Simple Display Project for Nursery/Kids Room

Wednesday, March 2, 2011

Yesterday afternoon was beautiful so it gave me the perfect chance to get outside to whip up this super simple project for the girls' new room. I found the framed fruit bowl print buried in the back of my closet, where it's been for nearly 4 years since we moved into this house. I simply tore apart the paper backing and removed all the staples and then removed the print, mat, and glass. Then I took it outside along with a wall hook that I picked up for $2 at Hobby Lobby.

A can of dove white spray paint (@ $3) was all that was needed to transform these items into a cohesive art piece for the wall. I gave it about 2-3 coats, allowing it to dry between sprays. Once dry I removed the D-rings that were already on the back of the frame and screwed them into a vertical arrangement instead of the horizontal position they came in. I forgot to take a photo of this step but it was super easy. Just measure and mark and then screw into their new places.

Then I just marked the wall where I wanted the frame to hang and hammered in a few nails. Do the same with the wall sure to paint your screw heads white as well so they don't stand out. Hang a cute infant sweater, gown, dress, etc. This was my pink sweater from when I was an infant. Cute, huh?! This was so easy to do, only cost a few dollars and it looks great in any kid space! Try it! I'm working on finishing a few more things and then I'll reveal the entire room re-do! Happy Wednesday!


  1. very beautiful. It's so soft and lovely.

    Nice job!

  2. You are a fabulous photographer! Stunning!!! Such a sweet, sweet frame! Love the entire look!

  3. I love it! I think hanging things inside an empty from is genius.

  4. What a great idea! Maybe I'll have a girl someday to put this in her room :)

  5. Lovely! I'm visiting from 320*Sycamore, who featured this on her blog.
