Letter Art | Get crafty with your walls

After I finished my wallpaper storage solution behind the door of my office, I moved on to the walls, which were a clean slate. I envisioned a collage of frames (to come on a later post), but I wanted to break it up with something more organic. I LOVE vintage lettering from old store signs but they are quite expensive. So I asked myself how I could do a DIY solution. This idea was inspired from the pom poms I made last spring with my kids. Super easy to do, you can customize the font and letter you want. Here, I have chosen to do the first letter in my company logo and I love the results. This would be fantastic for a kid’s room using their initials. Happy DIY’ing!

Gay Paris | Vacation inspired art!

One of my more memorable vacations was our amazing trip to Paris when our daughter was just six months old. She was young enough to nap a lot and when she was awake she happily played with her toys in the stroller. The best part? Parents with young children get to skip the line at museums! When we got back I was inspired enough to create two pieces for her room from our trip using just a couple of Ikea frames, a few sheets of scrap book paper and some acrylic paint!

Make your own customizable art | Easy DIY Kids Nursery Art

When we were having our first child we looked around for inspiration for artwork. We didn’t know the baby’s sex, so we didn’t want to pigeon-hole ourselves with something too sweet or too boyish. At the time, scrapbooking was pretty huge and I LOVED all of the patterns available. So I came up with this idea for ABC art. This artwork is easily customizable to match the decor of your child’s room by simply picking scrapbook paper that matches your colour scheme.
