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.
Her cute window treatments were Walmart white panels that I sewed hot pink cotton fabric to the bottom to make them the right length.
What is there not to love about free wall decor? Have you DIYed a project to save money?
