A little bit of decor in my master bath

So I have this fun little alcove in my master bath where the bathtub is. Kinda boring, right?

I started with this window that I had purchased for $1 at a yard sale. It was white and I spray painted it black. Kind of a little boring by itself.
I was over visiting Trey and Lucy awhile back and saw this cute idea. And what do you know.... a few weeks later, I found this wreath at a yard sale for $2! I totally knew what to do with that!

On the wall above the towel rack, I was thinking of doing some vinyl of some sort. But you know how much I love wood and all of my wood crafts.... So what I did instead, was I used my Cricut and the Storybook cartridge (which I borrowed from a friend in July and really need to return). I cut the little bird swirly thing out as big as I could do it.... 12x24. Used that as a pattern and cut it out of wood. It's fun to have a nice black silhouette but actually have some dimension to it. By the way, I will be selling these at the Seedlings boutique coming up in a couple of weeks!!! Or, you could buy one from me directly if you're interested, just send me an email at anisascholes@gmail.com

And here's the semi-final product. I'm thinking it needs a little color, so I'll probably get some ribbon to add to the wreath and what-not. Leave a comment and let me know what you think!

  1. I think it looks fabulous! I LOVE the idea of using the Cricute to cut out the bird. How clever!

    However, I was thinking that with all the tans and blacks that some RED would look fabulous. I think it would give it a nice punch and add some color that you are looking for.

  4. I might just sand the black paint a little on both projects, to make them a little more distressed. But I do like the idea of adding some red or maybe a dark pumpkin color! I need you to come over & fix my master bath!

  6. Color is always a good thing! Maybe you could even change the accents in the wreaths for each holiday or season.....hmm...or is that too much work??
