After finishing up the natural bird mobile, I was ready to get to work on that big, empty space above the dresser. You know, that big space right in the center, smack in the focal point of the room. I wanted something interesting enough to fill that wall, but not too big or crazy that it would compete with the old world mural.
I did a quick internet search and was shocked with all the different versions already out there. The internet is the best little inspiration machine ever. (Well, when used for good instead of evil that is.) I've linked all the images so you can check back to their original awesomeness if you like.
At the end none of these looks really fit the feel I was going for with this nursery, so I took a little time to create my own. This kick bootie free font I found has a very natural and rustic feel to it. Almost as if the type is made of different patterns of flannel.
Note: I do realize that Elton John's version is, "...life is while you're..." but the Moulin Rouge version says, "...life is now you're..." and for baby I feel like that one is a bit more fitting. And here it is in an Ikea Ribba frame:
And because I'm a giver, if you're interested, I'm adding my version to the other fabulous options on the web. You can download it here. I sent mine to Costco and printed it as a 16"x20" for only $6. Enjoy! More fun Nursery projects to come next week- we're almost ready for this little bambino!
