Looking for an alternative to Winnie the Pooh borders?
Claim that vertical real estate for better uses before posters of rock stars and teen idols appear. (Sadly that happens sooner than you might imagine.)
We found two great solutions to help in your poster avoidance quest.
wallcandy arts offers a collection of funky wall decals that go on as easy as ‘peel, stick, decorate’. The perfect solution to your blank slate, wallcandy removes easily without a trace allowing for creative adjustments from time to time.
Older children love rearranging the decals on walls and creating their own ‘modern art installations’. Our five-year old savvy tester has been surprising us every morning with a new Dottilicious masterpiece. There is a design for everyone with 11 patterns to choose from (we’re partial to Pilot’s Planes and Candy Factory) and they’re now available in Canada!
If something just a little more practical is up your alley, Dick and Jane has a great new painted wood bookrack that serves as both a book organizer and a decorative element in any room.
You know the drill. The bookshelf is brimming with favourites but the kids can never find them. Maybe if they could see the front of the books (like the displays at book stores) they would have an easier time choosing.
These racks are handmade with love by a local grandfather, easily mount to the wall and can hold roughly 50 books.
If you’ve always admired that “organized yet playful” nursery school look, then this is the ($95) solution for you.
Also a nice alternative to posters. (What-EVER, Mom.)
