I knew when I started decorating this nursery - before I knew whether I was having a boy or a girl - that I wanted a little gallery wall above the crib.
Something pretty simple.
So I gave this 11x14 inch framed chalkboard center stage (made simply by using chalkboard paint on plywood and a frame found at a thrift shop) and with hubby's help just arranged my other choices around it.
(Hubby hung them all - otherwise it would look a mess.)
Thought I would share some of the details here...
This frame I found at my parent's house, leftover from their garage sale.
It was silver so I painted it with turquoise spray paint.
The adorable 'You Are So Loved' print can be purchase here.
I painted this frame, found at a thrift shop, as well as the chalkboard frame, with the same paint we used for the trim throughout our house. I love it because it is super bright! The 'oh, hello dear' print is actually a greeting card purchased at this cute shop. It didn't fit the frame so I simply put brown kraft paper behind it. I find if you are trying to decorate inexpensively and want to fill a cute frame you can find creative ways to do it!
The photo of baby Fin was one I took when she was one month. (pardon the glare off the glass!!!) I really like it and used it because she is wearing pink and I wanted to bring a little more girlish pink to the display. The Jesus Loves Me plaque was given to us at Cormac's baby shower and I thought the color went well and that it added something different amongst all the frames. Plus, we sing it every night before bed.
The 'Keep Calm' print is a greeting card framed in a very inexpensive white ikea frame. Then I put my favorite ultrasound picture of Finola inside another glassless frame I had for forever that I painted turquoise. The turquoise owl print is (also in an Ikea frame) is from this Etsy shop and was purchased before I had Cormac.
So there you have it! I have more projects going on in her nursery - which I think will always be a work in progress - and I will share more soon!
Hope everyone is having a beautiful week!
