I bought a few more cardboard letters for my bathroom, to fill the gap to the left of the cabinet. I've always had a feeling it would give the illusion of making the cabinet feel wider.
I tried the white B.A.T.H.E letters here, but felt it was a shame that you only got to see them when walking out of the bathroom (or lying in the bath with your head at an uncomfortable angle). Anyway, they work well by the window, but I still had a gap by the cabinet that needed filling.
So, I thought....why not, just go buy some more. I chose Le Bain and gilded them because of the little bit of old gold on the cabinet handle. Or maybe just because I can't resist a bit of gold.
I mentioned in the last post that I wanted to tie all the colours in the room together, albeit in a very subtle way, so I painted the sides of the letters in a few carefully chosen colours.
I found a perfect matchpot of yellow to go with my yellow bath, and painted the E and the N.
I bought a red match pot for the B, because of the paint and fabric on the cabinet.
I used AS Emile on the L, because of the pinks and lavenders in the room.
I just painted the letters in a charcoal, then gilded the fronts and put a glaze on the gold to dull them slightly and then painted the sides and distressed a little.
My obsession with letters didn't diminish, I bought two more, but not for the bathroom.
I finally got out of the bathroom.
I'm now working on something I've wanted to do for about 10 years, it's very exciting.
I've also been working on all of these. More red chairs, some updating at home and some work in a boiler room !
I just don't blog very much, so I want to say thank you very much if you've stopped by for a little look.
