Show off your seashells!

{say that 3 times fast!}
I've had this collage frame for over 10 years now and for most of that time, it's been sitting in a closet collecting dust. As I was placing it in the trash pile, it hit me... 

Paint it! 

After taking the glass out, I painted the frame with Krylon Dual in white and shabbied the edges. 
I  found some scrapbook paper at Hobby Lobby a few months ago and had to have it. 
I love the weathered wood look.
Then I replaced the glass and using my super hot glue gun, attached some pretty shells and sea life.

Then I made some burlap ribbon and attached it to the top to hang.
...and this is what I got...

It looks lovely hanging on my apple green wall. 

Thank you for checking out my sea life display! Please stop back by really soon!
