Along Abbey Road | A Lifestyle And Family Blog : The Nursery Reveal!

The Nursery Reveal!

When we first moved into our little abode, the second bedroom was used as extra storage space. You can only have so much stuff in 950 sq ft! The limited space makes you get pretty tricky and crafty with storage.

Needless to say, my nesting habits kicked in about 4 months early and I was determined to make Baby Rod's nursery a fabulous spot for the little guy to live.

Here is the storage room as a blank canvas...


And here is the galactic masterpiece I created...



Want to know how to make adorable framed posters on a budget? If you are anything like me, paying $25 per poster makes your skin crawl, but don't worry! You can make your own series, frames and all, for $15!

Materials:

-Microsoft Word
-Glossy 8x11 cardstock paper
-Color printer
-3 frames (purchased mine from Walmart @ $3 each)
-White craft paint ($2)
-Brush

Directions:

-Create a new document in Word
-Select desired font and saying
-Fill in document with desired color
-Print onto glossy paper!
(note: I printed mine at Kinkos because my printer was done...it was $.84 a copy!)
-Paint two coats of white paint onto frames
-Let dry

Boom-shocka-locka, you have cute framed sayings that are ready to hang!
