After looking through blog after blog, inspiration board after inspiration board - I knew that I needed to create a gallery of artwork over the crib. I'm not gonna lie - galleries scare me a little. You could end up with holes in the wall that don't need to be there, and then have to stop everything you're doing to patch and repaint. Not fun. I decided to go for it anyway.
So, last weekend, I ventured out to Walmart and Hobby Lobby on the hunt for frames. They had to all be sleek lines, but I knew I wanted a mix of colors. I found what I needed and returned home to figure out what I was going to design to go in them!
I have been looking for an excuse to make some "Keep Calm" artwork, so that was kind of a given. I decided on "Keep Calm and Dream On" since it was going over the crib.
In keeping with the color palette of the storybook pages, I then decided to make an alphabet print.
I have a lot of yellow and aqua in the room, but wanted to draw some more attention to some of the other colors as well. I wanted something simple, and more on the modern side to balance out the vintage I had going on in the room. This is what I came up with.
Hubby did most of the hanging (I am not very skilled in this area), and I just love the final result. Here she is:
Not sure if you've noticed - but I am only giving sneak peaks at some of the projects in the room. Until it's complete - I don't want to reveal too much. Soon though!! I can't wait myself!!
