This past weekend I dedicated a few hours each morning to a few D.I.Y projects I’ve had in mind. Although I did not work on them all at the same time, I did revisit and jotted down a few ideas. I was inspired to finally work on this one which I’ve been meaning to tackle since last summer. Sea Horses is one of my favorite animals and have been adding a few pieces to my bathroom decor such as grays, silvers, whites and some touches of black as well.
I purchased these seahorses for $12 about 2 years ago on Amazon. Back then my decor was a bit more colorful so these seahorses fit right in, but right now I’m going for a more sleek and cleaner decor which called to give these seahorses a glamorous touch. I went to my local hardware store and purchased a Silver metallic spray for $4 and sprayed painted the seahorses. I love how they turned out and it was exactly how I wanted them to which is this subtle Metallic look without that high sheen. I got a little spray happy and spruced up a tray mirror I had lying around too!
Once they dried I added the eyes with a black sharpie marker.
I also spruced up this shabby old mirror.
I simply stuck them to my wall and the final product below….
