Hand Painted Nursery Wall Designs

Mr. Shops and I are anxiously awaiting the arrival of Grandbaby #2.  While I helped my daughter decorate her Eclectic Gender-Neutral Nursery, my son and his family settled many miles away.  I was asked for artwork suggestions, and Mr. Shops went to Chicago for a few days to help paint. While Baby E’s room was simply painted, the owners of these nurseries had the time and talent to elaborate their ideas. Inspired by their lettered crib bedding, this alphabet mural was created on the computer, projected on the wall, then the letters were hand painted.

nursery wall designs - custom hand painted multicolor chevron nursery wall - Lowes via AtticmagI just love this bold, colorful chevron design. The bright colors remind me of summertime.  By using the base coat (wall) color to seal the edges of the tape, letting that dry, then painting the pattern, the paint won’t bleed.  Carry a couple of the center chevron stripes onto adjoining walls, stopping at door or window frames, to visually connect the walls.

    I am in awe over the letters… What a great idea and great look! There is a lot of work in that one. I also like the harlequin, which is kind of a surprise, as I’m not usually into that pattern. I guess the soft contrast helps.
