I Call It Toilet Art!

The Mister tore out the toilet in our downstairs bathroom. The lid has been sitting outside the door for about a week, when one day I went by it and thought, you know what, I can do something with that. Of course Mister thought I was nuts and told me so, lol.
I decided to spray paint a few clear coats of paint onto the lid to give it some grit or texture. I mixed up a little paint that I had and painted the lid, I only painted about 3/4 of it.

I took a napkin and dabbed it around on top of the paint, it gave it a little texture to it.

Here is how it turned out! I love it and even The Mister complimented it, but it was still lacking, so back to the Graphics fairy I went.

I had to add more paint to the top to make sure the ink stuck, but somehow it is yellow compared to the lower half that was painted.

Then I added a little decoration on the bottom.

Overall it isn't so bad and The Mister liked it a whole lot. It's hard to impress him so I was happy!!

    I had to purchase a new toilet seat and was fixing to take and put the old one in the trash outside. Then it dawned on me, this lid is a pretty good piece of wood .I got a screw driver and took the lid off of the seat . I then sanded it down and
