Rubber Ducky…You’re the one

It’s the first love song I knew the words to:) You can’t help but smile when you hear it (or sing it!).

Ever since the bathroom got a new mirror I’ve wanted to add something to the wall behind it. I wanted something subtle because the room is quite long and narrow and I still want your eye to travel to the window, not freeze on a large picture or colourful piece of art.

I also wanted something that spoke to you when opened the curtain fresh from the morning shower.

Enter rubber ducky.

And gold spray paint:)

A visit to the dollar store produced a rubber duck. I then used my kitchen shears to cut it in half and then spray painted the heck out of each half. Once it was dry, it got glued onto the canvas (which I had painted white) and then I added my favourite part of the song, “you’re the one”.

It’s been up for a week now and I have to say, every morning as I exit the shower it serves as a pleasant little love note and I can’t help but smile.

      thanks Sabrina! I can just see it in so many colours - would be great for a kids bathroom, maybe a whole bunch with each in a different colour! :)
