Since I live in Florida seashells are not hard to come by. I bought these shells at a local shell store and spraypainted them white. My husband cut the wood 2" wide x 10" long. I painted them and lightly distressed the edges.

I started painting by using primer first and the. Two coats of high hiding white paint. I let the primer dry for a whole day and let the two coats of basic white dry a whole day.
I bought new knobs from Hobby Lobby @ $4.99 each (why are knobs so expensive??):
I distressed the edges with my electric sander. And here's the finished product:

I found this water damaged, heavy as crap, chest of drawers on the side of the road. It sat in my garage for two months before I touched it. I wasn't in love with HHR chest but you can't beat free!
Painted it antique white:
I wasn't satisfied with it being plain white. So I painted an anchor on it. This stuff is really popular in my beach town. I think the anchor gives the boring chest a unique touch.
