Bathroom assessories

I like making useful things look pretty (as oppose to just making pretty things – it’s a “me”-thing, don’t ask). This is such a classic example:


We needed refillable soap and lotion bottles at the office, so I bought two pump-action see-through bottles, one for soap (“seep”) and one for body lotion (“handeroom”), then decorated them using seashell images, vinyl alphabet stickers, raffia and a sea star trinket. I used Glossy Accents to stick the alphabet stickers down (after removing the glue first), because that’s the only thing I know of that might last when exposed to moisture and lots of handling. I’ve never made something like this before, so it will be interesting to see how long it is going to last before stuff start to come off 🙂

stickers: Seashells (Mrs. Grossman); black “diaquiri” thickers vinyl letter stickers (American Crafts)
other: raffia, small button, sea shell trinket
tools: double-sided tape [to keep raffia in place]; Gunk & Goo Remover (un-do products) [to remove glue from letter stickers]; Inkssentials™ Glossy Accents™ (Ranger) [used to stick letters down]
