Baby Nursery – part 1: Wall Mural DIY

Decorating baby nursery is all about fun! The hardest part was actually picking the color … For my baby girl, I want her room to feel neutral with girly touch here and there, definitely not pink room. The theme is sunshine in the morning sky (sounds like movie or song ^.^ ), the color pallet is orange and blue. I made several DIY projects for this baby nursery which will be posted separately, so don’t forget to return to my blog for future posts šŸ™‚

Part 1 of baby nursery project is wall mural.

The room has the wallpaper border around above the chair rail. Since it’s still in good condition and works well with my decor plan, I decided to leave it and go ahead with painting the wall.

Next, drawing and painting the trunk.

Preparing the leaves using scrap fabric.

Attaching the leaves. Spray wet and thoroughly the fabric with liquid starch (for ironing the cloth). When dried it will stay nicely on the wall.

The bird house. Got it for $1 at JoAnn during sale. Painted with left over dining room yellow color paint then covered with wrap paper.

The Birds. I Saw these birds at Etsy shop, it looked quite simple so I just DIY-it. What you need is felt, orange & black scrap fabric, and extra accessories to dress them up.
