I'll show you the progress-pics in this post, but I will warn you: lots and lots of pictures! Ready?
This is how it all started:
You can see here how small it is. It's not very easy to work in a small space like that, and taking pictures is even worse.
started out with yellowish - orange-y colours
adding some greens and blues
and finishing it off with red. All the colours I used in this toilet are used somewhere else in the house, except for the red.
adding details with stencils and stamps
it's a small toilet, but it sure takes some effort before all the walls are covered ...
adding some text as well (you know me... always have to add quotes everywhere ;-) )
I started out wanting to fill the walls with flowers. But then I started seeing all these faces in the marks, so I thought I might just start with a few....
and some animals as well...
not forgetting the flowers :-)
I have been working on and off in this toilet for about 6 months, and in the meantime we got a new toilet, so in the later pictures this image isn't visible as well anymore. Which I kinda regret.
okay, so far we've had the in progress pictures. Now I'm starting with the images how they are now (and how they will probably remain)
corners are a bit hard, and he's getting the foot of one of the other images in his face. Oh well ...
this is the part above the door
ventilation still needs to be installed ...
Well, that's it! Some people probably recoil in horror when seeing this, but I had fun doing this, and if I get tired of it I just take a paintbrush and go over it. Easy as that, right!?
But for now these creatures can stay :-) This must be the biggest project I've taken on, and in the end I really had enough of it. The middle of the walls is fun to do, but the corners and the low and high parts are really difficult. The toilet is so small you can't put a ladder in there, so in order to reach the higher parts I stood on the toilet lid. And sure enough, just a few weeks after we had a new toilet, it went crack, and I found myself with my feet in the water .... So in case you're thinking of doing something like this: don't stand on the toilet lid!.
I love it when I need to go to the toilet at night. I just take a small flash light, and it is as if I'm sitting in a kind of dark but friendly forest, surrounded by beings that protect me :-)
Okay, that's enough for today! I'll be linking this to Paint Party Friday, just click on the link to see some wonderful creations. I'll be finishing my post, as always, with some funnies:
And last but not least:
Thanks for your visit! Hope your day is going great, and your weekend will be filled with joy.
See you next week ♥ ♥ ♥
