Create Easy DIY Baby Nursery Pictures
Children's stories and Nursery Rhyme Art

What's your baby nursery theme? Whatever the theme may be I'm sure that there is some kind of art to match the theme. Framed art prints can run you a pretty penny these days. I can show you how to create framed art baby nursery wall decor the cheap and easy way.

Actually, I have used this idea to decorate many rooms in my home, not just the baby nursery. I love art, and I love to have tasteful pieces in as many rooms as I can, but artists paintings really are quite expensive. Not all of us can afford to spend money on these extravagances. But this doesn't have to keep you from enjoying great art in your home.

Let me introduce you to two of my very good friends: the Library and the local Copy Shop.

Do you have a nursery rhyme or children's story theme for your baby nursery decor? Search for old books featuring children's stories or nursery rhymes. If you are anything like me you probably already have a collection of children's and art books laying around just full of gold to use as baby nursery wall decor.

So here's what you do. Take these pictures down to your local copy shop and have them color copied. The color copy machines at the copy shop have capabilities to enlarge your pictures up to as large as an 8 1/2" by 11" and sometimes bigger. They can also adjust the colors and hue. The copies will probably run you about $2.00 or so each but this is a small price to pay compared to actual art prints.

Now to turn those color copies into baby nursery picture decorations. Turn them into baby nursery wall decor! All you need is a picture frame. Maybe you already have a picture frame or two just laying around in your attic or closet. Great! Have your color copies sized perfectly to fit the frame. Otherwise I suggest you go shopping.

You can find great picture frames for less if you shop in the right places. One place I like to shop for really basic frames is Ikea. You can even get the most basic wooden picture frame for around $1.50. You can stain the wood, or paint the wood to make it match the art print or your nursery colors.
Check your local department stores clearance sections as well as discount stores. Another great way to get cheap and interesting picture frames for your baby nursery pictures is to shop the thrift shops, bric-a-brac stores, and yard sales. Not to mention flea markets. Shopping for bargains turns creating your DIY baby nursery pictures into an adventure. It's fun and in the end you will have a great baby nursery with a unique quirkiness that no-one else will have. And it will feel good that you created it all.
