When my partner and I had our first child as any parents know it’s a crazy time. We had foolishly created what would become a never-ending to-do list, a list that existed 6-months before our daughter was even born.
For some reason when you’re expecting everybody wants to see you more – you’re constantly out for meals and invited to every family event you can imagine. Between family and work commitments the only thing I really ticked off was building the nursery furniture with grandad (I’m useless at DIY).My partner and I quickly discovered that the Pinterest board with all our home improvement ideas was now likely to gather dust. Those DIY projects would just have to wait.
Even though many tasks on our list were replaced with sleep opportunities when our daughter arrived, we did try to find time to add decorative touches to the nursery – cue Etsy!
Turning to Etsy
I had become aware of Etsy sometime before we had our daughter. At that time, it never really appealed to me as it was more of a marketplace for artisan crafts. Over the years, I have seen it evolve into a marketplace not just for craft makers but also graphic/digital designers. I love what Etsy has become, there is so much talent on the site that spans countless creative fields.
I particularly admire what some designers are doing in the digital prints category. There are some impressive wall art designs that you can simply print off on your home printer, or send to an online printer if you prefer. It really is a quick and inexpensive way to add some fun and colourful flourishes to your child’s room. So much so that I purchased a couple of prints and hanged them in my daughter’s bedroom. She loves them, especially her fish print (not my print below).
Joining the Etsy printables club
Etsy’s current offering inspired me to create several of my own wall art prints for nurseries. My tractor and fish prints are vibrant, playful and ideal for adding child-like flourishes to your child’s bedroom. Each 300dpi high-res JPG print comes in a variety of sizes.
- 4×5 ratio file for printing (incl. 4″x5″, 8″x10″, 16″x20″, 40x50cm)
- 3×4 ratio file for printing (incl. 6″x8″, 9″x12″, 12″x16″, 18″x24″)
- 2×3 ratio file for printing (4″x6″, 6″x9″, 8″x12″, 10″x15″, 12″x18″, 16″x24″, 20″x30″, 24″x36″, 60x90cm)
- International paper size file for printing (incl. 5″x7″, A5, A4, A3, A2, A1, 50x70cm)
- File for printing 11″x14″
Having so many size choices to print at home really is fantastic, and to be able to do it so cost effectively is even better. Whatever frame size you have you can pretty much fill.
If you’re like me and don’t like the idea of drilling holes in walls try Command strips. I use them all the time I cannot recommend them highly enough. No permanent damage to walls is the way to go.
