I love being able to post so many times this week, and I hope you all enjoy what I've come up with. I'm going to try hard to keep this up!
Over the weekend, I was working on more decorations for my room. Before, it had been such a weird mix of so many different styles of decorating, but now it's a bit more unified, which I think gives it a less cluttered look. Very cool.
I love my phone book paper art, but every time I make something, I like to switch it up a little. Have you noticed? I don't want everything TOO match-y. So it took me a little while to figure out what to do about my old surfboard bracelet holder. It was from the Claire's clearance rack quite a few years ago, and very cute. But it wasn't quite my style. So I covered the surfboard with phone book paper (surprised?) and then with blue watercolor paint to match my room. Then I took some gold nail polish and splattered that all over the surface. Finally, in keeping with the beach theme, I took a white shell, painted it gold, and glued it onto the front. Easy peasy. And fairly quick.
Here's how it turned out:
Pretty, huh? I'm really pleased with how it turned out.
