I just finished my new toilet seat this morning. I didn't have any paintbrushes so I used tape instead of paint! I'm not sure what type of tape it is, kinda like masking tape only a little stronger and it's black! So I drew a grid on the seat in pencil, covered it square by square with the tape and cut the design with an exacto knife. I didn't seal it with anything, I'm not sure what to use...but anyway, here it is, I think it's way cute.

If you want to give it a little protection so it doesn't start to peel after a while of use take the toilet seat outside and give it a few coats of clear laquer to seal it.

It looks great, absolutly adorable.

Yeah, I didn't want to do anything too girly! I was trying to make the bathroom not so cutesy since I live with my boyfriend (and the rest of the apt is getting too girly as it is), and he actually likes it!

If you end up doing it, I'd love to see  Smiley

No, it wasn't electrical tape! I'm pretty sure electrical tape would work fabulously though...It probably would work better than what I used too! The tape I used was something I got when I took a drafting class...not sure if it's called drafting tape? The texture is almost just like masking tape, but a little thicker and a little stronger.
