Magic Mushrooms

As we are moving, I decided to turn a selling exercise into a styling exercise. So I took the items I want to sell from the girls’ shared bedroom and had fun styling a baby girl’s woodland nursery. I brought in white – a more traditional colour for a baby girl. And lots of new art work.

I love this twist on the Canadian mounted moose head tradition. The framed picture is Clipart proving that beautiful doesn’t have to be expensive.

This is the oldest trick on Pinterest: changing handles on cheaper furniture to make it look more stylish! This is an IKEA HEMNES chest of drawers with super cute ceramic mix matched handles. It’s a great way of taking a chest of drawers you might already own, and turning it into a cute changing table for a kid’s room. You can also change the handles as the child gets bigger, their bedroom décor changes and the changing table becomes a chest of drawers again.

I love these pictures: a page from an old broken Beatrix Potter, a page from Flower Fairies by Cicely Mary Barker (I’ve done a cute HMP Birthday presents project with this book: check out my facebook page) and an image I used for my eldest daughter’s woodland Birthday party invitation.

    Hi, what paint did you use on the IKEA stool you turned into a mushroom? I want to make sure it doesn’t rub off as it’s for a classroom so will be used a lot 🙂

      Hi. I used 2 coats of primer and then acrylic paint. I used fine sandpaper before the primer and in between the coats. It lasted well but did take a few knocks on the rim when really knocked about against the bed (but as the stool is white underneath it didn’t really matter to me). You could also seal it with Rust-Oleum® Chalked Protective Topcoat. Happy making!
