How To Save Money On Decorating The Nursery
You do not need to spend a fortune redecorating in anticipation of the new arrival. This might seem a strange thing for us at Bo Baby to be advising you – but here’s the truth:
We are passionate about being the best.
That means going out on a limb and doing things a bit differently sometimes. We know that without you - our customer - we would be nothing, so it makes sense to provide the best service and ideas to you.
So here are some ways you can avoid overspending on baby nursery decoration while still achieving the desired effect:
1. Paint instead of wallpaper the room. Much less hassle, as well as less time-consuming.
2. Not got the cash for a personalised canvas with the birth date hand stamped on the base? Buy the picture frame of your choice, then once little one has arrived, ask a willing relative or friend to get a photo of the newborn enlarged. People love helping out at times like these.
3. Photos of family members are a great way to decorate the nursery at minimal cost.
4. In any nice gift shop (especially in museums) you can usually find high quality wrapping paper. Have you ever thought of using a sheet of this as a poster? There are some really funky designs out there: funky lions, groovy frogs: you name it, there will be some cash – efficient way to fill in a blank space on your baby’s wall.
5. A variation on the above is to cut out colourful and high-contrast pictures from magazines. These can end up looking scruffy, so make a montage of them and frame it. You’ll probably enjoy the creativity of this mini project, and it beats doing jigsaws!
6. Everyone needs a box for bits and pieces in the nursery. Another way to make use of photos in magazines is to cover any plain box in them, thus creating a 3D montage. You can laminate it with see-through parcel tape. Looks much better than you might imagine, and is another relaxing and creative way to get through those uncomfortable evenings in late pregnancy!
7. Is there something you’ve set your heart on for the baby’s room but can’t really afford? Be bold and just ask someone to buy it as a present for the baby. Or get a friend who likes organising things to have a whip round. This idea won’t work for everyone: some people like the element of surprise when it comes to gift- giving. You know your friends best and if they would go for this.
