Polka Dots... They make me smile!

Don't you love polka dots? Minnie Mouse has worn them for years!  Polka dots definitely work for her!

So, you've been hearing about my bathroom makeover.  This was my bathroom trash can.
I liked it when the shower curtain was a soft yellow with embroidered rose buds.
These days, I'm thinking polka dots. Do you remember Gobblin' Gus ? He's the inspiration.

So, simply using round stickers, I made a pattern on my trash can.

It took three coats of purple spray paint to get an even color.
The stickers were peeled away to reveal the polka dots!
Yup!  It makes me smile!  Do you think Minnie Mouse would approve?
This lil paint project is being entered in
at Silo Hill Farm.  Hop over there and join the fun!

  3. How fun and easy! Thanks for sharing in the Crafty Cornucopia Challemge!

  4. That's a great idea! But mostly I wanted to say I love your cottage (what is visible in one of your photos) I like older homes (pre WWII), especially Arts & Crafts homes, likely because I grew up in a few that were influenced by the movement. Just wanted you to know I think it's very appealing. ~ Linne

  5. Oh wow! I would have never thought of this. I need to get the right side of my brain thinking.
