Baby Girl Red Gingham Nursery Decorating Ideas - Window Valance and Baby Crib Bedding

I realized very quickly when I started gathering ideas for my baby's red gingham nursery decor that if I was not very careful, the checks were going to take over. Red gingham fabric always looks fresh and pretty, but a little goes a very long way.

I copied the wall painting technique from a picture of a baby girl nursery that I saw online but it didn't have any instructions on how to do it. The first thing I did was
stamp red squares (they are actually a very rosy pink) directly below the crown molding in a checkerboard pattern using a square stamp using the wall color for the light color checks.

Then using painter's tape I taped off the width of my border and sponge painted using green paint that matched the green leaves of my baby bedding fabric.

Using a painter's brush I free-handed the bows using the same red paint that I used to make the checks. Then I painted a few sprays of roses behind the baby's bed.

As I mentioned, total red gingham nursery decor was not the look that I was after. My baby bedding set was made from a vintage rose print fabric and I made a crib skirt (that you can't see in the picture) out of red gingham fabric and sewed a strip of the same fabric onto the window valances.

I toyed with the idea of making red gingham window valances, but to do it this way not only used less fabric but I think it looks as good as one of the custom baby nursery designs that you see in magazines.
