Hand Painted Nursery Wall Designs

custom hand painted alphabet nusery wall muralCustom hand painted designs are a perfect way to individualize a nursery.

Mr Shops and I are anxiously awaiting the arrival of Grandbaby #2.  While I helped DD2 decorate her eclectic gender neutral nursery, DS 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 owner’s of these nurseries had the time and talent to take their ideas and run.   Inspired by their lettered crib bedding, this alphabet mural was created on the computer, projected on the wall, then the letters were hand painted.

hand painted color block nursery wall As the song says, it’s hip to be square.  A nursery becomes modern country chic with a color block wall, gingham quilt and contemporary chandelier.

custom hand painted harlequin pattern nursery wallThis harlequin wall treatment uses two paint finishes for contrast.  Just like the alphabet wall, mixing finishes creates a great visual effect.

custom hand painted chevron nursery wallI 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 under the edge of the tape.  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.
