Wall Decorations - Bit of This, Bit of That


For today’s blog I thought I would share with you my efforts at decorating my son’s bedroom walls. It has probably taken me over a year to fill it all– but I have to say I am very happy with the end result (no prizes for guessing my son’s name!)
The short wall has a green painted jungle sillouette (cost less than $5) which I finished before Ollie was born


The window wall has two aqua bump pics which my very best girlfriends gave to us for our engagement and one of my "peg it up" lines which i rotate pictures on (blatant self promotion - you can buy them here in packs of 7 or 10 pegs!) 
The final (long) wall is the one I have been working on. From left to right:


1.      Handmade name sign
2.      My Sweetprint Counting Poster which the lovely Janette kindly changed to Portuguese for me - so now was can count to ten in Portuguese when changing nappes
3.      Handmade Ollie’s first shoes – see my blog post about how to make these here
4.      (top and middle) framed postcards from Inaluxe (purchased in a pack of 8) 
5.   Oliver name – artwork by Paul Thurlby
6.      Prints by Red Letter Studio – these were originally greeting cards, but the very kind Samone re-sized them for me to frame

So that’s it. What do you think? I have to admit it makes me smile whenever I go in (maybe not first thing in the morning at 6.30 though).

What great decorating ideas have you seen for little ones room?
