At this point, I just don't want o keep buying more material for wedding craft projects, especially if I can't justify the purchase or know what i'm going to do with it after the wedding. But I really wanted bathroom baskets. I can't tell you how many weddings i've been to where someone spilled something, ripped something, got an unexpected period or didn't plan very well for menstrual issues (ladies you know what I mean. So when I first heard about bathroom baskets, I thought the originator of this idea has to be brilliant as hell.
I however didn't want to buy 2 baskets that I probably not use again. I already have baskets galore at home but none at the right size or shape. Enter my boxes. I found these boxes for $1.99 from Michael's a long time ago and I bought them just because. I do that a lot.
I also had some paint form one of my 2 year old's craft projects but it was too blue. It was royal blue so I bought a small bottle of yellow acrylic pint for $59 and got to mixing, until I got the perfect aqua shade.
I then sanded down 2 glassy brown 5x7 picture frames that I had but was not using and painted them white. I printed my little quote on a 5x7 shimmer piece of card stock and voila.
You can click on any of the images to see them better. And remember my little "butterflies that I didn't know what to do with? Well that's 2 down. About 23 to go. And in case you can't read what written in the bathroom sign:
Should you happen to get in a bind
A rip, a tear or of the spilling kind
Take what you need and leave the rest
so it can be used by another guest
Clean up, spruce up, and you're done
now hurry back and enjoy the fun
