Shabby Chic Aquarium

We have this 29 gallon aquarium that we bought last Christmas. Sounded like a good idea at the time. You know how it goes. Anyway, it was in my dining room and it was becoming an eyesore. Not really, but I can’t handle furniture that I can’t move around! So it had to go up to teenage son’s room or get a makeover.IMG_4908 So we went on a thrift store shopping hunt for anything funky, kitschy or just different. We found this “blue boy” statue for $1. We both thought he looked like an artifact that had fallen from a Victorian shipwreck long ago. I added some decorative paper to the back and a couple of pottery Sake’ cups that we had. Voila! Now the aquarium gets to stay in the kitchen (where we moved it).

The fish seem to like it.


On another note, cooler weather and some rain have finally arrived. It’s beginning to feel like fall around here.

Until next time…

Just for fun say “turquoise purse” 3 times fast! Don’t look at the words as you say them. Can you do it on the first try?
