Bathroom Rules Subway Art

Remember the vinyl that Cricket Vinyl Supplies sent me? Well, I've got another fun vinyl project for you!

Pin It
 
This is a fairly simple project, and if you're at all familiar with painting and using vinyl, it will be pretty self explanatory.
 
To do this project, you'll need:
 
-Wood
-Paint & painting supplies
-Sandpaper
-Mod podge
-Vinyl (I used grey and black in Orcal 631)
 
I don't have the ability to cut my own wood, so I had to spend the money to buy a piece of wood. In this case, I found this 11"x16" piece at Michaels for $13.99 (before my coupon). I also used the grey vinyl and transfer tape from Cricket Vinyl Supplies. I already had the black vinyl on hand.
 
My little crafty helper wanted to get in on the action, so he hopped off his bike and helped do some painting. We painted a light brown around the edges to show through after we distressed it.
 
 
Then finished it off with red.
 
 
After impatiently letting it dry, he even helped with the sanding and distressing.
 
 
After distressing, the board got a good coat of mod podge, and then I added the vinyl. I used Silhouette Studio to create and cut my design. Then I used the awesome transfer tape from Cricket Vinyl Supplies to put the design on the board. I absolutely love how the lines are actually on the tape rather than on the paper. It makes transferring and lining things up sooooo much easier!



The vinyl was really easy to work with. It cut well and I was able to easily weed the design.

Once it's all transferred, you can admire your handwork. Beautiful! These colors perfectly match my Crafty Helper's/Guest bathroom upstairs.



Don't forget about the giveaway for a Cricut Expression machine going on through May 19th, 2013. If you've already got a craft cutter, you can get 15% off all regular priced vinyl at Cricket Vinyl Supplies by using the code "somedaycrafts" at checkout. This code is good through May 31st, 2013.

  8. This might be a dumb question, but why the mod podge under the vinyl?

    1. Not a dumb question :) I haven't had very good luck using mod podge over vinyl, so I decided to use mod podge over the paint instead of over the vinyl.
