She's Got a Can of Spray Paint!

While at Nate's family's beach house, we noticed a decor trend - the silver-plating of sea-related relics. Observe a few specimens.

The mantle is loaded with silver seashells - these were once actual dwellings for sea creatures that have been silver-plated for the enjoyment of beach house guests.

Even this piece of driftwood is now encrusted with silvery goodness.

This poor starfish seems to have escaped his spray-paint happy Captor in time to warn his fellow starfish about the "crazy lady with a can of silver spray paint," but sadly he was recaptured and the job finished. Poor little fellow. I'm tempted to glue some googly eyes to his little face.

Watch out Buddy. I hear you're next!

    VERY pretty!

    Yesterday I actually spraypainted an old gold baroque mirror...well, I painted the frame...Glossy LIME green! Then I put the mirror back in. It's total hotness. I'll take a photo of it for manicdote soon!

    That silver and blue and white is so pretty and cool. I'm trying to imagine Buddy all silver and frozen in place by the fireplace.

    What a great idea! I'll have to try that. With what I don't know. Yet. I'll think of something.

    I don't know what I think about that. I think I'm more into the natural look....but it's a creative idea and does give it a modern touch. Sometimes I wish I could freeze the pugs in silver (as long as that means motionless as well....)
