Hubby and his dad remodeled this room right after he moved in, while we were still dating. So for some reason, I didn't think about putting up any decorations until just a few months ago. It's just your standard bathroom. I dream about the little changes I can make someday down the road to make it special :)
I love those walls full of embroidery hoops filled with awesome vintage fabric, so I tried to recreate that on one wall.
I'm not thrilled with the fabric, but I'll work on that in the future. I'd like for it to have more of a vintage feel. But for the other wall, I have to have something lightweight, because the pocket door frame is right there, so no big nails or screws. I thought about just doing a really big, oval hoop that I saw at Hobby Lobby with fabric. But then, I was inspired by these, which are all over Pinterest.
Love! So simple, but still so much impact! So I made my own.
I started with a 16"x20" oval canvas from Hobby Lobby, a package of wood letters for each of our initials, and a package of foam scrapbook stickers (I just love that font!).
I was going to use all wood letters, but it turned out to be a much better deal to get the scrapbook stickers, which were half off. They're all glittery, but that didn't make much difference for this project.
I usually just eyeball lining things up, but I knew that if a single letter was crooked on this thing, it would drive me crazy. So I took the time to measure and line things up using masking tape.
I tossed around a lot of ideas for the wording, but absolutely fell in love with just the word "wholehearted." It really sums up what I love most about our relationship, that we are devoted to loving each other with everything we have. Wholehearted.
So the foam letters were stickers, but I had to hot glue the larger wood letters to the canvas. You wouldn't think it would be hard, but I had to glue the B like three times. But it's on there now. Mostly.
Now, the room is mostly creams, so I wanted to add some color, rather than white. I used some spray paint I've been using on just about everything right now, Rustoleum's Slate Blue Satin. It only took one coat, then just a little touch up. Awesome!
It looks so pretty! I think it may need some ribbon to finish the edge. You can see the staples, and it kind of bugs me. I'll work on that, but I like it better than the empty space!
