diy hand painted window panels with ninja and cityscape for nursery decor -

The main wall in the nursery required some cool custom-designed panels for the window per my original design plan.

I can’t just buy furniture for the nursery and then hope it fits. I also had a budget that I wanted to stay under and a plan was necessary to stay within that budget. As with my home redesign and redecorating projects, I like to draft up the room layouts in WORD with a scale […]
