upcycled coastal christmas







Hello.. 
Today I have a few white coastal Christmas decorations to show you, made with some things thrifted & found at garage sales
We're loving all the white with silver and Christmas lights at our place. I think it suits the Christmas climate here and feels like coming home to a cool oasis on a scorching hot day. 





I was going to use spray paint, but ended up using a paint brush , primer and a few coats of white paint to upcycle a gold pineapple, a wooden bowl & a cake stand.





Filled with white shells & little silver baubles, they add a festive feel to our entry.






before..


What do you think? 
Better white?
