the ladies' room

Despite moving into my new apartment and posting absolutely nothing within the past four months, I thought I’d start with one of my most unexpectedly lovely projects—the ladies room.

My tiny powder room has an unfortunate set of purple tiles that I could not figure out how to match. Instead I made an attempt to distract the eye as much as possible, and it may have worked. When entering my pint-sized potty room covered in metallic gold polk-a-dots, the last thing anyone seems to comment on is the dreaded purple tile. Mission accomplished? I'd like to think so. 

The entire project cost less than $10 and involved one baking potato (carved into a circle for the stamp), a bottle of Martha Stewart craft paint, painter's tape a ruler and pencil to mark the pattern. And the idea came from Pinterest (of course), a few of my favouite pins below!
