'Scaled' Bathroom Art & Free Printables!!

I'm back today to share a little more into my fun kids bathroom makeover I showed you at the beginning of the week!!

One of my favorite pieces that I added into the bathroom were some easy DIY art pieces. 
Remember these guys from the reveal? 

I really wanted something fun to add to that long wall & these were just the ticket. 
Can you believe those pretty frames started as these ugly goldish ones? 

I picked all three of them up from Goodwill for a couple of dollars.
Then they got a good spraydown in glossy white. 

I wanted lots of color for the background so I grabbed the ever-growing stack of paint samples I have stashed in my craft drawer and started playing.

(The only way I can bribe little man into going to Lowes with me...yet again... is by telling him he can get more paint cards. He. is. obsessed. ) 

I ended up using some scrapbook paper too because I wanted a bit of pattern mixed in.
I just took my one-inch circle punch and started punching tons of circles.
After I punched about a million of them, I started laying them out on the cardboard backings that were in the frame.
Make sure to overlap them a bit so no cardboard shows, plus it'll make that cool 'scaled' effect!!

I used hot glue to adhere them to the cardboard backing. 
Then I had to come up with something for the middle of the frames. 

I ended up finding nothing I really wanted so, what to do?
Create my own!!
I made three simple bathroom prints in the colors I wanted & attached them to some scrap wood with little furniture brads. 

I love how they added a bit of dimension to them!
They could also just as easily be attached to the middle & then glass put back over it. 
Whatever floats your boat :) 

Honestly, little man doesn't take showers in here so it doesn't get all crazy steamy & wet in here. 
Obviously, when that changes, glass will be needed to protect the poor things. 

But for now, they work :) 

I love, love, love the punch of color & personality they bring into the room! 

Aren't they fun in here??

  1. I really loved your fun bathroom makeover and now appreciate so much the printables! They will definately be making in into my daughters bathroom, I just wish I can decide on a shower curtain!

  2. So cute! Love the signs - and your bathroom! :) Thanks for sharing the printables too!! Sharing this on my page! :)

  3. Cute, cute! The "scales" are really a nice pop of color, so fun!

  4. Love the circles! Hmmm....gotta make something like this.

  5. What a fun project! I love how it turned out!

  6. These are adorable. I {used to} hoard paint chips until my husband told me to use them or trash them. Men... I ended up cutting out a bajillion 1" circles (with a punch of course) and started to collage them but it was impossible to keep them all flat and not from buckling -- I definitely should have used hot glue instead of tacky glue.

    Thanks for a great project.

  7. Hey! Great idea! I'm thinking I could put these signs everywhere in my house for all sorts of things. "turn off the light" "flush" "don't eat that cookie" (that last one is for me)

  8. How fun- yet simple! And what a great way to use those gazillion paint cards lying around. Love it, tweeted it, pinned it, and am doing it!

  9. This is so great! I REALLY like it, and your colour scheme! Great for the bathroom. :)

  10. so cute! thanks for sharing them, I am going to pin this!

  11. I love this idea!! I'd love to have you link this up to Tasty Thursdays on The Mandatory Mooch. It's a new linky party starting today. Hope to see you there. Thanks, Nichi

  12. fun idea. I linked in a pizza made with roast chicken leftovers to Live.Laugh. Rowe's linky party. Have a great week.

  13. Hi There! I'm new to your blog and have been enjoying it! Thanks for sharing the printables! I've been looking for something like this to help spruce up our bathroom. However, the link for the 'brush your teeth' jpeg takes me to my blogger sign in, not the spot to download. The other two worked. Is there something I'm doing wrong? Thanks again for sharing!


Reading your comments makes my day!!! I'd love for you to leave me some love and make me smile :)
