Quick, Easy & Beautiful (Nursery) Art! April 19, 2011 In addition to getting everything together for the RSA install next week, I’ve been hard at work completing a nursery redesign for a client who is scheduled to be induced today (hi Alicia!!). One of the hardest pieces has been finding art for above the crib—I even tweeted a few weeks ago about looking for good books to be used as art in a baby’s nursery, but had trouble finding the perfect look. Low and behold I found it last week at a thrift store in the form of a Little Golden Book (remember those??). I wanted to use a book that had good art but few words–this Bunnies ABC’s was just the thing with it’s slightly yellowed pages and simple (but colorful) illustrations. I took 3 Ikea Ribba frames… Three of my favorite pages… Added a 12×16 mat from Michael’s… Mounted the pages to the back of the fake photo from the mat insert (see above) using good ol’ Scotch tape… And created some pretty beautiful art! I really love how the tint of the pages matches the outside mat and gives it a bit of a custom feel. (don’t worry, images on the back on visible once the frames are on the wall!) Here’s a sneak peak of the finished project… Totally perf, if I do say so myself!
