After the powder room was finished yesterday I couldn't stop thinking about artwork that would go in there. I had decided I wanted simple, pretty line drawings as to not compete with the mirror and grasscloth. I scoured Etsy but came up short.
Then I had the idea to just make my own! I could probably have tried to free hand some, but to be honest that takes time (for me at least).. time I do not have. So I took the short-cut route.
I found these beautiful images on Vintage Printable. (I love Vintage Printable.. all the images on their site are royalty free so you don't have to worry about copyright infringement. Phew!)
Aren't they beautiful?? I love how the prints include the root systems. That was my favorite part. (I actually printed these first to try them in the bathroom but the cream image was lost up against the tan grasscloth. I needed something white).
I had vellum laying around from our wedding, so I took the vellum and used it as tracing paper to trace out the image. Here is an action shot taken with my iPhone:
After I was finished, I put the vellum against a plain white piece of paper. You can't really tell the sketches are on vellum unless you look really close.
And the final product:
I love how they turned out! It looks like I spent a lot of time on them, but I didn't :)
I had these frames laying around and they look really cool up against the grasscloth.
The best part- this entire project cost me $0 because I had everything laying around!
