How about doing monogram lettering above the crib with your baby’s initials? I really love this idea. You can tie in the colors of the bedding and window treatments within the lettering.
In this picture, which I found at www.thepinkazalea.com, they did white monogram lettering on coffee brown colored walls. I love how they did more decorative lettering for the girl and bolder simple lettering for the boy. And that white chandelier adds so much charm. Notice that the crib bedding matches, but one is in blue and one is in pink. I think they did a really great job in this twin’s nursery.
How about pink on pink? This is actually a removable wall decal that can be purchased at www.poshtots.com in several color options.
I found this next one on www.worddecor-n-more.com. They offer a wide array of lettering and words. You can even customize your own.
This one is my favorite. I love how they integrated the monogram right into the border. I also love the beige, blue and white color combination. This is perfect for a boy’s room. This type of look is something that he can grow with and enjoy for years to come. By the way, I found this picture at www.whitneyenglish.com. It was done by Julie from www.lemontreepaperie.com. Great job mama!
This last one I like because it looks like they ay have used a metallic gold for the first and last initial in the monogram lettering. The W also looks like it may have been done in a gloss finish paint so it looks like it pops against the pink walls. Again, a simple but yet elegant decor idea for the nursery.
There are several monogram options that you can go with:
1. Stenciled Lettering – There are MANY companies that offer stenciled letters in all different sizes. But you will have to make sure you practice your stencil technique. You want to make sure you don’t overload your brush with paint because it will seep through the stencil and bleed onto the wall causing it to looks sloppy.
3. Hand Painted – Of course, this would be my favorite, just because you can come up with your own font style, size, etc. The easiest way to hand paint lettering on the wall is to use an overhead projector. Project the lettering on the wall, trace with a pencil and the paint in the lines. This is tedious work, especially if the font is a scrolly or detailed font. But there is nothing like putting your sweat into something that is filled with love for your child.
2. Vinyl Lettering or Wall Decals – This option takes the least amount of work. All you have to do is order the letters and slap them on the wall – easy peasy. Just make sure you get the ones that are removable and won’t destroy the wall if you want to take them down later on.
Well, I hope you enjoyed this really great nursery wall decor idea. Stay tuned for more and remember… I always love to hear inspiration & ideas from my readers!
