Painting for Nursery October 20, 2011

Filed under: Current Projects — willandlauren @ 2:46 pm

So, there are so many great decals out now to put on your walls. However, all theof ones I found (of big trees) on Etsy that I liked for the baby room were around $100 and I was worried about them sticking to our walls. Since we are renting I didn’t want to paint on the walls either…so I decided to find another canvas–a lovely old door. I found a great one at Resource and was again hooked up with a great deal by my friend Andrew Rottner. Here are some pics:


We found an old brass knob in the garage that I had bought to make a coat rack (but never got around to) and painted it yellow. I also took steel wool to the knob and some sand paper to the door edges to give back some of the old feel to it.  I wanted to find a tall skinny tree image to work from and found one in a book I was reading to Liam with great whimsical illustrations of trees and animals. Looking forward to putting it up in the baby room (securely!) and getting the rest of the room together.


Liam’s Twin Headboard October 17, 2011

Filed under: Uncategorized — willandlauren @ 9:30 am

Liam is almost ready for a “Big Kid Bed,” so I’ve painted him a little headboard. I found the headboard (originally a 70s looking oak) and rails at the Hospice Thrift Store on Arapahoe in Boulder at the half off sale for $5. I am in nesting mode getting the baby room ready and want to make Liam’s room fun too since his room has been neglected since the move.

Here are a couple of pics:

I have a couple of art projects for his room that I hope to start this week. I’ll post pics of those and his room makeover hopefully in the next couple of weeks.
