The Cutest $5 Bathroom Decor Idea

We’re constantly trying to find ways to decorate our walls on a budget. Coming from 700 sq. ft. to 2,000 sq. ft. has been a challenge, because we quickly ran out of stuff to hang on the walls!

So we’ve been creating some cool DIY decor ideas that cost very, very little. Here’s a great bathroom decor idea that we came up with after discovering that chipboard letters were on sale for $1 at Hobby Lobby (my love for Hobby Lobby knows no bounds!)

Here’s all you’ll need to make the cutest $5 bathroom decor for our guest bathroom:

I waited until the chipboard letters were on sale for 50% off at Hobby Lobby. Chipboard letters are light and can be hung easily, and are simple to paint (instead of wooden letters, which cost more).

I used Americana Decor chalky finish paint because it’s much cheaper than Annie Sloan chalk paint and lasts forever. I’ve painted a piece of furniture, a mirror, a basket, and a knife block with this one pot, and still had some left over. Miracle paint, I tell you!

Then I laid them out overtop of a trash bag and craft paper. This is proper paint, so it won’t come out of clothing or be easily removed from furniture. Paint using just one coat, so you get a rustic look. Chalk paint covers incredibly well.

Then use 3M sticky mounting tape to hang to the wall. I arranged the letters how I wanted them on the floor and measured the span. Then I found the center on the wall and marked the measurement. It helped me know where to place the first and last letter.

Ta da! The whole project cost me $4 for the letters and maybe a dollar for the paint (but more like .25 cents, if that!) It’s such a fun way to make a big statement on an empty wall.
