How I made my Bathroom Signs



If you've followed my blog for a while 
then you know just how frugal I am. 
Oh I could have spent the whole $4 and $5 on blank canvases,but I saw some already 
painted on for only 50 cents 
a piece and I was like 
"YES PLEASE"!


Here is what they looked before
 I painted over them.




One was not painted all the way, and the other one was a paint by number kind of thing.
 It didn't break my heart too bad to cover 
the not so perfect art.

One the circus one I painted for colors:
Aqua blue
Silver
Copper
Brown/black

On the larger scenic canvas 
I painted it a a brown black color.


Then I selected my words, and 
cut them onto vinyl adhesive.



I selected this yellow color because I have a lot of it and I never really use yellow.


Then I positioned the wording on my canvas.




And then paint over with the desired paint color.

I got a little help from my daughter and her friend!
I love involving my daughter when I can. Its a great bonding experience, and she loves it.






I let the paint dry over night and then peeled up each letter, exposing the color underneath. 

Kinda wish I had used a ruler. My eye is not the best judge. Sigh...Oh well.

I still love the way they turned out. 
And they are a great addition to my new bathroom!




Thank so much for tuning in!
Until Next Time...

    1. Gotta get it done somehow. In all actuality they slowed me down. But she will always be able to see it in the bathroom and know she helped make it :)
