We live at the beach and I love cool colors so naturally my house is filled with whites, blues, and silver. I love how the colors look together! So, at the beach a few weeks ago, we collected shells and came home with a full bucket of pretty shells. I decided to brighten them up by spray painting them and filled the hurricane vases with about thirty shells each. I think they turned out beautiful and I love them! I think they look great on my dining room table and add a bit of elegance to my less than elegant house!
