This summer my husband has been traveling a bunch for work. It’s given me some extra time to check off projects from my to-do list. I have a long running list in my phone of projects I’d like to do in my house. It’s probably kind of weird but I love lists.
I wanted to replace the photos above the girls’ towels in their bathroom. I had stuck some photos up there when we moved in just because there was already a nail there and they were pictures I already had. It didn’t look great.
This bathroom altogether kind of makes me cringe but my girls love it. When we looked at the house originally it had a hot pink, black, and light pink Paris theme. Black and light pink everywhere–and tons of decals. I’m just not a decal fan. Sorry to be a decal snob..I just hate them. There I said it. But when you’re moving to a new house anything that your kids are excited about is a plus and they loved the house with the pink bathroom. So we made a compromise to keep 2 decals instead of the 45 that were in there (ok there weren’t really 45 but there was probably 12).
I toned down the shower curtain to a mostly white one with white towels, got rid of the paris drawer pulls and did silver pulls. So next was replacing the photos above their towels. The girls wanted something with glitter!
I had 2 16″x20″ canvases left over from other projects, we went to the store for glitter, spray glue, and cardboard letters.
We started on the letters with the same process.
I tried to hot glue the letters to the canvas…that wasn’t the best idea…they fell off and dumped tons of glitter everywhere.
You really can’t see the thread unless you’re looking for it.
The girls were thrilled with their project and we got to work on one together so mom liked that 😉
If I were to do it over I would have used the large glitter chunks on the letters as well. The girls really wanted to the powdery glitter for their letters but the texture didn’t look as good as the background in my opinion. And I wouldn’t have used hot glue that first time to attach the letters…so much glitter fell…
