For awhile, I’ve been contemplating changing up the art that we have in the bathroom: specifically this picture:
Rewind a little bit: When Hurricane Sandy hit, my Gramp’s house was flooded really badly. So, the Fireman and I went up one afternoon to help him clean up (and take possession of all of the old family photo albums that thankfully hadn’t been affected by the water), and I found this old box full of letters between my grandparents from when they were dating all the way until my Nannie was pregnant with my Mom. My Gramp was stationed in Japan (Navy man all the way), and I loved reading the letters where they referenced my Mom as “Bambi,” and my Nannie fretted about moving to California by herself, while pregnant. Anyways, my Gramp didn’t want the letters, and God bless the Fireman for taking them from the house and stashing them in my car. This quote is from one of them to her in August of 1951.
While I still loved the quote, I didn’t love the presentation, so I popped the old one out and popped this new one in:
As far as the yellow backdrop, I simply painted the cardboard backing that came with the frame and then stuck the paper right onto it. It’s just the right amount of color for the little nook, and I am super excited about it!
Another quick color punch:
I hang my hair dryer off the counter via a purse hook, and it may have accidentally exploded apart last week when I dropped it, so I gave it a quick coat of spray paint to make it look a little more intentional and a little less purse hook.
And because I love y’all, I’m including a printable version of the quote that I made up! All you have to do is click below on that link and then download it when it pops up! I would love to see what you do with it!
