Nursery Project #4: Modern Wall Art

March 8, 2012

Well we are really getting down to the wire!  36 weeks and 4 days and counting!

I still have A LOT to do…I was up until 1:45am last night looking at closet organization systems for the two new kids’ rooms that are almost done (yay!).  Before that I spent 2-3 hours separating all the NB, 0-3m, 3m, 3-6m, and >6m clothes and setting them up in the dresser in my room since the nursery won’t be ready for a bit.  I was (and still am) exhausted!!

Anyways – the project I am currently working on is the drapes for the nursery.  I should have those done today.  Next I’ll either work on the drapes for R’s room or I’ll work on the mobile.  We’ll see =)

I thought I’d show you some of the wall art that I made for the nursery – inspired largely by the nursery on Domestic Adventure that I showed before.

First we have the elephants:

Next we have 2 versions of a “LOVE” sign that I made. Can’t decide which one I like better…thoughts?

Here is the second option

Lastly, here is the “name” art that I made using the graphic that I designed for the growth chart and baby announcements (also inspired by some other amazing images online):

Next step: Buy frames!

I would have liked to do white frames for all of these, but since our crib and furniture that we already have is espresso, we will go with espresso frames, and white matt board.  I think this will all go on a yellow wall, so that will probably look better anyways.

I’m thinking the name will be in the middle, then one LOVE and one ELEPHANT image each on top and bottom or left and right – depending on how the furniture gets arranged in the room.

Hope you like ’em and thanks for reading.

On to sewing some tabs on some curtains….


with all this money I’m saving with making my own nursery things, I think I might deserve a new sew and improved sewing machine soon…

L are you reading this?

    I adore the decorations you are picking out for the little one!! Elephants was actually the theme for my little guy when he was born – we picked it because he weighed 9 lbs., 11.5 oz!! For the LOVE patterns, I like the first one the best – but that’s just my opinion!! 😉

      thanks holly! i think my husband likes the first LOVE option better too. But I feel better when there is more than one opinion! I think it looks a little cleaner…which is more the look we are going for. So that will likely be it. I can’t believe your “little” guy was 9 lb 7 oz!! That must have been a challenge!! We’ll see how big this one is…if the “stripes on my belly” (as R likes to call them) are any indication…it is not looking good… =)
