Coral Decor with a little DIY

Coral Decor - CreativeMeInspiredYou.com

This coral decor looks like it could have come from Pottery Barn.

It didn’t.

And, it didn’t cost PB prices either.

I looked on their website. There was a piece of coral for $50.

Wanna know what I paid?

I paid $11.95 for two pieces of plastic fish tank coral.

I paid about $2.50 for the blocks of wood.

I paid $.99 each for a can of black gloss spray paint, and a can of white flat spray paint. I already had the glue- but let’s add that in about $.25 for what I used.

A little over $16 for two totally awesome pieces.

Take that high prices!

You are going to need some 4×4 blocks.

You can buy a piece at the lumber store and they will make cuts for you for a minimal cost. About $1 a cut.

Mine measure 4×4 and 4×6 inches.

Once your blocks are cut, sand them smooth.

Then begin spray painting them. Be sure to give them time to dry between coats.

If you want a very glossy finish, be prepared to add about 10 layers on the blocks in gloss spray.

After they are dry, paint your  coral any color you chose. I like white so that is my color. I layered the spray on because white doesn’t always coat that well.

Let them dry.

Now to put them together.

I love silicone. It is a better adhesive than many glues on the market. Buy clear and spend about $3.25 for a tube that will last you.

Then caulk your shower. :D

Or not.
