Hey, my sweet friends!
I guess we all agree that decorating can be a challenge sometimes… Odd spaces, ugly elements, and things like that. We have them all in our new rental house. I showed you the pillar in the middle of my kitchen, and the unpleasant bathroom upstairs, and today I’m going to show you the bathroom we have downstairs.
This one is not ugly, it just needs some love and imagination because it is tiny. As we are renting we don’t plan to make big improvements but at the same time, we want to be comfortable.
What the picture doesn’t show is that the white wall is curved! Its round shape makes it difficult to hang a rack for the towels and bathrobes, so I only could think about simple hooks. Ordinary hooks are not too fancy and I had an idea, I could make a stencil and it would look prettier.
This is really easy to do, so here’s what you will need in case you want to make some for your home too. This post contains affiliate links for your convenience. You can read my full disclosure policy here.
The first thing I did was measure where I wanted the hooks to be. We needed different heights to make it easy for the girls.
Then I search for a damask image on the internet and used my Cameo to make a stencil. I tapped it in place.
I prepared an old brush and some paint. I chose Primitive from DecoArt because it’s similar to the color of the walls.
Here’s when the fun began! I dabbed some paint for the first damask. When it was done, I removed the stencil and washed it. Then it was ready to use again and did the same two more times.
It was time to paint the hooks with the same color. I gave them two coats drying between them, and then I applied spray varnish to protect them. I drilled the holes while they were drying.
And here they are!! I also painted the plastic thing that holds the radiator cord, now it’s half an eyesore.
My daughters are happy to have one hook for each one.
The best thing is we can reach them from the shower
I’m so happy now!! Not only they look pretty but we also solved the problem of not having a rack.
I hope you like them too and the idea may help you with your own odds at home. Remember that you can see more DIY projects at the Gallery.
