Bathroom Art Wall

Sorry for all the drama! If you’re looking for the fabric flowers post it’ll be up for reals on Monday. It wasn’t quite ready to see the world yet! Hope you enjoy today’s post instead!

You may remember that between my Life is Art project and my thrifted big brass key, the wall above the toilet in my downstairs bath was starting to look a little more interesting.

But there was still a big ol’ blank area waiting to be filled, and things were looking a little unbalanced. I decided to take matters into my own hands and poach some wall art from elsewhere in the house.

At the very top of this picture you can see the lower half of a Degas print in a mustard yellow frame. I ordered it from Etsy a while ago because I was buying something else from the same shop and I wanted to combine shipping. I didn’t really have a place for it in mind and, when it arrived, the area above the dining room bookshelf seemed like a good idea. I did like it there and, at the same time, I think the height probably kept it from getting noticed as much as it deserved. I decided to take it down and move it to the bathroom, where the mustard + blue tones will complement my Life is Art thingamajig nicely.

I also hung up this cute frame I got for $5 at Ikea during our trip to Houston last weekend.

Not sure what I’ll put in it yet, but I really like it here.

I love how the vintage print and scrolly frame play off the super-modern sink basin.

I also like how, even though this arrangement is filled-in enough to stand on its own, there’s room to add more small things down the line if I stumble upon some little whatnot so delightful that it absolutely must hang on my bathroom wall. Now I just gotta figure out what to put in that empty frame. Something from Etsy? Something DIY’d? A photo?

  1. Love it! Maybe a ‘shadow box’ type thing? Movie ticket stubs, airline stubs, something memorable from your wedding/honeymoon?

  2. Black and white photo. Ties in the tile.
