Starlight, star bright, first star I see tonight . . . Catch a falling star and put it in your pocket . . . Twinkle, twinkle little star, how I wonder what you are . . .
Decorating and adding color to the walls of a house you don't own is a challenge. This is the challenge I face. All of the walls in our house are as white as the snow that never seems to go away outside. It didn't seem to bother me that much until I saw my oldest daughter's little profile shot on my third ultrasound. All of the sudden I had an urge to add color, design, dimension to the walls of a room in our house that this little bundle could call hers.
That brings me to my explanation for why nursery rhymes about stars and wood craft week converge into one post. I used both stars and wood to add much needed color, design and dimension to the walls of a room with white walls. This is a great way to decorate a nursery or kid's room in a rented apartment or house.
I bought wood star shapes in various sizes, wood letters to spell a variety of words and my daughter's name, painting canvases, super strong sticky tack, paint and sponge brushes all from my beloved Hobby Lobby.
I chose letters to spell dream, laugh, love, play, hope, believe and painted them with various colors. Then I used massive amounts of stainless sticky tack to adhere them to the wall. I also painted stars in various shapes and used them to accent the words, the mirror, a window and the door.
