Stripe it Rich!

Animal Mural Baby Nursery

Paint is the easiest and most affordable way to change the look of a room. You can add even more interest to the space with a little painter’s tape and some imagination. The favorite nursery on my “” blog has vertical stripes in shades of cream, green, and brown.
