Wall Decor Ideas
When we moved into our current house a year and half ago, my daughter transitioned from her nursery to a big girl room. There was already some cute decorations that made the cut but we still had a lot of empty wall space to fill.
The changing table/ dresser became just a dresser. (You can you read about it here.)
The biggest challenge was the big white empty white wall behind the bed. I knew that I wanted two gold star-burst mirrors and a wall gallery of Alice prints but I didn’t want to spend any money. Everything I needed for DIY was already in my house. 😉
Supplies: For the mirrors, I used two thrift store mirrors (that used to be in the master bedroom), skewers, and gold spray paint.
Assembly: I hot glued the skewers onto the back of the mirror and attached a piece of scrap cardboard (I think it was the back of a catalog hence the picture) little nails and added a picture hanger.
The wall gallery came from a 99¢ calender that I had purchased previously. The pictures were hung with ribbon from wooden letters that came from the nursery. I threaded the ribbon through a bead at each hole to secure it.
Later on I secured the calendar pictures with push pins to keep them from flapping around when the fan was on.
What is there not to love about free wall decor? Have you DIYed a project to save money?
