Toilet lid upcycle

Bringing some colour into your bathroom and personalizing objects is so fun and easy. This time I decided to upcycle the toilet lid.

I prepared a paper template for the cat in two sizes and traced it onto adhesive plastic foil.

I cut the single adhesives from the foil.
Then I prepared the toilet lid by covering the actual seat in adhesive tape in order to protect it from being coloured.
After that I sprayed different colours (ivory, lavender and violet) in patches onto the toilet lid and let dry.

When the finishing had dried I placed the adhesives onto the single colours making sure they adhered perfectly on all sides.

Then I sprayed dark blue finishing all over the toiled lid, covering the whole piece.
I left the lid to dry over night and in the morning I went to peel the adhesives off, uncovering the coloured cats.
