When I was pregnant, I had a sleep in one morning and hubby surprised me by painting the nursery. It looked fantastic and really inspired me to get crafting some things to go in it. We chose Dulux Timeless Grey for the walls and my plan was to have orange accessories.
I painted it with Roman’s $2 watercolours. Because I used cheap sketch paper, the first one got a bit too wet and the paper balled up, so I waited for it to dry and then traced the fox onto another sheet. I was much more careful painting the second one and I’m thrilled with it! Next time, I would use proper watercolour paper though.
The frame is an Ikea one that I’ve had for ages. It was natural wood, so I sanded it lightly and spray painted it white. I got the matboard from a local framers and matched the colour to the blind in the room. All up, I think this project cost $15, which is pretty good for some original art…even if it is by me!
