Stepping on a scale and weighing oneself is not something that anyone wants to do. Yet, we all seem to own one. It just lurks in the corner, serving no purpose really, except to gather dust. But what if that scale were a work of art? Enter Art de Toilette’s new “scale art.” Made by owner/artist Wendy Gold, the whimsical bathroom scales bring a unique touch to any bathroom and are decorated in four different patterns: “Will
Power” (featuring a refrigerator door), Bittersweet (a box of chocolates), Moment of Truth (a calorie-counting angel and devil), and Barefoot Confessional (step right up for salvation). Celebrity clients of Gold’s handiwork include Sean Penn, Jack Nicholson, and Greenday’s Billy Joe Armstrong. $99 (privately commissioned pieces can be had for slightly more), www.artdetoilette.com
