With the cot ready and the change table fully-stocked, the stage is nearly set for bub’s arrival. Now it’s time to breathe new life into boring walls with some fabulous nursery wallpaper.
Just like wall stickers, nursery wallpaper is fabulous for transforming spaces. It’s also easy to apply and more durable than paint, making it a smart choice when crafting a space that (messy) little humans will call their own.
