This piece of CRAP has been bothering me for years. My husband and I bought an awesome statue from Z gallery for $40 about 5 years ago. That's back when we had money pre-layoffs and pre-child.
We had it for about a year before the glass broke in the back due to an unfortunate doggie attack. It had water in it, kind of like a snow globe without the snow.
Because I'm a hoarder, I never threw it away. It has been hanging out gathering dust (as you can see from the picture). My mother is cringing right now.
I took out some aggression and busted the glass thinking I'd just paint it and leave the coral in the center. But, once I started messing with it, it looked really stupid. With a little bit of work , I ended up being able to remove the entire coral piece and had a stand with a gaping divot in the top. It needed something on to fill it.
Originally I thought about just putting a candle in the top. Until, I was in the shower today and had a thought...wonder if I can find a hurricane to fit in the top!!
Drum roll people because seriously you would have thought I had found the cure to cancer I felt so smart.
Well..... yeah I know you're amazed. My obsession for high gloss white really paid off (hint: you'll see more of it later). I found the perfect hurricane. There was only one of these in the store and I was just crossing my fingers it was the right scale. Added bonus: $2.99 on sale! What?
But, wait there's more.
The candle was on sale and I had the large glass beads hanging out at the house. See, I told you I was smart.
