Yesterday I had the old feeling sweep over me...you may know what I'm talking about. It usually comes on days where I am a little bored and have too much caffine in my bloodstream. This so-called "gotta do something new around here fast" feeling results from a strange mixture of discontentment and need for creative outlet. It usually manifests itself as sudden urges to rearrange large pieces of furniture or picture frames, etc.
Most of the time, I just move things around a bit...sometimes I venture out to see what the local thrift stores have to contribute to my impulses. Whatever I do, it is usually pretty budget friendly; and yesterday's project was no exception.
I had the idea to stencil in the bathroom...I knew that was cheap and fairly easy. The only thing is, I'm not a big fan of the "country" look...I can appreciate it, but it's not really me. So I headed off to the craft store, found a little dragonfly sponge stamp that cost $1.99 and a bottle of avocado green (to match the 1970's linoleum...kinda cool that the color is back in style) acrylic paint for $.89... and I stamped the afternoon away.
My bathroom looks so happy now! The formerly lomesome and plain cream walls are now full of little green friends!
Ahhhh....sweet indulgence, and for a grand total of $3.00!
