Modern Neutral Animal Theme Baby Nursery Ideas
What would you think if I told you that the modern nursery ideas that you see in the pictures actually came to me in a dream? They did! In the dream that I had, I painted our baby's nursery walls with boxes.
My husband and I agreed that we didn't want to find out the sex of our baby going into the decorating project.
We chose to paint the room with neutral colors using a design that would be flattering for either a baby girl or boy. Go here to see more
I initially planned to paint all of the walls in a checkered kind of box theme but after I began taping off the walls of the room I realized that the effect was way too boxy. The "box nursery theme" still appealed to me so I just messed around and came up with graphics that are a box inside of a larger box.
After the walls were decorated, I felt that something more was needed. I have always loved the idea of Noah's ark nursery so I added an animal theme to the decor.From the webmaster:
Sarah, I love the bright, cheerful colors that you used to paint the walls. You chose just the right shades of blue, yellow and green as a background for your painted graphics.
It must have taken you hours and hours to tape off all of the squares. Is this a nursery wall painting technique that you would recommend for a beginner or would you say that it's better suited for painters with advanced skills?
Just one more question, did you use flat wall paint or semi-gloss? If you used semi-gloss, did you have any trouble getting the painter's tape to stick?
