall art grouping with fingerling starfish, delicate sand dollars, and knobby starfish. Two frames measure 6 3/8 x 8 3/8 and the larger one measures 7 1/4 x 14 1/4. I have arranged these pieces in different groupings to show their are several different possibilities. Notice the beautiful filigree like border which I painted black then covered with a soft vintage white. I lightly distressed back to the black to highlight and to create a cottage chic or modern vintage look. I discovered recently that starfish not only represent healing and regeneration but also infinite divine love. That being said, it would be most beautiful anywhere in your home where you can be reminded of the love our heavenly Father has for us. This coastal cottage wall art grouping is ready to hang and add beauty and meaning to your decor. When purchasing, please send me a converation via Etsy on how you would like your shells affixed…either vertical or horizontal…maybe a combination of both

I started by lightly sanding the dresser to remove some of that shiny junk off… I know, I sound so professional 😉 Then, I wiped off the dust from sanding. This roughened up the wood a bit and since I was using spray paint, I wanted it to stick really well. I also recommend using Gloss Off. You can get it from Home Depot and it helps the paint adhere better. Next, I removed all the hardware and put it in a sandwich baggie so I didn’t lose anything. Losing screws and hardware = not cool.  Not like I’ve lost any in the middle of a project or anything 😉 Next, I took all of the drawers …
