When the bathroom makeover turned into a bathroom makeover – ya know – when I removed the popcorn ceiling and that turned into a pink ceiling and that turned into needing new wall paint and then it just all turned into a full on makeover?
Well anyway, what I really really really wanted in the space was some of the Beverly Hills Hotel banana leaf / palm wallpaper.
I didn’t want it over all the walls – just like one.
But even that was outta my league – too pricey.
I really wanted to bring some of that green into my bathroom though. Let’s be honest, I love green. We all know this. There are hints of it in the living room and kitchen, and I wanted to keep that going in the bathroom.
So I searched. I searched high and low, far and wide, for some type of banana leaf / palm leaf / whatever art print.
And everything was out of my price range.
‘Cause let’s face it – I’m cheap.
And then one day I was sitting on the couch and thought to myself, “Self, you should just download that Waterlogue app that was all the rage a few months back and make your own art.”
Self responded, “YES.”
So self bought the app – she thinks it was $3 or so.
Then self went outside and took photos of her own banana tree leaves that she scored at the Haven Conference.
And then she ran them through the app.
And she had beautiful banana leaves watercolors that she used in her bathroom and is sharing with you.
There are four here for you to enjoy and use however you so desire.
(Find out how to download the art at the end of the post.)
I ended up only using one. I framed it and hung it above the towel rack in my bathroom. There simply wasn’t room for more in the space. Don’t worry though – I’m sure they will show up in other rooms soon.
I suggest printing them out in a matte finish – it will help keep that watercolor look.
You can totally just print them out on your printer, but I opted to print them out via a photo service. I think I used Snapfish.
