Shell window treatments start by a favorite pastime for many Cape Cod beach lovers. Exploring the beach at low tide leaves miles of sand and it’s treasures exposed.
I’ve found thousands of large clam or quahog shells along the beaches of Cape Cod Bay. Being a firm believer inspiration is everywhere, using these, somehow, to create an uber custom window treatment for a beach house needed to happen.
They look fabulous with the materials chosen for the Cape Cod master bedroom. So beachy!
I design with the idea, now to get ‘r done. Design ideas come easily to me, engineering them is where my innovative husband comes in. (We really do make a great team). We went to our favorite Holden, MA hardware store, Jed’s, to get some hardware. I love the catalog of orderly sliding boxes that hold all of the hardware “stuff”.
This is what we bought. I had the decorative brass posts in my own stash of parts. All of the metal was painted white, the shells were left natural. Super heavy adhesive putty was also used to attach the shells to the hardware.
