Inexpensive Artwork for Childrens’ Rooms

Some of the most beautiful art can be found in children’s books. And what an inexpensive way to decorate?

Remember the curtains I bought at Ikea this weekend for my little guy’s bedroom?? (below) Well, the first thing I thought of when I saw them was My Father’s Dragon by Ruth Stiles Gannett (above)– one of my favorite books as a kid. How fun would it be to use the book for art?

And also, how about The Saggy Baggy Elephant by K.B. Jackson with illustrations by Tenggren? (below)I think it would work perfectly.
The colors are vibrant and the story takes place in the jungle, which is exactly what the curtains remind me of.
Christian loves the book and loves naming all the different animals & making animal sounds. I think it would be so fun for them to be blown up & framed as a set of prints on the walls.
The crocodile (below) is one of my favorites. It’s the illustration that made me want to start framing this book because it’s just so vibrant & pretty.
How cute is Sookie the elephant’s belly below??!!
Ok, I know I’ve shown an insane amount of this book by now, but just one more. (I can’t help myself they’re too cute!!! 🙂 At this part Christian always points to the elephant in the center and says “baby” and then points to 2 big elephants and says “mommy – daddy.”

And another of my favorite books is Murice Sendak’s Where the Wild Things Are. The fabric below comes in a green & aqua colorway and when I saw it I immediately thought of Where the Wild Things Are. (I wish I had an image of the fabric in the right color but hopefully you see the connection anyway.)


I LOVE LOVE LOVE this book. The images are beautiful and the story’s great.

When I was little, the library we went to had a big Max doll (wolf suit and everything) that came with the book when you checked it out. He was probably as big as me and it was awesome. Christian has an old furry snow suit that looks like Max’s wolf suit and he sometimes puts it on and runs around growling.

 

The illustrations are softer & I think they almost deserve a room of their own. My original idea was to have Christian’s new room be “where the wild things are” with letters spelling “WILD THING” above the bed, but then I found the really cheap Ikea curtains. Maybe Baby 2 will get to be the WILD THING??? (The Napping House is also a contender.)

We’ll see… That fabric is much more expensive so… Anyway, there are so many beautiful children’s books out there!! It’s a really inexpensive way to decorate and kids will love it. (and you will too!!) Can’t wait to show you finished pictures. Christian is getting his “big boy bed” soon so it’ll be shortly!!! What are some of your favorite illustrated children’s books?? Do you have any book artwork on your walls?
xoxo,
lauren
