BeYOUtiful

Weird things happen to my thought processes when I live on my own…. I look to save the most amount of money possible… and end up buying everything impulsively.

Which is why I now bring you the DIY Bathroom Art! Again, thank Pinterest – I saw this adorable art weeks ago, and tracked it down to Etsy

Now, not to poo-poo (get it?! bathroom art! ok, fine…. Piss off… ūüėČ ) on AHalOfAGirl’s lovely artwork- her’s is far better & more detailed than I would ever attempt.¬†I just… This morning I couldn’t justify spending $20 on a new coffee maker and mine’s leaking all over the floor… there was no way I was paying $25 for a piece of canvas art.

I thought… hmmmm, I bet I could totally make that. Yes, yes I did… Trip number 4 to Wal*Mart I went.1420255979408

Next it was time to put my lack of artistic abilities to the test. But honestly, if it came out really terribly, I did have a blank canvas to start over on….

Yes, that’s How to Train Your Dragon 2 getting ready to play on the TV. I pleasantly surprised myself here today. First with a completely overwhelming storage unit, and now with some halfway decent painting skills. Its okay to clap. I’ll wait…..

I did cheat a little bit – I drew it on with pencil first, that’s why you can see some smudging where I erased and re-drew… whatever. So here’s the final product hanging in the entrance to the Ministry of Magic.
