My friend, Mary, had a baby recently and about 6 months back she asked me to help her come up with ideas to decorate her nursery! I asked her to search around on etsy and favorite items that appealed to her so that I could get a better sense for her style. A couple weeks later I went over to her house to look at her favorite etsy items and was struck by a selection of photos that had appealed to her from Caroline Mint’s store.
I thought these photos were really sweet and would look just right in Mary’s dream nursery. The only issue was that she needed a bold large piece of art for her wall … and the price for one of these photos that would be large enough for what she needed was out of Mary’s budget. However, at the time Caroline Mint had a deal where you could select several 4×4 photos for $25 – so I had the idea of purchasing the photos and figuring out a way to display them so they made a more impactful statement.
Mary’s husband cut these 5×5 wood blocks, and we painted them gray and sanded down the edges. We then superglued burlap strips to the wood for a little embellishment since Mary’s style is country vintage. Glued the photos to the wood blocks. And as the final touch added a few clothes pins to the top row. We were both pleased with the results! It adds that little touch of girliness to the nursery in a bold way.
