(I guess this is the right board for this...)
I've had a very ugly plastic seashell soap dish for years and finally decided to get something cuter. I couldn't justify spending $10-$15 (who knew?!), so I got a plain white one at the dollar store and gussied it up. I can't paint worth a damn, so I decided to make it look "sketchy" on purpose, since it would certainly turn out like that anyway.




Nothing special, but I like it. Comments welcome!

Thanks. I used glass & tile medium for acrylic paint. 1 coat before I painted, 2 coats to seal the paint. I've never used it before so I'll have to wait and see how it holds up.

Thanks guys.  Cheesy  The Von Dutch style eyeball was just done on a whim, but I think it has officially kick started a hot rod theme for my bathroom too. I think I'm going to applique some hand towels next.

That's so funny, I was just looking for one on eBay!  They're so expensive, though. Maybe with a couple more months of practice I can stripe my own.
