DIY – Gold Starfish Coastal Art
So, this will be my last post – for now – of my out of control weekend with the gold spray paint. I wanted to create some fun items for my booth. I probably have not mentioned to y’all, but I have a small retail space here in Mount Pleasant at Southern Accents. I sell furniture, accessories and decor. They are things that I make, reupholster, paint or buy from my vendors. It keeps me busy!
Moving on! I decided to create a little coastal art for my buyers because, well, we live on the coast.
I bought these darling little starfish at a local furniture store in town. I almost got the sea urchins, but I wanted to conquer one at a time, so I started with these.
Then, I began the spraying process using my favorite gold spray paint, Krylon Metallic gold.
They sat to dry.
Then, I bought a shadow box. I cut out the circles to put on the glass so that I could display my starfish the way I wanted.
Next up, I cut the circles and taped them to the glass of the shadowbox.
It was time to spray the glass white.
I used a glue gun to secure the starfish to the back of the shadowbox (sorry, I forgot take that pic.) It was finally finished and ready to be hung!
I cannot wait to put this in my booth! Hope y’all have a great week! I’m heading to the Haven Conference in Atlanta to learn more and meet some of my favorite bloggers. I cannot wait to share some of my moments with you! If you want to see what’s going on, make sure you follow me on Instagram!
