I try not to go in my daughters' bathroom too often because when I do, I notice things like...
this...(cue scary music)
(the screws were just removed in this photo)
The switch plate cover was dirty, or so I thought. Once I got it down, it was evident that it wasn't just dirt but mostly rust. I'd love to get all new white plates but in the interim, I Mod Podged.
Attempt #1:I used wrapping paper
Measured and cut to size
Mod Podged it on and exacto-knifed out the holes...
It was too wrinkly looking for my taste because the paper was very thin.
Attempt #2: I used sturdier scrapbook paper
Here's my technique, spread Mod Podge on the cover with a foam brush
Lay the paper over the Mod Podge
Then smooth out all of the bubbles/wrinkles (if only this worked on my face!).
Give it at least two coats of Mod Podge. Once it's dry, cut out the openings with an exacto knife and hang them back up.
It's an improvement for sure but I think the greens are too close to make it pop. I picked the paper because it reminded me of the lemon/lime and apple art that is in the room (from Ikea). The great thing is, I can easily change it out again when I find a paper that I like better.
This project cost me nothing because I had all of the supplies on hand and it was super easy.
This bath is ready for a makeover anyway..here are some of my inspiration photos from Pinterest (follow me here,)
I haven't Mod Podged in awhile, probably since my Pumpkin Jar Luminary project. How about you? Are you a frequent Mod Podger or a once in awhile Mod Podger like me?
