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… 😉 ) 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.
Who knew they sold tiny sleeping humans too!
Here were my supplies:
- 11×14 stretched canvas – (2pack) $5.47
- 8pack stencil brushes – $3.97
- Acrylic Paints in Snow White, Turquoise, and Territorial Beige (I dunno whats up with beige… he’s kind of a dick) $0.50 each
- Larger brush for background color – $1.00
- Double Stuff Oreo’s…. because… DUH. $2.98
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.
And our total comes toooooooooooo…. a whopping $14.92!!! Including Oreo’s, but you can choose to leave those out or swap for your favorite snack when you attempt.
