The Little Men's bathroom needed a little aesthetic help. In our recent housing face lift this room was left completely bare and white. I just couldn't have that, but I didn't want to do something major that would be permanent or that would take me a long time to accomplish.
Enter my three favorite things...
my Silhouette (this project can totally be done without it too, just keep reading)
I had these canvases already. They were different sizes and one was flat.
I picked three colors to pull from the new hand towel above...again thank you Target.
Using painter's tape I marked a 1/2" border. I totally eyeball it...most the time it works out for me...wait till the end to see if it did...
Your shape can be done many ways. I cut out a stencil using my Silhouette.
You could also use white vinyl and just make a sticker shape to adhere, like I did here and here.
You can also simply use a sticker or trace your shape onto contact paper.
Place stickers where you would like them. I added a word on the largest canvas.
Spray painting time. Spray a light coat to start. Then you can go back in about 10 minutes and spray a slightly heavier coat. Continue until it has the coverage you want. Be patient. If you aren't and you go all hog wild with the paint there will be some leakage.
Yes I was a little impatient and I sprayed too heavy, too quickly...have I mentioned I am short on time as of late...
After only a couple of hours you can peel of the tape and your stickers.
I know you will have much straighter edges than I do...poor shark and his crooked edges. Even with his askew border I still love him.
They turned out great for a quick afternoon project. They look great in the bathroom. My Little Men totally love them.
