My nursery is coming along and I cannot wait until the reveal! Just waiting on some last minute pieces . . . but in the mean time I would like to share with you some of the smaller projects that have kept me just as busy.
In my inspiration for the baby's room I had chosen some vintage storybook artwork that I saw at Restoration Hardware. Knowing that this was something I was going to re-create, I had been thinking up a cute and cheaper alternative. Well, this is what I came up with:
First, I went online and found some black and white silhouettes of animals that i liked:
Then using Microsoft Word I re-colored the images. Just go into "format picture" and then click on re-color . . it will give you a bunch of color options. Here is an example:
Next, I chose a vintage book and used the book pages as the backing for the artwork. Just set up your printer to have them print where you would like.
Then I chose a font that I could make a pattern from for the fabric letter. I found the frames at Target for about $12 each.
Here is what a finished frame looks like:
And in the room here is how it looks with all the animal artwork:
Using the same idea I also created some artwork in what is going to be the baby's bathroom:
Enjoy! I hope this inspires you!
