We all know that I’m frugal to begin with. Add in a super tight budget, and the
need desire to decorate a nursery, and we end up with a few cheapo decorating projects to spruce things up. So far, I’ve made valances for just a few bucks using leftover fabric from another project, and made custom crib sheets and change pad covers using fun fabrics for much less than I would have spent on pre-made ones. My latest project cost about $4 for a can of spray paint, and that’s it!
Similar to the living room art I made a while back, I saved up a bunch of toilet paper tubes, squished them in half, and cut them into pieces. I then glued them together, and had my sweet hubby spray paint them for me since I’m not supposed to be around the fumes while pregnant.
Here’s Chris tackling the spray painting (don’t mind the dog-destroyed lawn. I have grass seeding on the agenda soon enough):
And here’s the finished product:
We’ve kept the walls neutral since we’re probably listing the house for sale soon, but I’m trying to add pops of teal/turquoise and lime green.
I like how the colour gets deeper when you see it from the side:
Next up on the decorating list is a mobile for over the crib. I’ve been pinning lots of inspiration mobiles to my “little bean” board on pinterest, and I think I finally know which way I’m going to go.
