How I Added a Sweet Touch to Our Apartment Nursery

When we were moving into our new apartment, I was very pregnant with our little baby. I wanted to do something special for him, but I knew we couldn’t really paint or do too much to permanently change his room. I hit Pinterest to try to find some inspiration!

One of my favorite ideas involved using washi tape to create a temporary, wallpaper-like finish. Not wanting to take the time to do this to all the walls in the nursery, I picked the far wall with the window to create an accent wall.

Here are some before pics:

 

 

 

I bought thick washi tape from Michaels, and got to work.

 

 

 

An important thing to note: I did NOT take the time to make straight lines. My excuse was that I was tired and pregnant. Instead, I just said that it was “whimsical.” Since we were only living here for a short time, this decor was very temporary. If this is something that you want to keep up for a few years, you may want to take the extra hour or two and use a straight edge for a cleaner look.

 


 

Another touch I added was creating a sealed look by lining the corners of the wall where they met the ceiling and window.

 

 

Once it was done, we brought in the furniture and created a cozy space for our little one.
