We wanted to create a room for our new baby that would be calming and pleasant to be in.
a combination of wall decals we saw online and wanting to tone down the pink already in the room.
simple and uncluttered, pleasant.
The room was all pink (too pink!). We wanted to apply wall decals to create a forest look, but the decals are so expensive! So, we decided to create a gray accent wall and mask out the design of trees and birds. We added gray curtains (fabric purchased at the store, created curtains using iron-on seam), and done! Graco crib from target (was on sale) and a matching changing table we found on craigslist.
the bird on a branch on an adjacent wall, mirroring the bird on the accent wall.
this was very inexpensive. One quart of paint ($10), 6 yards of fabric ($40), iron-on seam ($5), masking tape ($5), paint roller and such ($10), used changing table ($40) and brand new crib and mattress on sale ($200), we already had the curtain rod form ikea ($15). On top of that, very little work! Only one wall needs to be masked and painted, and the iron-on seam on the curtains take seconds to do! The gray wall provides more neutrality to the room, so that other colors can be a part of the room without clashing.
