My New Sea Shell Cabinet

This week I did a make over on my seashell cabinet. Here is the before picture. I love this cabinet that hubs found by the curb. I added the glass door knobs.

I still had some Martha Stewart “sea glass” paint left and decided to paint the cabinet with it.
The hardest part was taping off and covering all the glass, on both sides!

Another challenge was finding a cover for the light bulb.

My free and frugal solution was to simply drape a vintage hankie over the metal bar above the bulb. Viola!

When I finished painting, I took some rough sand paper to the edges.

Here’s a little seashell tour:

Sorry about the dark, blurry pics!

I also have an old bottle collection that I like mix with my shell collection.

  1. Your sea shell cabinet painted in the sea glass color is just pure perfection! I LOVE it! That does look like quite a job to tape off ALL of that glass inside and out but you did a great job. It doesn't look like a curbside curio anymore. Thanks so much for hosting your party for us!
