Upcycling Old Metal Fish Decorations
March 2016

We recently moved to a lovely beach community.
This demands that we have lots and lots of 'beachy' themed items in our home. Yay!
Rather than buying all new stuff, we frequently go to garage sales, tag sales, estate sales and thrift stores searching for beachy bargains!

Recently I found some older metal beachy fish at an estate sale.
I picked them up for $5 each.
I recently ordered 'alcohol paint' and chose lots of jewel toned, pearlescent colors.
The alcohol paints stick to the metal finishes nicely and offer more brilliant colors.
No priming. Just painted over the old paint.
Voilá! Fresh Beachy Fish!
