My girls and I had so much fun fluffing up their bathroom this week with Mod Podge monogram letters! I’ve always thought a jack-and-jill bathroom for them would be so fun, so when my husband picked this house where they had their rooms joined by a bath I was pretty excited to fluff it up. (They sleep so that they can see each other through the bathroom each night – I love that!)
When we were picking colors for our new house I stuck with Sherwin Williams Rice Grain throughout most of the house, and picked this Sherwin Williams Sea Salt in our office and dining room, our bedroom, and their bedrooms and bathroom. I love the Sea Salt color, and almost wish I’d painted it throughout the entire house!
Starting with basically good bones for this room made my job way more penny pinched. (If you’ve got a bathroom that needs some TLC, just a little paint on the walls and even the cupboards can make such a difference!)
Here’s our before pic (taken from my iPhone so that I could stand far enough away!)
And here’s the after picture, taken this morning again from my phone (the light was bad, but you get the idea!)
Other than the expense of the shutters (we had those put in this week and love them, they’re not all that penny pinched but it’s one of those reasons clipping coupons is worth it to me!), the only other things we changed were adding a few fun crafts. Here’s what we did . . .
At Hobby Lobby, we stocked up on basic supplies to make the monogram letters for the walls. Here’s what we used (I had most of it already at home which definitely helped my cost, but a lot of it goes so far!):
- Mod Podge
- White paint so the letters would be white on the sides of the initial
- Large wooden letters $9.09 each after 30% off sale at Hobby Lobby
- Foam Paint Brushes
- Paper plates for paint
- Scrapbooking paper (we used this pack – on sale 50% off at Hobby Lobby for $9.99)
- Large ribbon (we ended up only using the Chevron ribbon pictured above – on sale 50% off at Hobby Lobby for $1.99)
- Total = $30.16, and I’ll have plenty of scrapbooking paper and ribbon leftover to use for other projects!)
(I chose a few coordinating papers and then lined them up prior to cutting.)
Once the paper was cut, we double checked to make sure it fit before using mod-podge to adhere it to the initial
Then the girls covered their letters in mod podge
(this was their favorite part)
Then we glued the paper down and let it dry before gluing the ribbon in the middle
I used some extra scrapbook paper to make these simple pictures to hang ~ I already had the white frames (those frames that I bought years ago on sale were the best purchase!)
All done, and so much better for just a few dollars!
