I have always loved this photo I took on one of my many expeditions to the beach in search of glass. Ever since my nephew-in-law-to-be (?) suggested I print it I have been thinking about where I could put it. I have a number of nautical accents in my family room, but really have no wall space to place it. I have a small bathroom downstairs that does. It has the brilliant blue walls and white sink that you see in magazines that belong in a cottage house filled with white bead board and blue accents. This bathroom comes off a room that is nothing like that, but a girl can dream.
I had tried hanging a nautical painting in there but the moisture in the room started to warp it. I had been reluctant to place anything in there, particularly photos. Annie painted a 9-block canvas with a sailboat but the arrangement is really too small for the wall.
Seeing the faux photo canvases on Pinterest, I thought I’d give it a try. I purchased a canvas, had my photo printed at Walgreens and Modge Podged it with Matte Modge Podge.
A little bit of streaking does occur, but it is only visible depending on the angle of the light hitting the canvas.
I can’t get the color to show up very well due to the lighting constraints. But I think the photo canvas will give the wall a bit more drama. I will see how well it holds up to the moisture, too.
Very cool idea! Hmm,now where did I put that Michael’s coupon….
Just love your photo. You know how I feel about beach glass. lol Great way to mount it for the bathroom.
Gorgeous photo. Nice addition to the wall. I hope it holds up to the moisture.
it looks great. I hope it holds up to the moisture too.
