Alphabet Walls for a Nursery or Playroom

Decorating a nursery is one of the most fun rooms to decorate in my opinion! I've done two very different nurseries over the years in my own home. My biggest dilemma was always the decor. You want it to be "baby", but not TOO "baby"! So here are a few ways to display your ABC's on a focal wall!

I love this idea. You can get this look with boxed ABC flash cards cut with a scalloped scrapbook cutter, then paint the edges with a light brown paint to get the aged look. Paint a solid wood board or a canvas the color that goes with your room and tack them on with tack nails! Simple, easy and adorable!

A hodge podge of letters! I love this. Be creative ~ a traffic light sign as the I, a nautical life ring as the O and a decorative cross as the T. Great ideas with this one!!

Another nautical life ring, AND the world globe as the W! Think outside the box for a dramatic wall!

These antique flash cards are a great way to display the ABC's in individual frames. This is a great, inexpensive way to make a statement in a child's room or playroom.
