Colorful Abacus Wall Décor

Jenny from Anything Pretty was feeling a bit stressed about finding the perfect décor to grace the wall above her baby’s crib. Then she had the genius idea to create this colorful abacus for the space. The bright colors are perfect for a child’s room or playroom. Junior will undoubtedly enjoy staring up at this visually stimulating piece of homemade artwork. (And who knows… maybe he’ll be the next Einstein!)
