The lowercase and I were home this week, alone and sick. I saw a lot of this room and realized that I never followed through and showed the pictures of the lowercase's bathroom after I finished painting.
Initially, I was going to stencil seaweed on the wall but found that the stencils didn't work as well as I had hoped. It was, obviously, a large stencil that just didn't work well. I transferred it to poster board, used a razor to cut out the stencil and then just loosely held it against the wall and traced it with a pencil. However, I didn't like the look the stencil gave on it's own, so when I got out the artist brushes, I sort of painted them freehand -- the stencils became nothing more than a very rough guideline for size and placement.
The curtain was just a remnant I bought at the fabric store and ironed a seam in with fusable tape. All in all, I think it turned out to be rather fabulous. At any rate, I am impressed with myself.
And one last thing -- I still haven't been able to frame the painting I did in college for over the towel bar. Anyone have any clue where I can find a cheap 12x18 frame, preferably in the same color range as the frames on the Rainbow Fish prints I bought at Target?

The vanity. Note the stuffed turtle from Finding Nemo beside the kleenex -- The lowercase insists that it be in the bathroom.
