In our last post, we looked at some of the best ideas for Fanboy Hot Tub Covers we could think of. Today, lucky you, we look at some more. Feel free to share your ideas in the comments. You just never know what might happen once an idea takes flight.
Without further ado…
Graffiti. This would be the lazy man’s do-it-yourself cover art plan. For that much sought-after “post urban decay look”. The great thing about this is that it costs so little, because anyone – even you – can do it right at home. You know those teenagers down the street who keep giving you dirty looks? They’ll even do it for free. While they’re at it, they’ll even do your deck, too. And your garage door. And your windows. And your French poodle.
Hand prints. Why not make it a neighbourhood project? Get a few cans of paint and invite everybody around to come over, dip their hands in paint and make their mark on your hot tub cover. What a great way to get to know your neighbours. Just make sure to give them a way to wipe off their hands – otherwise, your French poodle might look very well “handled” the next day.
Chocolates. Put pictures of chocolate in all shapes and sizes, with all sorts of decorations. Brown chocolate. Black chocolate. White chocolate. Even green chocolate (minty!) Chocolate with nuts and jam and liqueurs. And the best part? These chocolates won’t melt in the sun. And who doesn’t feel better surrounded by chocolate?
Camouflage. Speaking of camouflage, how about something for the duck hunters reading this? With the right cover, you don’t have to sit in a duck blind at the edge of a swamp to catch your prey. Instead, you can relax in your hot tub covers duck blind, sipping a cool drink. Hey, doesn’t that sound a lot more fun?
Pink flamingos. What did I say? Yeah, I know they are tacky, but there are always pink flamingo people in every crowd, and we would not want to disappoint them. So consider this: pink flamingos are not just for birthdays, anymore. Nor are those lawn penguins. However, penguins probably would not like the hot water of your spa; Flamingos are more accustomed to the warm water.
Blue flamingos. (If pink flamingos is too Barbie for you.)
Famous Art. If your hot tub cover is a blank canvas, just waiting for a creative paint brush, why not call on the experts? Like famous artists. After all, some dude painted famous art across the cover of the Sistine Chapel. Imagine how shocked your friends will be when they discover you got culture. There are many famous painters to choose from – the Italian Renaissance, French impressionists, Dutch masters, or even Canada’s Group of Seven. Just stay away from American Gothic (pointy pitch fork – might poke a hole in your spa cover). Why not choose art by a famous Canadian painter? There are so many to choose from, so here are just a few:
E.J Hughes (BC’s high realism landscape painter, far too often overlooked)
Emily Carr (who could drive a totem pole down the center of your hot tub)
Lawren Harris (Group of Seven luminary, and my favourite)
A.J. Casson (Group of Seven)
Cornelius Krieghoff (For something a little more traditional, like eggnog)
