I wanted to share this quick nursery sign upcycle I did for my daughter’s room. Check out my room tour to see the rest of it. I got a heck of a deal on this metal “dream” sign at Michael’s. It was one of their rare 80% off clearance sales and I couldn’t pass it up.
I loved this sign as is, however the silver metal color did not match either of my daughter’s rooms. It’s a decent size, and I bought it for $8.00! I figured, even with the cost of a can of spray paint, it was still a great bargain.
I spray painted it gold with Krylon’s Metallic Gold spray paint. I only had to do 3 light coats and spray painted the front only.
The rustic twine hanger didn’t quite match either, so I used some lace ribbon I had to replace the hanger.
I hung it above my daughter’s bench seat in her nursery. I love this area. My older daughter and I sit there all the time and read stories. It’s great because it doubles as hidden storage, so inside is a bunch of toys that we will be handing down once little Nala gets older. The pictures are a little fuzzy because of the lighting.
This sign was the perfect final touch to the room and in just a few simple steps I made it work. In case you missed it, check out the rest of the nursery. I posted a room tour a while back. It is filled with bargains, but you would never know it! The clearance section is always my first stop at any store. It goes to show that you can create a beautiful space on a budget with a little creativity.
