New Seashell Artwork at the Beach Cabin

Happy Friday Everyone!

If you’ve been around since the beginning, you might remember the post I did on all our family artwork at my grandparent’s beach cabin. I recently spent a week up at the cabin with Baby E and I was pleasantly surprised to find that my aunt had created a new piece of artwork for the cabin. It’s definitely my new favorite piece and I am completely in awe of her creativity. The minute I saw it, I knew I had to share it with all of you!

To give you some background, here is the amazing view from the cabin. We sit right on the beach and look directly at Mt. Baker. It’s absolutely breathtaking…

Using this view as her inspiration, she created this amazing piece of wall art using different shells and rocks she found on the beach…

She took a piece of plywood that was in the garage and painted it blue. Then she used white clam and oyster shells create the look of snow on top of the mountain. I love how she found varying shades of muscles to create the fading effect from snow to land.

My aunt is a true DIY inspiration, one of these days I will take you on a tour of her home and show you some more of her work. She is pretty incredible.
