There have been a couple of things I have been meaning to finish and I finally did tonight with the help of my husband! Love that guy! The first are some frames that I wanted to put on the wall in my kids bathroom above their towel hooks. I took two IKEA frames that I already had, scrapbook paper and stickers that I had, ribbon that I had and picture hooks that we had too.
I bought two 8 x 10 pictures from Shutterfly and that cost $8.00. I chose two pictures of my kids of them in the bathtub. I had to put some color paper behind the pictures because they were not quite 8x10. I used the stickers to place their names and a fun water related word in the upper corners. The ribbon I used to hang from the picture frame hooks. Here is the finished look:
My nine year old son was not thrilled with this and told me I have to take it down when his friends come over! I cannot help it that picture is so fun and silly that I could not resist framing it! I will try my hardest to remember to take it down. It does accomplish my goal of not getting the towels mixed up!
The other project I wanted to work on was painting the shelf in my bathroom again. I posted about this weeks ago but I just didn't like the way the paint looked. I used some weird primer and spray paint. Anyway, I wanted to use the paint I had left over from my pantry(which has really come in handy around my house) to re-paint the shelf. Here is the shelf before the second repaint:
Now here is the shelf after I finished painting it tonight:
It has a more even look. Very happy!
I did a little rearranging but not to much.
I added the big basket at the bottom to hold toilet paper.
I bought this container from The Container Store for cotton balls. A whole bag will fit into this thing! Woo-hoo! I am hopping by putting it on the top shelf with my toner it will remind me to Use My Toner!!
I cannot wait to work on the walls in my bathroom. I am thinking beadboard.
Have a great week everybody!
