We took a family trip a couple of summers ago to Captiva Island, Florida near Naples. We had a great time and among all the fun things we did we collected shells on the beach. I used some of them to create a little bathroom art fitting in with the beachy theme we had going.
The only problem was that when we painted and did our mini makeover early last year the frames no longer fit in with the rest of the decor. I recently revamped the diy old calendar art we had in the room. I loved how they came out, so I decided to revamp the sea shell souveniers as well.
I also wanted to get a more minimal effect since before they had too many shells. I paired down the shells to five per frame.
I also printed out the words Captiva Island on cardstock for the base/mat to glue the shells on to.
Lastly, I repainted the frames in the same brushed nickel as the old calendar art mats, to link the two sets together with color.
