Bathroom signs are so fun, especially when you can personalize them for your family. Our downstairs bathroom is decorated with old pictures of London, so I thought a sign with Dapper young gents on it would be ideal.
Here is one version that can be printed in parchment color. I printed mine in black and white on parchment paper.
Once again, I found a perfect graphic on the Graphic Fairy's blog, found here. Her stuff is so appropriate for the age of my home; it is always the first place I search.
I actually blocked out what is written on our family's sign as it is kind of personal. Hope you don't mind.
Since I wanted the sign to look like an old advertisement, I tea stained a sheet of parchment colored paper. When it was dry, I printed the graphic on it.
Using an Exacto knife, I carefully cut out the men on the top of the design and then glued it to a piece of scrapbook paper that already had old advertisements printed on it.
The frame is actually a shadow box with a cushioned back to pin into. Perhaps I will look for some old tie-tacks and tie bars to embellish the sign.
Now, I want a great big sign for my bathroom that says, The Lavender Tub! Hmmm.......Graphics Fairy, got any great old tub pictures up your sleeve?
Thanks for stopping by,
