I like the idea of a stone spa mat, but the time it would take to glue on a couple hundred stones makes it a little tedious for me. ‘Martha’ has a tutorial that will show you a quick shortcut! You can have this spa detail in your bath in about 15 minutes!
You have to download these printable spa labels from ‘Lia Griffith’. LOVE! Any clear jar or canister can be turned into a fancy spa container… You just print them onto a full label sheet, and then cut them out. I like the idea of using the pinking scissors for the edge… Nice finish! Thanks Lia, I am going to make these for my bathroom. And then I will keep them on my rustic bath caddy, right next to the wine and the book. Ahhhhh….
I would never have thought of this, but it’s one of those little “smell the roses” details that makes decorating fun!
