DIY nursery decor ideas

 

DIY nursery decorPiper Jane’s nursery is taking much longer than I anticipated (she is almost one already!)… Today I thought I’d share a few of the projects I’m working on and a couple sneak peaks as well!

This most fabulous of spray painted salvaged windows is currently acting as above-the-crib decor… It’s one of my favorite things in her room right now…

Those geography cards are another current fave.

ps- This is the first glimpse of Piper Jane’s almost done room! End-of-September is my self imposed finish up deadline- can’t wait to show you the finished room!

    Ok Kirstin, I have to admit I am now 100% officially envious/covetous. See I love me some Martha Stewart… in fact I was buying her stuff when she initially came out with her website (yes that long ago since they discontinued on-line sales for a number of years.) And now a few of my friends (as in met in real life friends) have been the sent the whole line as well. So now I am saving my pennies…. (and to think we just started in on our hardcore budget!! I guess its time to start the ebay sales and possibly etsy shop)

    Okay now I wanted to tell you I AM SO HAPPY for YOU! This is truly an awesome line and I know you will do amazing things with it!! CONGRATULATIONS!! and please do ENJOY! (that way I can enjoy it vicariously through you!! cause you always do things that make me SMILE!)

    So, so adorable! Such a great idea for the alphabet cards! But I swear, as someone that lives where there are earthquakes, my heart rate went up seeing the shelf above the crib =)

    Wow, I didn't know that spray painting kits existed, and YES I looked for coral spray paint for FOUR long months before giving up and moving on… Man I love the color you came up with and will have to ask for a spray painting kit for Christmas so I can finally make myself a coral belt!

    Wow, I didn't know that spray painting kits existed! And YES I search for FOUR months for coral spray paint. Why don't they sell that color? Anyway your color is gorgeous and I found something to add to my Christmas list! THANKS for sharing!

    Hey Georgia! Of course you noticed the cards. :) I love that.
    I REALLY wanted travel-themed flash cards and couldn't find any, so I just made them. The places are all special to our family (aka- we've been there, friends live there, we're planning to go there, etc.).
    I definitely need to make you a Uganda one! Email me your info (address, color for the ink and 4×6 or 5×7) and I'll get that in the mail! :)

    Oh man, this stuff looks like so much fun! I'd be like you with ideas just flooding through my head. I'm super excited about the idea of spray paint in any color as well – boy am I tired of wishing I had a spray painter but not wanting to shell out the big bucks at the hardware store (nor bust something that big out for a small project). Thanks for letting us know about these great products!! I know what I'll be asking for my birthday. :)

    BTW, the project is SUPER cute and Piper Jane's room is looking great!

    Hey Carmen! There is an "etching" add-in that makes the paint stay on ceramics. We used the paints (and the etching stuff) on the elephant shower favors and have put them through the dishwasher a ton and it's held up really well.
