While shopping at the Cape Cod Factory Outlet I came across this beautiful stepping stone that I just had to buy! Although I wasn’t sure exactly how I was going to use it, it just really fit into what I was trying to do with my home… and although I would have liked to pick up several of them I was trying to stay on a decorating budget, so I bought one.
The stepping stone is made of resin. The stone itself is circular and edged in a braided rope design. In the center of the stone is a raised clam shell, detailed with ridges and a nice realistic coloring. The seashell appears to be lying in the sand and is surrounded by other shells, a couple of star fish and a sand dollar.
The entire design looked more like art than a garden paving stone… and as it turned out that is exactly what it ended up being.
Believe it or not I hung this stone up on my bathroom wall.
It looks right at home on my bathroom wall and fits in perfectly with the décor that I selected for that room… so as it turned out although I wanted a half dozen of these, one was all I really needed.
Although I purchased this stone nearly 10 years ago, it has hung on the wall almost the entire time so I cannot rate it for weather resistance or skid resistance. Since the stone is resin and has many raised parts I am thinking that it may be slippery when wet. The color looks like it is actually in the resin other than being painted onto it, so I would think that it would weather well outside.
