Coral in an unexpected color

I wish I could post some big elaborate project today, but those are still in the works, so I'm posting just a little something I whipped up this morning.

I found this beautiful gray coral on Belongings.  If you haven't checked them out and you love coastal decorating you will be in heaven!  They have BEAUTIFUL things.


This beauty is $95 on their website.  Too expensive for me!
I had a red piece of coral so I transformed it with a little spray paint!  Here's what it looked like before....




I couldn't find a good gray spray paint, so I used gray primer instead!  By the way, I love this Rustoleum 2x Ultra Cover spray paint.  It's about $4 a can at the Depot, but it sprays so nicely and the nozzle is thick, so no "spray paint fingers"....well, unless you are extremely messy like me!

And here is the after..




A designer look, for $4!
