It’s pouring down rain on this fine Saturday afternoon, so I’m piddling around the house taking stock of the various projects that keep alluding me. One that I hate to admit: J’s little nursery is still a teeny bit of a work in progress. There’s this one big blank wall that is just staring me down — I’ve been thinking about possibly adding shelves…or maybe a few fun prints? But then this morning I’ve come across what may be the answer — do-it-yourself, paint-by-number murals from Elephants on the Wall.
Whether it’s a small whimsical touch or a full-sized wall mural, there are a ton of choices – and they all go up in three easy steps – tape, trace and paint. A perfect rainy day project…..
Here are a few of the (crazy cute) designs that fit well with J’s brightly colored animal theme nursery:
