Remains: Bathroom Bride Decor

4

I absolutely love ornate frames. The more victorian and gothic they look the better. I am hoping to one day re do all the frames in our home to only be this type of frame. I have gradually started but right now we have soooo many things framed it would cost a small fortune to replace them all. My Mother In Law always keeps an eye out for them at garage sales. She had found me a silver 5 x 7 one a while back when I was upcycling frames for my limited edition framed art prints. I decided not to use this one for the project and keep it all to myself. 🙂 I just wasn’t sure when or how I was going to use it until today.

First I painted it. I mixed a plum purple with a hint of hot pink to make the color I wanted. While it was still wet I brushed a dry cloth over it to get some of the silver shine to come through. After it dried I printed one of my favorite photos of Elsa Lachester on photo paper. It is of her on the set of the Bride of Frankenstein applying her makeup. Perfect to hang in our bathroom! I just love the way it looks with our Be Your Own Kind Of Bootiful sign (that I got for $2.50 during Halloween at Dollar General)! On our other wall is the Sourpuss Clothing Beauty Is Only Skin Deep clock that I recently picked up on their clearance for only $6!!

Area Rug Hunt!

2

Ok my Freaky Fanatics I need your help! I am on the hunt for an 8 x 10 area rug for my living room. My husband ripped up the carpet in our living room and stained the hardwood underneath this awesome gray color. Now we need an area rug. The thing is I want something that goes with our gothic decor. See our living room colors are blacks, dark blues and grays. We have a coffin coffee table and a new slate gray sectional on the way. Our wall art is horror movie, Universal Monster and Tim Burton themed framed posters. We have a lot of bat decor as well. I can’t seem to find a rug that would work with our decor. Any suggestions? Our dream would be to find a Universal Monsters area rug that large but I highly doubt they make them and can’t find one. We also were thinking a tombstone shaped rug or one with bats flying all over it would be neat. There are some shops online that make custom rugs from photos but they are either very expensive or they are made rather chinsey for the cost. Any suggestions???

Stay Spooky!
