Our upstairs bathroom definitely had an ’80′s feel. After painting light fixtures, papering with wainscotting wallpaper (and then painting the wallpaper), sewing a window covering, purchasing new towel holders, shower curtain, towels and rugs, the last item needed was wall art. This was a simple DIY project using 1005 Design metal backsplash in tile pattern with stainless finish.

phrase printed on transparency film
Determining what to put on the transparency was probably the most time consuming. This bathroom is used by our college age children and guests. The phrase couldn’t be gender specific (Good morning handsome!) or too cute (Hello Sweetie). “Start each day with a smile” seemed appropriate and a good message to see each morning. I printed the phrase on transparency film.
The next step was to cut the panel by scoring several times. Then cut the film to fit the panel.
The glue does mar the finish so glue where you will be covering with ribbon or another decoration. Next cut your ribbon the length and width of each side and attach to the back of the panel. The final step is to attach another length of ribbon for hanging.
Total DIY project time for this was art was about an hour. Well worth the time to add a personal touch to any room.
