Graphic Print DIY Project
I wanted to share a project I worked on last week. I am an avid reader of Jenny Komenda's blog Little Green Notebook. She has good design ideas and knows how to do them on a budget. So when I was looking to spruce up my bland bathroom I followed her tutorial on how to create a no-sew pedestal sink skirt here.
I was inspired by the new shipment of Roberta Roller Rabbit we got at the store this week. In addition to clothing, Roberta Freyman also does a home line and sells fabric by the yard. We sell the fabric in our store by special order and I could not resist this blue and white pattern.
I found the tutorial very easy to follow. The only thing I changed was the type of velcro I used. I found one at Michael's that was sticky on one side and not on the other. This apartment is rented and I wanted to be able to remove the skirt when we leave. I glued the non-sticky side to the fabric and adhered the sticky side to the outside of the sink. I think I will be able to remove any residue with some Goo Gone when we leave. What do I love the best? The skirt not only brightens the space, but it also gives us more storage under the sink.
