Sea Fan DIY


Today I spend another morning at Mondaymorning market in Amsterdam, and I found Sea Fans there for 4 euros each, i really love the look of them framed in a shadow box or just painted in white, black, grey or coral like in these pictures.

hoi Iris ja op maandag ochtend is er op de noordermarkt de maandagmorgen markt en de lapjes markt. Op ongeveer het eerste eenderde deel van de lapjesmarkt vindt je een man die schelpen verkoopt en die heeft die waaiers. Zeker de moeite waard. Laat me weten of je ze ook gekocht hebt. Kus Chantal

I just came across some of these this weekend.
They certainly add a sense of airiness to any space.

Those are great sea fans! I have one from a vacation and this makes me want to frame mine! Great post. Found your blog from Aubrey's and am now following!

I think sea fans are a timeless decorating piece. I can't believe you found them for only 4 Euros a piece! So lucky.

So great to see someone else loves these as much as I do! I just did a sea fan art project that i posted on the blog. I'm saving some of these for future inspiration for more!
