Andra Coulter of Alberta created this great space for her son Mason, who was born just a few weeks ago. I'm featuring it here not only because it's so cute but also because Andra used two great DIY projects to make it look go good.
Let's start with the dots and circles (which you know, if you've been reading recently, I just adore).
Andra made these using rubber placemats she found at Walmart and then cut to size. For some placemats, she cut out the middle; for others she cut the outside to make them smaller.
I love the colors she chose for the dots, the sizes she cut and the way she arranged them on the wall. It looks so professional!
Andra also made the adorable artwork.
"No worries about baby getting harmed if he pulls it off the wall," Andra wrote on HGTV's Rate My Space, where she posted photos of her nursery. The "artwork is simply foam covered in brown tissue paper, with scrapbook paper glued on top!"
She told me later it's a project she uses with the special-needs children she teaches.
Andra also made the crib skirt and bought the bookcase at IKEA. Overall, it's a great job on a budget. Thanks Andra for sharing your project with us.
