Whether placed on a bag, a pillow, or even a wall, a monogram adds a flourish that’s undeniable. Anne from Creative Life Blog wanted to bring this flourish to her bar area and her daughter’s nursery, just not at $139 a piece. She found a more affordable option in ordering custom unfinished wood monograms and then simply spray painting them the desired color.

Sara from Embrace My Space put a playful twist on the “effortless and elegant” shape of West Elm’s Capiz Shell Chandelier for her baby’s nursery. Sara started with a hanging plant basket, spray painted it white, and then added ribbons with colorful paper circles that she punched from cardstock. As Sara points out, “you could use this method for creating something sleek and chic for any room in your home. Just swap out the colors and even the type of cardstock and you’ll have a neat faux chandelier that you can use to fancy up a boring corner of your space.”

Wall décor comes in many forms and definitely isn’t limited to framed art and canvases. Elisa from The Self Life added some dimension and interest to her daughter’s nursery with a decoupaged deer head created from a craft store figurine. I love how Elisa clustered the deer on the wall with other items for a gallery effect. Too cute!
Leah of Moss Eclectic had only one item on her must-have list for her son’s nursery – a rope mirror like the beauty she’d been admiring from Restoration Hardware. Since the $650 original would have totally blown the nursery budget out of the water, Leah instead turned the friendly-on-the-wallet IKEA for a round mirror. With some eye hooks and thick rope, Leah created this awesome replica!
