We've known since day one that we wanted a neutral nursery with pops of color..that correlate with the baby's gender. A few weeks back I completed one of my favorite pops of color in the nursery..a canvas for her shelves.Supplies:
-Fabric cut into 3"x22" strips (I used 4 total)
-Hot glue gun and sticks
Between the canvas (which came with two) and acrylic paint it cost a total of $4.09. Woohoo!here how silly I was to choose such an odd color..but it is so so pretty and perfect. :) Such is life.
Round one of painting (which involved at least 6 remixes of the paint) included a melon color, white, and holiday red. The three items on the right..two spools of ribbon and a fat quarter were proof that I could actually match the orangey/peach..too bad I couldn't find one paint to buy instead of the final total which was five (only buying two new ones though).
P.S. I L-O-V-E egg crates, they are perfect for painting and housing Baby Girl's socks..when we have more than three pairs. :)
The winner included a light orange, holiday red, mustard yellow, and melon. Yes, that means there was another round of paint mixing. In all, I probably had 12 versions. But..I love the stripes of yellow that ended up appearing on it, so I guess it was worth it. :)
After the painting was done and completely dry I stuck on the vinyl. I found this quote on Pinterest here a while back and fell in love. It was one of the sweetest quotes ever.
I then used some of the fabric from the alphabet wall to create four rosettes and then I used hot glue to stick them on. (Rosette tutorials can be found here from Craftaholics Anonymous and here from Kiki creates.)
Seriously one of my favorite things in the nursery:
Baby Girl is very very loved.
