My best friend’s son recently turned ONE (well, it was mid-summer, but I want to keep thinking it’s still July and we still have plenty of summer days ahead!) and I had been thinking about something nice and customized for his room for a while.

So, I came up with this simple idea and with some help (!!!) from my little toddler we came up with a cute wooden name tag in boyish colors! The “making of” was quick and fun, you just need some wooden shapes and letters and acrylic colors!

Striped Nursery – So chic!

by

Hello World!

First of all, I apologize it has taken me so long between one post and another lately… last weeks have been pretty crazy, and I’ve been really busy with other major projects I will be shortly sharing with you all!

Today I would love to share some ideas about decorating the nursery… with striped walls!

I’ve always been thinking that a striped wall can add a special allure to the whole room, like a romantic mood if it comes in pastel colors or a funky vibe if it features bright and pop colors. We’re obviously talking about a … Read more...

My Paintings for my daughter’s nursery

As promised, I’m showing today how I decided to decorate the walls in my daughter’s nursery… with Disney characters and lots of bright colors!! At first, my idea was to go for mural paintings directly, realized with acrylics colors on the bare walls. But then I thought that maybe painting on canvases would be a better idea, first because I’m more confident with oil colors (they dry much slower, you are allowed to work much calmer) and then also because I didn’t feel comfortable with the idea of leaving my paintings behind one day, if we will perhaps move … Read more...

DIY Fairy Mobile

by

Fairyok

My latest addiction? Sculpting with fommy! In Italy it is also known as moosgummi, a thin layer of colored foam that gets very plastic when heated, allowing tridimensional creations!

To practice a bit with with this material I decided to go for a nursery mobile… isn’t this cute? The body of the fairy was made out by felt roses, to which I hanged romantic and scented bars of soap as well as small bells. Head and wings are made with Renkalik Fommy, and decorated with Sharpie and glitters!

I love it! And my toddler does, too!!

Easy DIY: Lamp makeover for the nursery

lamp makeover cover

This is a super easy, yet very cute project that I did some time ago, while still planning and setting up Minnie’s nursery.

I had bought a cute and feminine bedside lamp at Zara Home, yet it seemed too anonymous to me… So with just a few touches I changed its appearance and made it look much more suitable for a cute nursery! First of all, I spray painted the wooden base of the lamp ’cause it was plain white, while I wanted it to match all the other furniture pieces in my daughter’s room, which are a pale … Read more...
