My downstairs toilet was my least favourite room in the house, it was bland, cold and somewhere I was embarrassed for guests to use. Since we live in a rented house, wallpapering or painting the walls isn't an option, but adding removable vinyl totally is!
It was so easy to do this wall update using Cricut joy and removable smart vinyl to cut out the shapes and apply them to the wall. Where else can I do this in the house?!
I love that with only a couple of hours work my bathroom has had a total makeover and is now my fave room in the house, I'm literally demanding that people use the toilet if they come to visit!
YOU WILL NEED:
-Cricut Joy (Or any other Cricut machine will work too!)
-Removable smart vinyl in black and gold
Prepare your design in Cricut Design Space, I used the image 'Shapes #M778A3CD' from the House that Lars Built T-Shirt Collection Image set.
Resize your design to fit your wall, then duplicate the design if needed. I cut the same amount of shapes in both colours to give an even look.
Feed the removable vinyl face up into Cricut Joy and Start cutting using the removable vinyl setting. Smart Vinyl doesn't need a mat, which means you can cut a long length all at once.
Once complete, load the next colour of removable vinyl into the machine.
Next weed away all of the excess vinyl so that just the shapes are left on the carrier sheet, use your weeding tool to help remove any tricky parts.
I didn't use transfer tape for the next step as the shapes were solid enough to just peel off, but if you have a more intricate design you'll want to apply transfer tape to move the designs onto the wall.
Peel off each vinyl shape and stick to the wall at random, layering the black and gold pieces until the whole wall is covered!
Use a scraper tool to burnish the vinyl, making sure its well stuck to the wall.
Then step back and enjoy your handy work!
