Contemporary Baby Animal Nursery contemporary-nursery

Contemporary Baby Animal Nursery

Our contemporary-meets-traditional nursery fits perfectly in our 1930s home and offers plenty of handmade projects to inspire. When we didn't know the sex of our new baby, we opted for a gender-neutral baby animal-themed space. After meeting our little girl, coral was brought in as an accent color through the curtains, bedding and artwork. Handmade projects include: custom glider cushions, a made over changing table, felt butterfly mobile, hand painted wall art, matching crib bedding, fabric pennant, coral curtains, fabric lined bookshelf and baby clothing art.

How to paint bathroom tiles - Bought a resale and can't immediately afford to replace the bathroom tiles. How do I paint over or use some sort of painting technique to camouflage basic 4x4 shiny white tiles?

Hi Laura, I think you may have posted your question in the wrong place?

Thanks! For the wall with the stripes, did you bring the color down to 25%?

Actually down to 35% for the stripes, but a more drastic transition would look nice (the stripes in this room are very subtle).

Sure, you'd just have to paint at a slant which could be tough.

Hi, the glider is by Stork (we found it on Amazon at a great price) and I had slip covers for the cushions made out of a favorite fabric from Thibaut. You can read more about it by searching the nursery posts at: Thanks!
