Hand Painted Beach Sea Shell table

perfect for your coastal theme home.


 This latest project is an example of up cycling a cable spool.

My husband does carpentry work locally and loves woodworking. He grew up in the Bahamas around boats so it is something he is connected with.

He completely covered the spool with birch plywood and reclaimed cedar tongue and groove panels. He loves the glossy finish look and created that when he constructed the cedar areas of the table. The top and base that I hand painted has a nice smooth satin finish.

I decided to stick with a monochromatic theme because of the nice cedar used in the table. Monochromatic means one color so I used browns and white to tie in without distracting from the nice wood tones.

This hand painted beach sea shell table is ready for a new home. It will fit nicely in a large foyer or a small dining set up. The top is hand sanded and sealed for a nice smooth durable finish. A glass top can be added before use to make it a larger table if desired.

 I created the top design by arranging real seashells onto the surface.


Now to paint the top! Arranging the shells then hand paint them on one at a time. #customart #coastaldecor #CocoaBeach #beach #seashell #customfurniture #handpainted #jeanosart #etsy

 It takes time deciding what arrangement looks best. My Facebook connections chimed in on  what the best look was.

 Here is a detailed photo of the process of copying the shells and painting them onto the table top.

I enjoyed this project it allowed me to combine the detailed shells and scenery that is usually reserved for my Beach Benches.
