Chic and fun safari nursery

Choosing a theme for the nursery is usually very easy because most new parents go with the typical pink for girls and blue for boys, dolls and ponies for girls and cars and robots for boys. It’s a clichee that nobody even thinks about. Still, this doesn’t mean you can’t come up with new idea for the nursery. Here’s an example of a very original nursery décor. It’s a safari nursery and designing it was fun and pretty easy as well.

The first step was painting the walls. Cream paint was used in this case. Then the decorations had to be added. As you can see, there are three impressive trophy heads on the wall. They’re obviously not real. The head have been made of papier-mâché. The rhino, the giraffe and the zebra turned out really nice. They look cute and they’re also quite close to the real deal. This DIY project was very fun and the results and very impressive.

If you decide to approach a similar project make you appreciate the dimensions right because the trophy heads might end up bigger of heavier than expected and then you would have to start all over again. The idea of making papier-mâché decorations is actually quite clever. The items will integrate nicely in the nursery and you can basically create anything you want. You just need imagination, creativity and lots and lots of patience. Also, it would be nice to have some help from friends.{found on atticmag}
