As you’ve seen before, we really like to put fun artwork in our bathrooms. Think about it: It’s the one room in the house, most people will visit so why not give them something to look at? (Bonus: We’ve never had anyone drop a phone in our toilet at a party. They’re too busy looking at the random art hanging on the walls!) The thing about art in the bathroom is that it’s subject to moisture and mildew. So I suggest a 3 minute frame that’s quick and fun.
This is a lady from the Lower East Side that I cut out of a magazine years ago. There was just something about the pointing (and mocking) that I had to save. Fast forward to our current bathroom that was sorely in need of a little tongue-in-cheek, and she now hangs above the toilet where she points and laughs at everyone who visits.
You’ll need 3 things:
paper with a pattern (I collect old sheet music. When it’s no longer usable, it’s perfect for craft projects.)
a picture you’ve cut out from a magazine (remember: Nothing too precious.)
a frame with glass
First, pull together a pattern for the background and then an image to be the focal point. If you’re hanging this in a place where moisture isn’t a factor, choose whatever you like. But if you’re making something seasonal (like this Christmas gallery wall) or a fun piece to hang in the bathroom like me, use scraps that are easy to switch out.
Lay the glass over your pattern and cut the paper to that size. The glass acts like a ruler!
Use a piece of double-sided tape in the center of your layering image. This will keep it from sliding around under the glass.
Note: If you’re using a photo that’s more precious: use acid free tape!
Finally clip the frame together. That’s all there is to it!
