nursery animal wall art

Earlier this week we showed you some foxy pallet art for my cousin’s baby shower.  I thought I’d share my good friend’s nursery animal wall art that I made specifically for her baby shower…also her baby gift for her sweet son!  I love how this quick art turned out.  Animal silhouettes painted on wood plaques, distressed a little.  Easy and cute.

I wanted to match my pal Ashlee’s invitation’s color scheme since it was modeled after her darling nursery.  Grays, whites, light aqua and pale yellow.  Her invite had a lion, giraffe and elephant on it so I stuck with those same animals.

A quick google search popped up these cute nursery jungle silhouette images from Wall Pops

This was an easy project, same technique we use in all our stencil projects.  This time I had my favorite 10 year old assistant helping me paint!

Give them a quick sand with your mouse sander (or by hand with light grit sandpaper) then seal with Americana’s DuraClear satin varnish.  Gives it a pretty sheen and will prevent chipping.

Mama loved it.  We ended up using these as decor for the shower before she hung them in baby’s room.  Double use, score!
