Wood Box Makeover with Shells
I did a little paint makeover on a brown wood box that I picked up at a local thrift store. The lid of the box had a decorative inlay which is where I placed the shells. I used clear gorilla glue to adhere the seashells to the box. So now I have a tiny piece of local beach in my home!
