Before & After: Alexander’s Nursery

Hi everyone!

Say hello to Julie, our second featured reader presenting her very own project for her son Alexander. This is one of those wall transformations that require a lot of measuring, leveling and patience! But in the end, the final product is so much fun. Julie says, “What’s my inspiration? Simply to impress my adorable husband and 2 year old baby boy.  I just adore that loving smile from ear to ear & that approving facial expression worth more than a thousand words every time they see a homemade project.” That’s why DIY projects are so worth it! Good job Julie!!!

  • Painter’s tape
  • 4 different paint colors
  • paint brush
  • paint roller
  • measuring tape
  • level

Here’s how to do it

1. Tape up a grid on your wall. This takes some time, so pace yourself. Always make sure you measure correctly and all lines are level. Pssst, here you can also see little baby Alexander’s squishy feet! So adorable!B&A_Alexander_4B&A_Alexander_5

2. Pick your colors. Then make a grid on a paper and assign the colors to each square. Doing this helps to avoid any mistakes on the actual wall. Smart move Julie!
