Recently, I won a pretty awesome giveaway, so I thought I would share what I did with my bounty. I got a wall decal from EvgieNev. I picked out a beautiful design with bird cages, but it was too big for the space I wanted it in, but that wasn't a problem at all. They were super amazing to work with! They shrunk it down and I also got to customize the colors.
It came right before we left to visit my parents for Thanksgiving, but as soon as we got home I started putting it up. Here are some befores of my girls' room.
It was fairly easy to put up, time consuming and sometimes frustrating, but mostly easy. I tried to follow the directions as closely as possible and it did get faster/easier as I went. Although, the birdcages were super hard. It took me part of an evening and part of a morning to do.
I just love how it all turned out! While I'm at it, I might as well show off a few more details in the girls' room (since it was clean at the moment I was taking pictures). Most of the decor items in there I made.
We'll start above Eleanor's bed. The prints are from hours of scouring Pinterest for free bird printables. The nest one is from here, the bird cage one is from here and the last print is from here, but I cut a pasted a bit to get it to look like that. The stork with the heart was made using the book, Little Birds. The little bird in the corner was supposed to be a door stop for my bedroom, but it wasn't heavy enough so it went into the girls' room. I can't remember where I got the free pattern.
Over to Laurel's side, the tiny bird, mobile, and wreath were all made using the Little Birds book again. The framed pictures is of a bear dressed up like a bumble bee that I cross stitched for Eleanor's bee themed nursery. I used the pattern from this book, from which I also stitched the alphabet, but I didn't take a picture of it. Other items in the room I made are the drapes, valance, and roman shades.
As always, Eleanor and Laurel decided to help out. I hope you enjoyed a little peek into the only room in the house with any sort of theme or even close to being put together. If you have any more fun bird ideas, I'd love to see them!
