Giveaway & Review: Hand Painted Wall Letter from The Framed Frog [CLOSED]

"Room to Play" Product #8

Since we were redoing our daughter's side of the room. We took down all the posters that were just a mix of everything from Littlest Pet Shop to Disney Pixar Cars. We wanted the area around her bed to be pretty and cheerful. The "All Around the Mulberry Bush" Hand Painted Wall Initial from The Framed Frog boutique was exactly what I had in mind.

Look how beautifully wrapped my daughter's wall letter was when it arrived! If you are purchasing for a gift, then you do not need to worry about the presentation because this item comes wrapped and ready-to-give.


This 3d wall initial is hand painted over a paper mache letter. This makes it ultra-light weight, so I do not need to worry about it falling off the wall while hanging above my daughter's bed. I had the option to change the design and color scheme, but the example on The Framed Frog Etsy Shop is what I fell in love with.


What makes this particular wall letter stand out from those in other boutiques is that they are also personalized with your child's name. This is truly a work of art. It is even signed by the artist on the back.


Take a look at how flawless the artwork is. There is not one misplaced speck of paint or one missed spot.


For this particular wall letter, you can choose between a ribbon hanger, keyhole, or no hanger at all. I opted for the ribbon hanger. I think the artist did a wonderful job selecting the ribbon colors. They are very soft and serene . . . pretty, but does not take attention away from the "M'. If I ever change my mind about the ribbons in the future, I need only pry the staples loose to remove them.


My 3 year old daughter's favorite parts of her wall initial are all the pink parts. It is her favorite color after all.


Visit The Framed Frog on Etsy to see their full selection of hand painted and personalized gifts. You can see more examples of their products on the Scrappy Frog blog, Scrappy Frog on Twitter, and The Framed Frog on Facebook.
