When I was pregnant I had ideas of grandeur how I was going to decorate my son’s nursery. I went through plenty of decorating books and even bought an expensive image projector so I could easily trace a colorful mural on his wall. WRONG! It wasn’t nearly as simple as it appeared to be. I kept making mistakes as I tried tracing the beautiful animal scene on his wall and ended up just painting over the whole mess. I felt like an artistic failure and gave up on the thought of designing his room.
Two years later his walls were still bare and boring until Greenie2Steps contacted me and sent me an eco-friendly and educational Greenie & Friends whimsical wall art print to review. When I unrolled the art the first thing I noticed was the difference of the texture of the print compared to other adhesive art I tried using in the past. It had a nice fabric feel in contrast to the usual paper or plastic. The print was a large 48 by 12 inches in size, but I was not worried about applying it or making a mistake in the process. All of the Greenie2Steps products can be easily re-applied hundreds of times without losing any adhesiveness or leaving residue behind, so it made me feel at ease during the application.
I decided to place the adorable print right behind his crib which gives him a great view of his new wall art friends that include Greenie, Garrett, Lenny, Geraldine, and Taj. I’m not concerned with him being to close to the art because it is safe and non-toxic. The company uses all eco-friendly water based EcoSol inks, water based laminates, and water based adhesives. He can safely touch it and stretch his imagination as often as he likes too!
I love how just one print made such a huge transformation in the feel of his room. Plus, it also sends him a nice educational message on the importance of caring for the earth! Each one of the Greenie2Steps characters were carefully crafted to have a story behind them and inspires my son to learn about the environment.
When finances allow, I would LOVE to purchase one of the HUGE 90 x 40 inch Green2Steps Eco-Murals for the adjacent wall! The murals are absolutely gorgeous and would take my son on an a daily imaginative journey. Currently there are 3 available murals including Jungle Excursion, Underwater Adventure, and Skies over TelleyGreen. Take a look at the incredible Underwater Adventure…
