The other night I worked on a project I have had in my head since the end of February. As you may or may not know, I recently moved into a charming 1920's apartment, with it's ups and it's downs. We have a few challenge rooms - mainly a very small kitchen and bathroom. And while Apartment Therapy is rocking the small spaces, my tiny bathroom (4x6 foot) was pretty hard to make a plan for.
One thing I know is that I love peacocks, and for some reason, the baby blue tile in the bathroom whispered to me: "Make me a bird..."
So I made an Inspiration Piece to tie the room together. Step 1: Chai? Check. Cat? Check.
Step 2: Gather supplies (distressed wood frame, gold tissue paper and two peacock feathers)
Step 4: Cut tissue to fit frame (as you can see, I went with the crinkled look...)
I put it in the bathroom, to see how it looked. It being such a small space, I could only get the top of the toilet into the pic...:
Many of these steps are no-brainers, but I wanted to share how easy and cheap this project was. It took me about 45 minutes and though I spent $20 on my supplies (I splurged on the frame...) this could have been a $10 or less project. The bathroom is far from over, but having the Inspiration Piece makes the room feel more vibrant and lived in, as well as gives me something to do while I floss...
