Fine Art Giveaway: Modern Prints for the Modern Nursery

stallion-art

I like to keep mommies in the loop about cool baby stuff, so I have to blog about a great giveaway happening over at Droolicious on Babble.com.

An online gallery featuring customizable fine art, Gallery Direct, is giving away two contemporary pieces that would look great in a nursery or child’s room. Both paintings will be a Canvas Gallery Wrap, which means the image wraps all the way around the edges of the mounted canvas, so you can hang them with or without a frame. Each piece measures 30 x 30 and will be shipped to you free of charge. Retail value for the pair is $400!

Click here to go to Droolicious and find out how to register. Good luck! Again, here is the pair but they won’t be framed.

Nursery Art Gets Preppy Pink and Glorious Green

When I was a kid, the pink and green color combo was king. The preppier, the better. Well, preppy is back and more fun than ever. Take a look at this ‘Tickled Pink and Green’ wall art from Kelly B. Rightsell.

Bright colors and cool characters (even an alligator!) reign supreme in this canvas print. It measures 24 x 30 and the edges are finished in a complimentary color pulled from the art for an extraordinary look.  Perfect for your baby’s nursery, child’s room or playroom. Isn’t it time to bring back the prep. You bet! This print retails for $138.

Forget EyeCandy, Get a Load of WallCandy

This is the coolest wall art I’ve seen. I really wish it had been around much sooner. It’s called WallCandy Arts and it’s really wonderful for adding themes, colors and fun to your kid’s rooms. It can all be easily removed too – that might be the best part! From ferocious dinosaurs to twittering birdies, you can find a theme that suits your decor and your child’s personality. The artwork boasts retro-inspired appeal, adding a unique twist to every set.

Hanging Letters: Buy ‘Em or Make ‘Em

These playful wooden letters can be upper or lower case and measure 10″ H.  All of the letter are hand-painted in black and white with either a red or black ribbon. Expect 12-14 weeks for shipping, so order early to make sure they arrive before baby! Retails for $78 at Post Tots. If you’re the creative type, keep reading…

I decided to do the letters in my son’s room myself. I found some big wooden white letters at Michaels and bought a bunch of paint colors. The hardest part was deciding what to paint, not how to paint it. I couldn’t get too creative because my painting skills aren’t that great. I also decided to do it all free-hand instead if drawing on the letters ahead of time.

I chose camo because it matches his existing wall art and then went with a few things my son likes. I chose flames to represent NASCAR and lightning bolts for Lightning McQueen. And so on for a few more letters. It took a while and I struggled with the cheapo paints. I suggest buying the good paint, not the tiny little sets.

But there’s something to be said for buying them too. They are quite beautiful, especially the black and white. Either way, you and your child will certainly enjoy them!
