DIY Bathroom Art

Hey all, I hope you had a fabulous weekend! Our school here in Louisville had Fall break last week so we took the opportunity to visit Red River Gorge, KY and let me tell you it was gorgeous! We stayed in a Yurt, which was new for us and pretty cool! It felt like we were the only ones at the Red River Gorge Cabin Rentals which was perfect!

Yurt

We hiked some awesome trails, this is the view from the top of the Natural Bridge in Natural Bridge State Park, KY. It was breathtaking!

Luckily we didn’t have to hike up to the top, but we took the Sky Lift instead. We did hike back down though… I felt a little like a Billy goat walking down but the walk down was full of beautiful scenery.

We did some other hikes and I took about 200 pictures, I’m hoping to use some in the bathroom as art, seriously what kind of art is “appropriate” for bathroom walls? I have some great foliage and carved stone step shots I’m hoping will work…

In the meantime I had an idea for the shower area of the bathroom (it’s separate from the rest of the room). I used my Silhouette to cut out vinyl for “Lather. Rinse. Repeat.”, making sure that the works were flipped appropriately. I then transferred the vinyl to the back of the glass (I already had the frame and glass on hand), this piece is about 20×14.

This is what it looks like flipped over.

I took it outside and sprayed the back of the glass with a mirror like spray, although I could have sprayed it with any regular spray paint.

This is after I lightly sprayed 4 coats, they dry very fast.

I then removed the vinyl and sprayed the back (now open letters) with gold spray paint.

Here is the finished product.

It was a very quick (15 minutes) project using items I already had on hand and I really like how it turned out! The glass is easy to clean because the paint is on the reverse side of the glass. FYI you can do this project with just about any glass… picture frames would be great!

I hope you guys have a great rest of the week!

Thanks for stopping by!
