Easy Bathroom Makeover
I got to use a new product on this project. FrogTape® Shape Tape™. It is pretty neat stuff. Shape Tape™ is FrogTape® brand’s first edge treated painter’s tape. It comes in 3 fun pre-cut patterns: Chevron, Wave and Scallop. Shape Tape™ is treated with patented PaintBlock® Technology, a super absorbent polymer that reacts with the water in latex paint and instantly gels to form a micro-barrier that seals the edges of the tape, which helps prevent paint bleed. This makes it the best painters tape ever.
What I used:
FrogTape® Shape Tape™
plastic table cloth
What I did:
First, I put the table cloth down to try and contain the mess. I then cut the FrogTape® Shape Tape™ to fit the small shelf I took out of the bathroom. After cutting the strips I needed, I taped them down.
I used the lid of the tape to help press the tape against the surface. Once the entire shelf was taped I was ready to paint.
I had a little sidekick during this project. He was there for moral support. He had his own visions for a project with FrogTape® Shape Tape™.
This shelf was not the best thing to pick to try and paint. I tried using a roller and red paint first. It did not stick. No fault to the FrogTape® Shape Tape™. So, not willing to admit defeat, I re-taped it and grabbed my trusty spray paint.
The spray paint worked like a charm on this faux wood shelf. I sprayed over the FrogTape® Shape Tape™ and then quickly removed the tape. Yay, it worked! Now I had a artsy fartsy shelf to put back in the bathroom. The entire design of the bathroom would be centered around this shelf.
I added a mist of spray paint to the top of the shelf to give it a frosted look. I really wanted to do the entire shelf but my husband said he liked it the way it was. So, I left it.
DIY Children’s Art Display Wall
Since this bathroom now had an artsy shelf we just had to have artwork to hang on the walls. I just happen to have 3 of the best artist living with me, wink. A Child’s Art Wall seemed to be the most practical idea for decorations!
How I made the art gallery wall:
I used plastic hooks, string, clips, and some of the masterpieces my artists have made in the past. I did happen to find frame mats in a box (had no clue where they came from or why I kept them but they came in handy). I cut the artwork to fit the frames. I taped the artwork to the back of the mat. I then hung the hooks on the bathroom wall. I added string and then clipped the children’s art to the string. Now we had the perfect decorations to go with our FrogTape® Shape Tape™ book shelf creation!!
The kids and I just LOVE the new look to the bathroom. They were so excited to show off their artwork to grandma when she stopped by for a visit. I look forward to finding new ways to be inspired by FrogTape® Shape Tape™.
