So we have bedding in the works, now for the rest.
My taste is eclectic. I love art, and aged pieces of furniture and accents. I'm drawn to traditionally Mexican pieces, pottery, pictures, and other knick-knacks. This preference slowly started to work it's way into my ideas for a nursery. I've limited myself by not giving myself the option to paint. There isn't an ounce of paint used on our walls anywhere in this house other than the standard bright white which I'm okay with (the walls and ceiling support it). Textured walls almost immediately cancel out options for decals too.
So it all comes down to a frugal woman and her ideas. Here we go:
These letters were purchased from Hobby Lobby for about 99¢ per small letter and $1.99 for the two large letters. I painted them espresso and then Modge Podged scrapbook paper over them. I hot glued the ribbon to the back and decided to hang them from an extra set of curtain rods I couldn't use.
These crosses below are ones I've owned for years but their natural stone color wouldn't work for what I wanted so I painted them brighter with some acrylic paint. The paintings were made in about 4 hours and serve as not only as a decor but a little tribute to my favorite artist Frida Kahlo. They were fun to paint and I look forward to making more.
|Lola's sassy Frida. The blouse and curtains are extra scrapbook paper leftover from the letters. The daisy is glued down as well.|
|Mila's sweet Frida also has decoupaged curtains and blouse as well as actual ribbons in her hair.|
This dress was actually my dress once. It was a gift from my grandpa from one of his numerous trips to Mexico. I wanted a smaller black frame but stuck with one I already owned. I may change it later. My love for sentimental items plays a lot of influence in how I want my home as well.
