Before I share the entire bathroom reveal, I wanted to show you how I made a nice piece of wall decor for super cheap.
I went to Goodwill and found this botanical print.
I chose this one because it has a nice double mat inside and a good quality wood frame. And it was on sale for $5 – marked down from $8. But we’re not buying it for the print. We’re scavenging the mat and the frame which would cost big money at a craft or framing store.
I removed the backing, and pulled off the print.
I would normally have saved the print – it wasn’t bad! But this one was glued on to the mat and got torn when I pulled it off. No biggie.
Our co-worker and friend Keith was nice enough to print off a photo of Ms. H and my parents, as well as Keith and his wife when they all went to Ireland a few years ago. He printed it in black and white, 11×14, to fit the mat.
I took the mat and frame and grabbed a can of Zinsser BIN Shellac Primer which is oil based – it will cover beautifully. Just be sure to use it outside or in a well ventilated area.
We put it all back together and Dad added some picture wire to the back.
Personal, chic wall art for less than $10!! Big bathroom reveal is next….
