    Any tips for bathroom wall art? I want to put a picture up in A's bathroom, but don't want it to get mildewy or wrecked.

    Hmmm maybe an aluminum/metal print? Perhaps @Honey knows a good option. She’s my go to artsy person lol

    I thought of that possibility. I think I'm hoping for more cutesy cartoon type art since kid's bathroom so not sure if metal would work well for that style and also if it would rust?

    I’ve always hung canvas art in bathrooms and have never had an issue!

    My parents have had a framed print in their bathroom for like, 25 years or something, and it's been fine. Dunno if they're lucky? There is a window for condensation to go out in there.

    I've hung plain black frames with landscape photos in them from previous hikes and provincial park trips. I've also hung a canvas before and it was fine. In fact, TG has a bunch of his Bob Ross paintings in our half bathroom. We call it the half bath/Bob Ross gallery. It makes for a cute joke when people see it AND I don't have to have a Bob Ross painting in every room in the house. I'm looking at one as I type this...

    Yeah, I have framed art and photographs that have hung in various bathrooms for 10+ years and are no worse for the wear.

    Good to know that I'm probably overthinking this! We have some pictures in our half bath and they've been fine, but that one doesn't get steamy or anything.

    Metal prints shouldn’t rust in steamy bathrooms. Open edition art prints will be fine if you dry mount them when you frame them. Canvases have a chance of sagging if they aren’t stretched well. Acrylic transfers are cute and would be great in a child’s space.

    We’re packing everything up and our new space is very different in terms of sight lines and spaces. I keep looking at each art piece I pack away and getting excited about how to remix it again.

    Dammit that gold piece of wall decor sold out so they’re refunding me. Back to the drawing board.

    I just ordered this instead. It’s $100 cheaper and is just as large!

    I’ve been trying to tackle more projects fixing our clutter problem. This morning I put this together to rework our drop zone.

    If I get a cookie jar and the only cookies that go in there are like, oreos, is that still acceptable? Theyre so cute, but I ain't keepig a fresh stock of cookies on hand.

    My gram always had cookies jars full of candy/fruit snacks growing up. I had one full of snacks/candy until it broke so put what you want in it!

    Ok good because cookie jars were just things Ive only seen on TV/movies and not something anyone I know has had.

    Movin' up in life.

    My gram has backup cookie jars. I made a comment on how much I liked one of them and she immediately made my grandfather get a box so I could take it because she had a backup she wanted to get out! :lol: She thought the one I liked was too creepy and only my grandfather liked it.
