New Seashells

I made a quick little change in my bedroom and I think it looks SO much better.

I started out with these seashells I printed out from the graphics fairy...

But I knew they wouldn't be staying for long. I ended up painting a seashell blue, and adding Minwax Early American, and then gluing it to the burlap background. Even though I like the seashell print, I think this fits the look I was going for much more.

And here's a little before shot for comparison. I think the urn on the shelf looks so much better too.

Love it, Ali! Looks so light and beachy. Can I come take a nap in your bed? I drool on pillows, though.

I really like your framed starfish on the burlap! I am trying to figure out what to put on the walls in my newly-painted bathroom...and this may be the starting point for me!
Thanks for visiting Red Hen Home.
