We just moved. And painted our main bathroom blue. And my shower hooks clash now. And they don't go with our master bathroom either. *Le Sigh*
I guess I got my use out of them. 6 years is pretty good for $16.
Hold on though! I can fix them to match our new bathroom (blue, black, and white)? And all it takes is a Sharpie and an oven?
I was going to buy new ones, so if I botched this I figured I wasn't out anything.
Cue The Sharpie!
The tutorial I saw (the really popular one on Pinterest, with the teal Sharpie knobs via Teal & Lime) showed the lines of the Sharpie kind of creating a variegated look as the lines overlapped--I'm guessing this is a product of the colored Sharpies. The black went on smoothly and without any sort of fussing.
I poked them through a cardboard box to dry overnight--they do smear quite easily for the first hour or so.
Then I popped those babies into the oven the next day at 350 degrees F for 30 minutes. (Please note my hand painted "Tea Room," "Sugar Shop," and "Flour House" and my gorgeous yellow house cookie jar--THRIFTED. In perfect condition and thrifted! Thrifting is a new thing for me--and not because of that heinous "Thrift Shop" song. I've discovered that it's actually a very fun and useful way to shop sometimes. I highly recommend it as long as you have reputable stores--Goodwill, St. Vincent de Paul, or Vine stores, for instance.)
Please excuse my wrinkled shower curtain--I didn't pull it out of the dryer as quickly as I should have.
So pretty and shiny and matching! And it cost me $0 because I already owned a Sharpie.
Thanks Teal & Lime and Pinterest!
