Long time, no post! We are looking forward to our February break, and catching up on some projects. Oh wait. That's me.
It's that time folks. That time when I look around and think "eh." I'm not ready to break out new paint colors, but some of my decor needs updating and freshening.
My half bathroom is red. It's not a tiny room, and we have a lot of white trim throughout our house, so it works. The wall across from the sink and toilet needed new art, so I made some.
These were so simple to make, and they look so much more size appropriate than the pictures they replaced.
They were cute, but way too small, and I was getting tired of looking at the little tubs.
This stencil is from Martha Stewart. I taped it down over a canvas that measured 11x17. I used a trowel like tool to smear my textured paint over the stencil. It resembles a crime scene. Ahem.
I repeated the process on the second canvas (same size), I just turned it so it was horizontal.
I had the feeling a few times that paint went under the stencil while I was spreading it out. When I removed it, I saw that I was right, but I liked the way it looked. I think it adds some texture and detail to the design.
When I was done, they went right onto the wall and dried up there. Hey, I'm not messing around over here. Next project in this room? A new window treatment....stay tuned!
