Over the summer, we did our beachy master bathroom makeover! While painting the room was fun, my favorite part of it was the various crafty/DIY projects I did with some of the shells & starfish. This framed starfish project was perfect for using some of our leftover paint to create matching custom color pops on the opposing bathroom walls!
To start, I picked up 3 really inexpensive frames (like less than $5 each).
Then, I took out the glass and removed the backs of the frames. I used the leftover wall paint to paint the frames. While those dried, I painted the insides of the frame backs dark brown (with more leftover paint we had from another painting project). Once the paint was dry, I distressed the frames–perfect for that weathered beach look!Once the frames were distressed, the only thing left to do was attach the starfish. After figuring out which way the starfish looked best, I hot-glued them onto the frames, and voila…3D Framed Starfish Art. Perfect for our beachy bathroom!! A SUPER easy project, perfect for using up some leftover paint (if you don’t have paint leftovers, you could always pick up the little Glidden paint testers).I love the way it ties the whole bathroom together, by having a splash of color on the walls that we left white. We even have his & hers starfish now!
