It is the first Makeover Monday here on the DP blog! I am sharing with you how to transform some ordinary seashells and glass knobs found at a flea market into gorgeous shell jewelry bowls. You are not gonna want to miss this transformation!
Seashells similar to these (clam shells)
Vintage glass door knobs
Pearl & matte acrylic paint (Martha Stewart Multi-surface in aquarium and lake fog)
1. Paint Martha Stewart Multi-surface pearl in aquarium on the inside of the shells. This took about 3 full coats to get a solid colored surface. Let dry.
2. Paint the outer surface of the shells in Martha Stewart Multi-surface matte in lake fog. This took about 2 full coats. Let dry.
3. Grab your E6000 and adhere the shell to your vintage glass door knob. I did touch up the metal on the knobs with a silver metallic paint. Let completely dry before use.
4. Enjoy your newly created shell jewelry bowls.
I love the way the inside is pearled and the outside is matte on these shell jewelry bowls. Don’t you?
So are you wondering how Makeover Mondays are going to work? Each Thursday I will be posting some items that I have found treasure hunting during the week (Treasure Trove Thursday). I will then pick one treasure to transform for my Makeover Monday feature!
These shells were found at a local flea market and I was inspired by their shape and texture. They do make the loveliest bowls to arrange in a tray on your dresser or on your bedside table.
I hope you will follow along! Tell your friends about the transformations and chime in with whatever finds you have found for the week. I would love to hear about what made your heart go pitter-patter! Heck, you can even send me a photo of your treasures via email firstname.lastname@example.org and I will share with the DP social media communities!
So, what do you think of these shell jewelry bowls with glass knob pedestals?
If you feel they are pin-worthy here is a great pic for your favorite Pinterest board!
