New Bath for the Boy
After Edward moved downstairs, it quickly became apparent that the uber girly bathroom I had crafted wasn’t going to cut it. Inspired by my post on typography, I opted to go with fonts as a theme for my more masculine bath. The jumping off point was this shower curtain from Target.
Prior to Edward’s move downstairs, the bath had been rarely used and therefore a little neglected when it came to decor. I wanted to add some art to the room, but wanted to spend very little money. I came up with a no cost solution.
I had these canvases lying around. I had picked them up at Target when they were 75% off, and they never really worked anywhere I tried them. But they would provide an awesome foundation for my freebie art project.
When I think of fonts, the first thing that pops into my head is newspaper. So, I took our Sunday paper (after we had finished reading it of course) and wrapped it around the two canvases. I held the paper in place with tape. The canvases are fine underneath, so I can always go back to them if I want. In the meantime, though, I have free art.
I picked up the “D” from JoAnn fabrics for $9. It was paper mache; I just painted it with some black paint we had around the house. So, for $9 this corner is now quirky and fits the room.
There were still a few touches to add.
I picked up a custom vinyl wall cling from Belvedere Designs.
And, I picked up a clock from Target so we could keep track of time while giving Edward his bath.
I think it is perfecto for a little boy’s bath. What do you think?
