I've always loved the fleur-de-lis image and when I found a sticker on clearance last fall, I snapped it up. I also snapped up another ugly tile at Big Lots. I even remembered to snap a picture before I painted it. Hideous, really.
The last one I picked up was pretty cheap...marked down to $3.00. This one was even less...
Trust me....they're all ugly back there in the clearance section, but I spray painted it with white primer and had a clean slate. I gathered a few items from my craft room.....
...including this great black and white washi tape that I found at Michaels. I almost never buy any craft supplies, but I almost never go in Michaels either. I was drawn to this 12 yd. roll by my 40% off coupon.
I stuck the decal on my tile and added the washi tape around the edges. I used a ruler and an exacto knife to miter the corners.
If you look carefully at my corners, you can see that I was way too lazy to line up the pattern. My friend Tara at Suburble, who inspired this part of the project, did a much nicer job with hers and you can see her project HERE. Thank you for the inspiration Tara!
Anyway, I used some black silk ribbon tied on to the back as a hangar. I kind of thought I was done, but it really did need a little sparkle. Just a few of my favorite stick-on gems. (Less is more, right?)
All in all this project took me about 15 minutes and I have just the spot for it in my soon to be black and white bedroom.
I know I can't put off the furniture painting forever, but at least I can have a little fun while I'm stalling!
