Make a beautiful sea shell shadow box table from a repurposed piano bench.
Welcome to Our Crafty Mom! I’m so excited to share this Sea Shell Shadow Box Table with you! I’m teaming up with some great bloggers to share an upcycled project for this month’s challenge hosted by Gina at The Shabby Creek Cottage.
This shadow box started out as an old piano bench given to me by my sister.
Here is the before:
And the after:
I started by removing the seat with a screwdriver. You know I will totally use the seat on another project!
I then painted it with two coats of DecoArt Chalk Paint in Everlasting. I added some pretty map decorative paper to the base with Mod Podge.
I’m actually going to use this on my deck, but it was raining today so I couldn’t take pictures with it outside. However, it is versatile enough to go indoors or out.
I did add a little dark wax and finished the entire piece with clear wax. I thought it would be nice to add a bunch of sea shells that we have collected through the years.
Shadow boxes are such a great way to display special mementos.

You can even add photos from family vacations. The possibilities with a shadow box are endless! I had a glass top leftover from a table that I refinished and didn’t want the glass on the table any longer.
However, I knew I would use it on something else. Never get rid of those glass tops because you can always repurpose them! I added glass bumpers to the corners to keep the glass steady.
