|Large Atlantis Clam Shell - ZGallerie, $60|
I had been searching Home Goods and similar stores for months keeping my eye open for something similar.
And I found it! In Canada of all places. I found it while I was perusing an antique/thrift store while working in Clinton, BC in July. Here it is in its original form.
|It's actually a man made shell. It looks like it was made from pottery and then glazed and put in a kiln for extra shine.|
|I got it for $15, but it was super shiny and definitely not the white ceramic look that I wanted.|
|Valspar interior primer in white and white gloss paint. My total was $8.19.|
|I still see shiny....|
|Primed and ready!|
|I realize it's difficult to see the glossy-ness of the paint with the garage lighting|
|I like the freshness of the white ceramic look on the dark table.|
|For now, I've put some wine corks in it. Eventually I'll figure out what to put in there... I hope.|
So while I think about what purpose this project serves... Did I make a fruit bowl? A wine cork holder? Maybe a candy dish (Halloween is just around the corner)? Does anyone out there have any suggestions for how to use my bowl... or where I should put it?
