DIY bathroom and wall decor ideas on a budget. I’m participating in the look for Less challenge put on by Yami at the Latina next door in her co-host this month is Linda at faith.Chick 777 be sure to check out their channels listed in the description as well as the playlist. For this challenge, let’s get started. My first project is inspired by this anthropology art piece with watercolor circles.
I use this 8 by 10 canvas from Dollar Tree and some different colored acrylic paints, which I watered down to get the watercolor effect, and so all I did was mix a few different shades of the browns and greens and gray to make different colored circles.Now you could decide to make your circles smaller and closer together to really get the effect of the original art piece, but I wanted. I was okay with the spacing that I used for mine and I really was not going for perfect circles here while you’re watching me paint circles.I thought I’d, mention that I am adding some digital art prints to my Etsy shop. When you watch this video, I’ll likely have two designs on there: some abstract and watercolor designs in earth tones. So if you want to check that out, my Etsy shop will be linked in the description box, .So as you’ll see here, no two circles are the same color and I think that really adds to the dimension of this piece. and once everything was all dry, I used my metallic gold paint to paint the border right around the canvas frame just for a finished look for just a dollar.I love how this turned out and it’s. Just so easy to recreate this watercolor and abstract looked, which is so trendy right now: [, Music ], my second bathroom decor piece is also anthropology inspired, and I knew I had just the piece to recreate this look.I had this decorative knob from Hobby Lobby and it’s been in my stash for a while, along with this hook from another decorative piece, and this scrap 1 by 2 piece of wood, and this is how I’m, going to Attach the 3 to create a towel hook.
So I used my drill to create a hole at the bottom of the wood piece and at the center, and once I knew my pieces would fit. I use wood glue in the hole to secure the pieces in there and it is go ahead and paint the wood piece with the hook in it before I attached the knob [ Music ].I also added some gold detailing to this piece with the same metallic paint, and I did go ahead and seal this with some Mod Podge, so that the paint would not chip [, Music, ]. And here it is in my half bathroom, which I’m almost finished with, and I just think it looks so much better than those standard chrome towel.Hooks number three is inspired by this West Elm stoneware vase, which they have in different sizes. So I started with these two Dollar Tree vases and spray-painted them with this cream color by rust-oleum, and I always clean glass with alcohol before painting it.This just helps the paint to stick better and once my paint was all dry, I used Mod Podge to apply some white sand from Dollar Tree to just parts of each face. You could also try to get the stone effect by just laying paints using different colors, but I really wanted the texture on these faces so that’s, why? I’m using the sand, so this is totally optional, so I taped around each face to get the shaping that I wanted and I painted the Mod Podge on with the brush and I started by dipping it into the sand.But I found that that was me making it really thick. So with the second one I started just to sprinkle it on with my hands: [, Music ], and so once again I’m mixing paint colors to get the color that I want and I used this mix at first and then I went back In once, it was dry and just layered in different shades to get the look that I wanted, and these are also going in my bathroom.But these would be perfect on like a console table or living room. Coffee table pretty much anywhere in your home, and I think this look is very neutral and it would work in pretty much any space.
This fourth DIY, is a project that can be made using called Dollar Tree products, and I’ve. Wanted to recreate this look for a while. The succulent arrangement like wall shadow box type of decor and this shadow box frame from Dollar Tree worked perfectly for this.So, as you can see, I removed the backing and all the contents of this, but be careful with this glass because I did break mine. So I had some scrap foam and I cut that to size glue that in with hot glue and to cover up the white so that the it would not show through.I added some of this green moss using my hot glue as well. So the succulence I use were all from previous projects and they were not the same color. I wanted to make them a bit more cohesive.So I mix some more paint, and I made this like mossy green, color and kind of muted down some of the more colorful succulents after figuring out the arrangement I wanted for these, I cut down all the stems and glued them on with the hot glueI’m gonna, be adding my succulent arrangement to my gallery wall, but you’ll, see in a minute.This can also be used as tabletop decor, because it’s a flat surface on the bottom. I did add some hangers to the back and a piece of felt just so it wouldn’t scratch the wall, but you could easily just add, felt and use it like this.My fifth and final DIY is inspired by this Kirkland’s framed metal flower and I use another one of Dollar Tree signs that I’d used previously. One of these Dahlia flowers, some more gold, metallic paint and some white acrylic paint.
So I used the white paint to paint the frame and then I took the flour, separated all the pieces and painted each one with a metallic paint, and I did paint these front in the back . If you wanted to make this in a bigger size, Dollar Tree does carry a metal flower stake for outside and that would easily fit into a larger frame and you can easily spray-paint that for the backing inside the frame.I used a piece of this old pillow cover to get that linen look and all I did was cut this to size and attach it with hot glue, . I added this hard coat Mod Podge to stiffen the flour a bit, but just take note that this does not fully cure immediately.It takes a little while so that it’ll harden. But then I just attached each piece of the flour inside the box making sure to add glue to each petal so that it wouldn’t flop. Around now. I know most of my pieces were not the exact size of my inspirations, but that’s.What I love about DIY home decor, you can customize and make things to fit your space and it doesn’t have to be exact.
