Coastal style with Rust-Oleum
I am busy putting together a project booklet for Rust-Oleum that shows a variety of ways to use the many Rust-Oleum products that you can buy at your local Builders Warehouse. The coastal-style decor project came out really well and I thought I would share a few elements with you.
For this coastal-style project I upcycled and repurposed a terracotta flower pot and a wine bottle.
The idea behind the project was to use up some old seashells that I collected on many trips to the coast.
I don't know about you, but I only seem to find the dregs and not many special shells, with exception of the one use above for the flower pot.
Both the flower pot and wine bottle were sprayed with two coats of Rust-Oleum Satin ivory silk, letting each coat dry before applying the second coat. I also popped the flower pot and wine bottle on a small scrap of wood to lift it up slighting and make it easier to spray around the bottom.
Using a hot glue gun to secure the starting and end points, the lower third of the wine bottle was wrapped with string.
String was also wrapped around the bottle neck a couple of times and then tied in a knot. The ends were frayed and to cover up the knot I hot glued a shell over the top.
I thought the whole ensemble came out looking pretty nice and I am going to pop some soaps into the flower pot for use in the bathroom.
