Our Cheery Disney Nursery
(Dallas,TX Texas USA)
The ceiling mural that we painted in our baby's Disney nursery
The ideas for this DIY decorating project started with a dream for our baby's cheery Disney nursery design the very moment that we found out that we were expecting a boy. From the very beginning of the planning stages of the room we knew that we did NOT want the standard pale blue wall paint color.
We both love classic Disney things but are both artists and wanted this room to be unique and special.
We decided instead of going with a pre-packaged Disney nursery theme, we would create our own. Go here to see more
My husband and I worked together to complete mural painting and then I made the crib set myself.
I picked similar colored, but fairly plain, fabric to use in sewing the curtains as well as a crib skirt and a crib sheet.
I also covered the shade of a cheap table lamp that I found in the same fabric and my hubby spray painted the base.
We chose a pale green and a creamy yellow paint color for the baby's nursery walls and we used the green to paint in the characters of the ceiling mural.
I started by sketching a Disney mural consisting of Disney character silhouettes which my husband then drew on the slanted portion of the ceiling on two walls of the room.
We picked some of our favorite Disney characters and sketched them out on pretty cream colored paper which we framed and put around the room to fill the artwork requirements in our baby's cheerful Disney nursery along with some of our favorite Disney character stuffed animals.
If you like the look of our painted border, there is a Peter Rabbit nursery wall mural painting
that features silhouettes that is similar to our Disney mural that you might want to see.
After we were finished, my husband surprised me with painting clear glow in the dark paint all around the mural that looks like twinkling stars and magic! This painting technique was such a fun addition to the room and one of the most original of our ideas.
I hope that our pictures and Unique Baby Gear Ideas
nursery tour will inspire other parents that love Disney to use their crafts skills to create their own designs. Now our little guy just has to hurry and get here so he can see his room!
