I can hardly wait to finish up the Bub’s nursery! I’ve been working away in here for what feels like forever. Today I’m sharing the art I made for next to nothing!
Last fall I finally decided on this crib set from Dwell Studios, called Transportation. It was way more than I wanted to spend but so, so worth it. It’s super cute. More about that post here….choosing that bedding made me a little crazy. Maybe a lot crazy.
Since then I’ve been working to pull the nursery together on a small teeny weeny budget.
Which is why I love this brainstorm! I browsed Etsy and Pinterest for ideas for the wall based on the crib bedding. There are lots of great pieces out there but I wasn’t really prepared to spend any more money. Then I got the idea to attempt something on my own. I can’t draw or do graphics or anything like that.
But I can photocopy! Actually, I’m not sure about that either since I manage to jam the copier at work on a regular basis. (Yes, colleagues, it was me!) But what the heck! I gathered up the bumper pad and ran it downstairs to the color photocopier. It took a couple some a bunch of attempts to get things centered but I was finally able to get 6 photocopied pictures of sections of the bumper pad.
I had previously purchased a bunch of dollar store frames. Can’t actually remember why. I think I just like to buy frames. Anyhow….These were actually $2 each (welcome to dollar stores in Canada! Honestly, they should be called Two Dollar Stores.)
I framed up these babies and wound up with some super cute, super inexpensive art for Bubba’s room. Total cost…$12!!
How much am I loving my color photocopier right now? Yup. A whole lot!
