Hello friends, Happy Five Minute Friday! Before we get the weekend started, I want to share with you what I’ve been working on in our on-going master bath makeover, as well as some tips for hanging art in the bathroom.
If you haven’t seen the total transformation of our vanity light fixture on RoadKill Rescue, check that out as soon as we’re done here, ok?
So…I’ve been working on a gallery wall for the empty space above our tub. But hanging art in bathrooms can be tricky.
Let’s talk about what I have so far, and I’ll give you my tips.
Tip #1: Don’t hang priceless art in the bathroom. It’s likely to get a little damp, and that could ruin actual art. I have here a framed photo that I took of an accent pillow on our bed. (see my post about turning your photos in to wall art for more info)
I snapped the photo, uploaded it to my Shutterfly app and ordered an 11×14 print. The frame was $30 with a coupon from Michael’s and it came with the mat. I got a statement size piece for under $40, AND I can switch out the print easily with the seasons if I get a hankerin’.
Tip #2: Hang items that can easily be cleaned. Delicate or intricate art will get dusty, and sticky from hairspray, perfume and the like. All of these items can be dusted and wiped with a damp cloth as needed.
Need more ideas? The number art is just a piece of cardstock with the number two stenciled on. It’s the same #2 I used for our farmhouse style TV tray tables last week. The B is from an entire alphabet of free printable chalkboard letters. These pieces were cheap and are easily replaced if they don’t hold up to the bathroom environment.
The ampersand is MDF spray painted with chalkboard paint, and you might remember the painted flower plaque from another Five Minute Friday.
None of these projects took more than five minutes, and they are perfect for a bathroom. I might add a few more items, but I’m happy with this gallery wall so far.
Baskets, trays, and plates are also great items for bathroom walls.
What do you think? What creative items have you used as art in your bathroom?
