I enjoyed reading this post awhile back where Meredith tapped into the inspiration of a popular home decorating catalog. In that spirit, here are some "hacks" now hanging in my home. =)
A year or so ago, I saw a giraffe print in the PBK catalog that I thought was really cute (However, it was $289!!) I put the page in my idea notebook for reference, and came across it this winter when decorating Nathan's room. One of our favorite babysitters (who unfortunately moved away!) is very talented artistically, so I asked her if she would be willing to try her hand at painting the giraffe for Nathan's room. Didn't she do a fabulous job? We love it--thank you, Kelsey!
When I saw this darling name banner, I thought it would be easy to create one myself at a fraction of the cost. I love how it turned out, and I spent less than the price of one of the catalog letters ($2.95):
