Hi! Does your bathroom wall need some jewelry?
Would you like to hear how utterly simple it was to get this look? Well, okay, then.
A couple of years ago, I was fortunate enough to visit the Mercado Antiquanta in Lucca, Italy. It fills half the city once a month, and it was heaven. In a strangely domestic mood, my macho husband bargained for and bought these cool antique prints.
Who knew he had it in him? Certainly not me.
So for two years, they've been hanging out in our bathroom...
Nice, but kinda plain? And a little bit small for the space. I had been thinking of going with bigger frames, to fill the wall a little more. But then, suddenly, I thought of this stuff:
Ready-made beaded trim. I found mine at a yard sale, but have often seen it at the dollar store for cheap. You can absolutely buy it at any fabric or craft store, in a million colors and variations.
Here is the tutorial. Ready? First, Scotch tape a piece of beaded trim to the back of your frame, like so:
Wait. That was the entire tutorial! Doncha love it?
Again, here's Before...
And here's After.
Yay. Wall jewelry. Am I crazy? Perhaps. But sometimes a girl can't help it.
