Starry Night

posted in: How To - DIY

Our youngest, Livia, is currently in a teeny-tiny little nursery. She doesn't need anything bigger right now, but I do want it to look like a cozy little girl's room, instead of the office/huge closet it might have been before we moved in :). I've always loved the wallpapered ceiling in these two rooms:

Like I said, her room is tiny, and the walls aren't exactly square, so I wasn't confident about tackling a wallpaper project on the ceiling. I had stenciled a wall with the same style star in her big sister's room in another house, but my shoulders were aching just thinking of painting at that angle! So...I cheated. Big time.

I just used wall decals! I found some that were the right size on Amazon, and once they arrived, all I had to do was measure and mark where they'd go on the ceiling. You want to create an even spacing between all of them, and I found it easiest to work in rows to stay on track (even with the odd angles in the room). 

They're metallic and catch the light in a lovely way - Liv is always talking and pointing at them when I get her up in the morning now!

It was such a quick and easy addition to her little room - my favorite kind of makeover!
