My husband recently updated our small bathroom and, once the walls were painted, neither of us were liking the color. It is a pale blue and the color just looked blah. Why is it that the paint color always looks so much better on that small paint chip then it does on a wall? We thought maybe once the new vanity was in, along with the towel bars and other accessories, it would look better. But, because I really wanted one of those white waffle weave shower curtains, the room was going to need a pop of color.
I decided to see if I could paint something with color that might make a nice distraction from those blue walls. I started with a bit of collage from a vintage bookkeeping journal. Next, using an old store card, I randomly scrapped on acrylic paint in reds, blues and yellows and white. I scratched into the paint in some areas. I used a mini bubble wrap (love the mini ones!) to pick up some of the yellow paint and then stamped it onto a few places in the painting. Using a textured foam roller, I lightly rolled some red paint over a few areas. I love that this came together so quickly!
The lighting isn’t good enough in the bathroom to get a good picture of it on the wall. This is a picture I took of it laying on a white poster board. I do love how it looks on the wall though, and it really does break up all that light blue paint and adds a nice punch of color.
