The nursery project for my clients is winding down thankfully. Well it kind of has to since the baby is coming on Friday (thanks to the miracle known as a the “c-section” you can now plan the exact time of your child’s birth). In any case, the budget is tapped out and I am left with some bare walls to fill. Fortunately, I can always count of Ikea for some DIY design inspiration. After wandering around the store like a lost soul for about 15 minutes, I happened upon the fabric/textile section and set my eyes upon a bolt of fabric called Annamoa. I had never paid attention of this fabric nor had the idea of a fabric art wall treatment come to mind. However, seeing the fun and colorful designs on the fabric combined with the fact that it was only $7.99 a yard, I was smitten.
From that one yard of fabric, I now have enough art to fill the remainder of my walls thanks to some cheap $2 frames and of course, my friend (and yours too I am sure) white spray paint. Take a look at the adorable images I will be framing this weekend….
I think the images are perfect for a nursery. Actually I am quite smitten with this image in particular:
I don’t know why, but the fact that the squirrel is holding what appears to be a cheese knife makes me laugh out loud. Okay, I have to start cracking on these finishing touches. I have today and Friday to finish the dresser, hang art and put the final touches on the room before Mommy, Daddy & the new baby come back to the house.
