Ever since I saw these sun-bleached turtle shells on Jayson Home, I knew I wanted something similar without paying hundreds for it. I found these two beauties while thrifting and knew it was meant to be at $30. I used leftover Benjamin Moore Cloud White paint from when we painted our new place, and quickly brushed a coat on the outer shell.
After the paint dried, I sanded away parts here and there and voila! I had my own set of distressed shells. #turtletime
Fun fact: Christian is completely grossed out with turtles. I’ve been with the guy for seven years, but this was something I did not know. SO, my plan to hang these babies by the front door was a bust when he was fake gagging while looking at them (similar to Vicki Gunvalson on RHOC being carsick on the bus in Bali…who else saw that and laughed like crazy!?). I was forced to find a new hanging spot – one that he wasn’t necessarily forced to look at all the time, so I thought this little nook above our den blankets would be just right.
What do you think? Are y’all into it or not so much?
Thanks so much for reading! XO –
