Happy Friday everyone! I don’t know about y’all, but I’m ready to make three day work weeks a thing! Today is super exciting because I’m kicking off my Summer DIY Series! Every other week, now through the first week of August, I will be sharing easy, affordable, cute, weekend projects that are all inspired by popular summer destinations. Fun, right? This week’s project is inspired by one of my all-time favorite places on planet Earth… Charleston, South Carolina!
I’ve been wanting to hang these hooks that I had by our front door to give us a place to hang our things, but the crisp, modern look just isn’t my style anymore. Today, I’m sharing how I turned those old hooks into Charleston-inspired gilded gems.
2. Paint shells and hooks.
Tip: Make sure to shake gilding paint well before using. If you don’t, you may get a slight reddish tint.
3. Once the paint is dry (I let my hooks sit for a few hours because they had a thicker coat), hot glue the shells to the top of the hook. Be sure to use a generous amount of glue to make sure shells are completely secure.
4. When shells are secure, hang. I had to back my screws out of the wall a bit due to the shells natural curve.
Didn’t they turn out so cute? The gilding paint really brings out the detail in all of the shell, I love it!
Have a great weekend y’all!
