The big white wall behind my big white tub which I love to soak my big white body in was just calling out for a big white-lettered canvas.
I had a big huge canvas with with big ugly pastel flowers on it that I'd nabbed at a garage sale for a not so big price that would be perfect.
I did a little mixing of royal blue mistinted paint and black to get a dark navy. Then I enlisted the help of my kids to help me come up with words that were associated with taking a bath. I excluded most of their words since they came up with "naked, cold, slippery, etc".
I just love stencils!!! You can get packs of the cardboard letters for so cheap and in so many different fonts and sizes. I will never do subway art on a canvas this big again, however! It took my impatient self just way to stinkin' long to cover this thing! And I totally ran out of words by the end and almost had to resort to the words my kids thought up aforementioned!
Someday, I will have a beautiful rug, but for now, it's the shag one that I've got on hand. I love that this old clawfoot tub was already restored when we bought the house!!! One less thing for me to do! And it's beautiful. I haven't decided if I'll paint the bottom outside of it yet. Any thoughts?
Until next time,
have a hot bath and see you soon!
