I had a super productive Sunday. Usually I reserve Sunday for thinking about all the things I need to do and then not doing them. Well, not only did I get in a 10 mile run with Michelle, I also crossed off almost everything on my To Do list, including that DIY project and the Goodwill pile on my floor. I decided to tackle the DIY project first since I knew it wouldn’t take long. The only other project I’ve done was that necklace rack, and I’m not even sure that counts as DIY. (Does it?)
I’ve had this big, blank wall in my bathroom for two years. So boring. (Oh, these pictures are not in black and white by the way, that’s just the color of my bathroom.)
I’ve wanted to hang something there for a long time but I can never find something I like that’s affordable and not a pain in the ass to hang. I found inspiration for this project from something I pinned on Pinterest. So, I spent Saturday looking for the materials and I came up with this:
Three white 8 x 10 frames from Joann Fabrics for $7.19 each (on sale 60% off ).
And three fabric quarters from Joann for $1.99 each.
I started by using the paper in the frame as my guide to cut the fabric.
I wasn’t sure how much fabric I needed, but I could have filled four frames with one quarter of fabric, so I definitely bought too much.
Once I was done cutting the fabric to size, I ironed out the wrinkles, and put them into the frames. Super easy.
Now my wall looks slightly less boring for only $27.54.
Now that the frames are on the wall, I feel like I could have gone one size bigger. Also, I’m not totally sold on the fabric. I really like the middle one but the other two were the best of what Joann had that matched my bathroom. I really wanted to find something with a little yellow in it, but had no luck. So I have a feeling I’ll be changing these out when I find something I love.
How many of you are thinking, “that is the most boring colored bathroom ever?”
