Nursery Canvases February 21, 2011 – Posted in: SYTYC

Thank you to everyone who voted for my nursery canvases! I’m working on the tutorial and hope to have it up in the next few days! In case you missed the post, here it is:

We’re renters. So when we moved into our home, right before our baby was born, I had a hard time decorating her room. The walls are a caramel copper color and while not necessarily a “girly” shade, I fell in love with Heather Bailey’s Nicey Jane fabric and thought the prints, reminiscent of the 1940’s, complimented her brown walls.

I made some curtains and a few crib sheets, but when it came to decorating the walls I was stuck. Her room has remained quite bare until now! Using a mix of paint, paper and fabric, I created 7 unique canvases to adorn the wall over her dresser, which up until recently housed a changing pad.

I love the way they came out and they dress up the room so much! Every time I go in, I can’t help but smile at my artwork, and hope it makes my darling girl happy, too.
