Nursery Wall Art

Pictures of the nursery are coming soon, but I wanted to highlight a simple to do and inexpensive art project we did for the wall. I love the vinyl wall decals that are all the rage right now, but we have plaster walls that are textured so the decals won't stick. Soooo I picked up a plain stretched canvas on a frame at JoAnns for $8, painted it pink (it's the Restoration Hardware color - Rose. You can buy a little 4oz sample for $4 which was more than enough paint for this little project), and applied a vinyl decal I fell in love with from The Vinyl Studio on Etsy. The project cost less than $35 and makes a big impact in the nursery!
