rustic pillows for couch How to decorate your kid's bedroom with a jungle theme sofa pillow covers

2019-09-18 16:08:00 custom gift for Anniversary

With its combo of colours and finishing touches, this fun, jungle-inspired bedroom proves you can give a stylish spin to a themed look

If you’re looking for a child’s bedroom scheme that’s neither too young or too grown-up, take inspiration from this punchy, tiger-themed room. A bookshelf that also doubles as a headboard takes centre stage, adding personality as well as a practical place to store and showcase favourite items. If you have the room, add a chair and stool to create a reading area, and finish with some faux or real greenery to bring this jungle-style space alive.

To create this simple ‘Welcome to my jungle’ artwork, paint a round art canvas in Resene ‘Quarter Sisal’. While it dries, hand-cut letters from a sheet of contact adhesive or print out your chosen messagerustic pillows for couch, trace the letters onto the adhesive and cut out. Peel off the backing and stick letters onto canvas, smoothing down the edges so no paint will bleed underneath. Coat entire canvas in a paint colour of your choice – we used Resene ‘Noosa’. Dry overnight then peel off the letters.

This DIY bookshelf-cum-headboard provides a great focal point for a bedroom, as well as being a fun and functional way to keep books or a glass of water handy. Ours is 2.2m wide by 1.8m tall with 6.5cm-deep shelves. Look for an online tutorial to make your own or find a secondhand bookshelf for an upcycling project.

Hello! It’s Ava here today!I have an unusual Christmas project for you… I hope you like it.Non-traditional Christmas trees are very eye catching and interesting. Rustic Vintage mixed media trees tend to draw a person’s interest to take a second look and examine more closely the elements of the presentation.

This wonderful image got us thinking about umbrellas: the brilliance of the IDEA and the brilliance of the actual creation.
