I have been trying to finish up the guest bath for some time now… almost 5 years if you want to put a number on it. I have done a few things, like paint half of a wall yellow, add some colored circles and monogram letters for the kids above some dog hineys for hooks. We had a colored shower curtain that I wasn’t crazy about, but it served its purpose for a while….that is until a certain miniature pinscher had a little stand off with a skunk. UGH!! So that was a farewell to the shower curtain. The room started out like this when I started this blog :
It’s a pretty bare bones bathroom. Builder grade mirror, light fixture, and even curtain rods. I really need something to warm this room up and make it feel less bathroom at a local convenient store, and more like the kids bathroom. I like the monogram letters above the towel hooks, so that stays. I am not 100% crazy about the paint anymore, but it will work for the time being. That wall behind the toilet is my focus for this post.
I pulled that shelf down and brainstormed for a while on what I was going to put up there. I had decided that I was going to put something up there that I already have…no shopping for this one. I dug into my craft bin to see what I could find.
I came a across some little wooden letters. I had them for one project or another years ago, and just hung onto them because you never know when you are going to need to put some words somewhere. Really?Am I the only one that does that? Say it ain’t so!
I tried to put some words together that “fit” in a bathroom. I settled on ~wash~rinse~clean. I used some acrylic paints to paint each letter a different color, then used plain on Elmer’s to glue the letters onto a piece of white card stock.
I had some frames that were in use in that bathroom a while back that I spray painted a glossy white. Into the frames went the cardstock and words… and here you go…simple and quick are.
Here are some close ups.. I still need to fill the holes from the shelf.
I have some more ideas in the works.. I happened to run by the Goodwill yesterday and found some fun stuff to see if I can work into the bathroom! This room really needs a nice shower curtain. And there is always the possibility of something happening with that mirror.
Anyone else whip up some quick art lately? Work with any monograms? Maybe you followed a tutorial to the letter? Please share!
