Fresh Towels...

Friday afternoon we decided to spruce up our guest bath. Very spur of the moment. Sprucing up meant the following:

  • Painting the vanity

  • New vanity top

  • New faucet for vanity

  • New medicine cabinet

  • Bead board

  • New base boards

  • New shower curtain

I still need to get the new hardware for the vanity before I unveil the project. I do want to show you a little sign I made for the room. When we took down the old medicine cabinet I noticed the shelf (wood) easily came out. So I kept it thinking that surely I could do something with it. Then I thought that it would make the perfect sign. I painted it white.

I then printed the words 'fresh towels $1' on the computer. I traced the words with a pencil on the back of the paper then placed the paper on the wood and traced the front of the letters making an outline of the words on the wood.

I colored in the words with a black sharpie - I was out of black craft paint so I decided to give the sharpies a try - they worked great!!

I sponged a little brown ink (right from the ink pad) onto the board and then stamped the flourish stamp in the two top corners. Sandpapered the edges. And that was it. I am happy with how it turned out. It's just what I had in my mind.

We are down to less than 3 weeks of school and all the craziness that goes with that. We had our last PTA meeting today but still have to meet with the new board one more time to go over some things. Along with that the next three weeks include: 1 hockey tournament for LM, 2 hockey tournaments for the hubby, 1 first communion retreat, 1 first communion, 1 field trip, 1 field day, Teacher appreciation lunch, End of year awards ceremony, out of town company for the first communion and the usual, everyday things I need to do to keep things running at September Acres. I am thrilled that school will be out soon but I am going to be exhausted getting there. So I will be away for a while getting things in order and having some fun. I look forward to revealing the new bathroom re-do when I get back. I know you'll love it as much as I do.

I am linking up to Frugal Friday @ the Shabby Nest,Show & Tell Friday @ My Romantic Home, Transformations & Treasures @ The Pink Postcard,Tuesday's Treasures @ My Uncommon Slice of Suburbia & Swing into Spring @ DIY by Design.


Great re-use of the wood. I usually throw things away too quickly, or have good intentions that end up stored away kudos for executing your idea so quickly! Love the sign! Will it be going back in the same bathroom?
