Well, I've update the 'theme' in the kid's bathroom
from duckies to
The kids picked out the underwater theme-
Target had everything they liked-
from the curtain, towels, and rugs.
(The bathroom didn't need a new paint job
so I helped them pick something that would match the blue walls!).
Okay, that was easy,
the craft part was taking the shelf I had and making it match.
I painted it white and then wanted to add the
characters from shower curtain
to the shelf to bring it all together.
So, I painted the fish from the bathroom rug onto it.
I am NOT an artist-
but my children think I am!
They were so excited watching me paint their
favorite characters onto the shelf.
Here's how I did it.
First, I took pictures of the specific animals
they wanted me to paint.
I think this octopus is soooo cute!
(I painted him without the eye-patch).
How cute is this clam?!
Then I lightly drew the characters onto the shelf
and began to paint them in.
These are the paint I used.
(and there's my couffee cup not too far away!)
Here's my daughter painting on a canvas
while I painted the shelf.
So, here it is!
Nothing great. Nothing original. Nothing really creative.
But my kids are so proud and they love it-
it makes it worth it =)
On the sides I painted six fish- one for each of my children-
the little ones chose which fish represented them!
