Art Project

While Ryan was working on his homework today, I decided to go on a mini shopping trip to TJ Maxx and Homegoods. I could visit these stores multiple times a week... I love myself a deal! Today I purchased a beach towel that was priced at $10, but when I got to the register it came up at $1.... Score!! It was the only one I could find too, or I would've purchased more.

I also decided to buy some wall art for my bathroom. I have a fish/seashell shower curtain and blue rugs in it, so I got this piece.

I'm not a huge fan of the washed out/chipped/rustic/not sure exactly how to classify it "look," but it was inexpensive and I figured I could work with it. I came home to show Ryan and he suggested that I paint it. BINGO! I love bright colors that pop out, so I got my paint set and brushes out, and got to work.

After mixing several colors to come up with the right shades, I am loving my finished project. I'm still deciding if I should get some sparkly paint or glitter to add to it (I love shiny things too!!) but I think I am going to keep it as is for now. Ryan has promised to get it hung this week. I'm having trouble believing that the weekend is almost over, but I did have a very relaxing day and suppose I can manage to get through this week at work. I'm already looking forward to my day off Wednesday and to next weekend!
