room tour: nursery and wallpaper art

here's our littlest one's room!
the ugly BEFORE:


added my fave color:  martha stewart's "enamel ware" (blue walls) and striped the crib wall, using leftover paint from other rooms, a pencil, level, and painter's tape.


hung lanterns with string and pins....they were left over from a party i threw



white washed an ikea pine wardrobe




painted some simple animals for artwork


took a piece of mdf, painted it, glued on letters purchased from michael's, that i individually painted in different colors


got an idea to use some leftover wallpaper as giant stickers....the above are the sketches i used


used painters tape to place the pieces before i committed... 


and applied.....voila!


a little bit of a "mod" feel i think

  1. Hi Natalie! My name is Catie and I found your blog through a link on Centsational Girl's blog. Love your home, gorgeous!! I was a little excited when I read you're from Calgary, me too! I've lived here for 11 years and HATE the weather. Being from California, I would definitely like a warmer climate.

    Anyway, just wanted to say 'hello'. We seem to have a lot of the same interest. Just recently I started a blog too - Catie's Corner. You have done way more with yours. I need to get on mine! Check it out if you like. http://catiescorner2.blogspot.com/

    It'd be great to hear back from you! Have a great weekend and enjoy the weather. Who knows how long it'll last?
