When we were approached by celebrity nursery designer Vanessa Antonelli to be a part of Dancing with the Stars' Peta Murgatroyd and Maksim Chmerkovskiy's baby nusery, we couldn't have been more excited.  They requested a custom off-white elephant head with gold tusks to be hung above the fireplace in their son Shai's baby nursery.  We painted one for them, packed it with love and care, and shipped it off to them in anticipation of seeing it as part of a professionally designed nursery.  Shop the elephant head here.

"Our house has a lot of cream and gold, therefore we wanted Shai's room to be an extension of this and feel royal and plush," Peta told Entertainment Tonight. "Over the years, Maks has collected a huge range of elephant ornaments. We loved the idea of incorporating them in Shai's nursery for good luck, but only if the trunk was up."  Our elephant head wall mount was the perfect addition to the nursery.
