I can’t take all the credit for this DIY project. I was at my friend Michelle’s new house, a few years ago, for the first time and was about to ask where her bathroom was, when I realized that she had a sign on a door that simply stated “restroom.” I thought, what a great idea.
In February 2016, I bought my first home. I have a half bathroom downstairs in my living room and every time I had company over, they would ask me where the bathroom was. When I would show them, they would laugh and say, they thought it was a closet.
I starting looking on Pinterest for ideas for signs and came across this blog: http://thislilhouse.blogspot.com/:
From this idea, I decided to go to Michaels for supplies. Near the popsicle sticks, I found these: http://www.michaels.com/creatology-wood-people-shapes/10289934.html#q=Creatology&pmpt=qualifying&sz=24&start=142
After finding those, I started looking at frames but couldn’t find anything that I liked. I was about to give up when I walked down the seasonal section and found a simple piece of wood, already painted with a rustic finish and had a string on the back. I figured this would be perfect and would save me money.
I then went to the paint section and found the cheapest paint I could find in a color that matched my living room: http://www.michaels.com/craft-smart-acrylic-paint/M10143158.html?dwvar_M10143158_color=Bright%20Pink#start=3
When I got home, I painted the wood people and let them dry overnight. In the morning, I used my hot glue gun to glue them onto the piece of wood. The whole project cost me about $7.00 and this is my finished product:
