Art in the Bathroom

I haven't hung much artwork in our house since I'm still priming and painting walls. But, the main bath has been painted for a while and there was a large empty space above the toilet that was crying out for some kind of art.
See? So empty looking!
I already had two nice frames I bought on sale years ago at Pottery Barn, so I just needed art to pop into the frames. I looked for something on Etsy but couldn't find anything I liked in the right size and shape. Then, I noticed the jar of shells I collected last summer on our trip to Kennebunkport, Maine...
How beautiful would they look in the frames? I laid them out on a sheet of gray paper and took two photos...
then sent the files to Staples and asked them to print color copies to fit an 8 x 10 inch format. The entire job cost $1.25!
Like most bathrooms, it can get pretty steamy so I didn't want something on the walls that was too precious. I can always print more and replace these if they get ruined over time.

This is such an easy way to get inexpensive and pretty art for your wall. Other objects from nature would work just as well, like acorns, leaves, feathers, flowers or pine cones.
