Melanie loved Deuteronomy 32:2 "Let My teaching fall like rain and My words descend like dew, like showers on new grass, like abundant rain on tender plants." We knew this verse needed to be the focal point of the room so I designed the layout and had a friend paint it on a board from Hobby Lobby.
I looked at shower curtains online and they started at $80 so I was so pumped to find this one on clearance at Home Goods and it was perfect! I loved the bright colors and it was only $11! I was excited to find bathmats and towels in the exact shades of green and blue I needed.
This shade of blue and mint green must be hot colors this season because I found a couple of art pieces that were perfect for the space. These flowers were on clearance from Hobby Lobby.
See how pretty they match?
The alcove was a bit more tricky because the toilet isn't centered on the wall. By using an asymmetrical piece, I tricked the eye into thinking it's all centered.
An important thing to remember when decorating is to be flexible. All three art pieces ended up on different walls then where I had planned. If you buy what you love, it will all eventually "go together" and work in your space...it might just take a few adjustments.
Melanie might add a piece of burlap ribbon behind the verse by to give it more weight on the wall. This isn't the wall I was expecting to hang the verse on so I didn't have burlap with me. I learned an important lesson that day: always travel with emergency burlap ribbon!
Melanie graciously hired me for this project as part of Adoption by Design, a fundraiser helping my sister and brother-in-law with their adoption fund.
I'm still booking Adoption by Design appointments through July so contact me to get a date on the calendar!
