Liv’s nursery has this very cool tree painted on the wall by her Grandma and Great Aunt:
So neat! They created it from a magazine clipping that I had pulled long long ago, and I have to admit that it’s probably one of my favorite wall designs that they painted for the nursery. I love the patterns in the leaves – and I love that owl! He’s peeking down over the shoulder of whomever is reading a book to Liv in the rocking chair.
More recently, the glider was moved to the crib side of the room to make space for a new play/reading nook complete with table and chairs.
I’ve been thinking about ways to create a fun little art and reading station in this corner as well, and how I can creatively add some above-table storage for books, crayons, play dough containers and the like. My first thought was to paint a few spice racks from Ikea the same burnt red as the changing table and install them below the owl and above the table.
My goal is to make it less complicated (maybe three total shelves?) and a little more on the focus of the actual tree design rather than books (so that all of that beautiful artwork is not hidden). But I think with a little moderation and modification it can be a very cool idea!
And that’s my new weekend project!
