What To Paint and How To Paint It...
Painting Your Nursery Room Walls...
Painted Nursery BordersPainting a border around your baby nursery room is a wonderful way to add your personal touch. It's easy to do and it doesn't take as long as hand painting a whole wall.
Nursery Paint EffectsAnother easy but very effective way to add fun and depth to your painted nursery walls is to use paint effects. These are particularly popular in modern baby nurseries and there is a wide variety to choose from. Some are easier than others but they all produce a very rewarding final effect.
Baby Nursery MessagingPainting a message on your baby's nursery wall adds a gorgeous, personal touch to your little one's room. Choose a message that comes from your heart and expresses your love for your precious butterball.
Baby Room StencilingIf freehand painting is a bit too daunting don't give up - you can always try your hand at stenciling.
Stencils can be used to write a message, create a border or even pull together an entire nursery mural!
Stamping Your Nursery WallsSimilar to stenciling, stamping requires a slightly different technique and is especially effective for creating a border or a small focal area in your nursery. Stamping can also be used to create an entire accent wall - and it's so easy to do!
