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.

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.


Disney Nursery Pictures and Decorating Ideas



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.

Nursery Wall Decorating Ideas


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!

Excellent hand painted wall art
by: Kate

I am so happy that I found this website with so many examples of hand-painted art for the walls. Now, the problem is how to make up my mind on which project I want to paint. Your cheerful Disney nursery is definitely at the top of my list; it is awesome!

Best Paint for Mural Painting Purposes
by: Gail

What is the best paint to use to paint a mural over flat latex wall paint? I know that the answer will most probably not be oil but if someone will tell me whether I should buy bottles of craft paint or just another color in wall paint I would be most appreciative.

Paint recommendations
by: Lyrica

To answer the other poster's question; I believe that the rule is to use acrylic over acrylic, latex paint over latex, etc.

Acrylic Craft Paint
by: Nila

I have a lot of acrylic craft paint left over from a recent project and wondered if it would work over latex wall paint.

Disney Wallpaper Border for the Nursery
by: Desiree

I have been shopping for Disney wallpaper border for the nursery and have been very disappointed by what is available in stores. My husband may need to shop for a ladder and painting supplies to paint a mural rather than wallpaper. I love your border and would love to have one like it in baby blue but I can't do it myself.

Mural Pattern
by: Dollie

Would it be possible to use a projector to draw the outlines of the Disney characters and then paint them? I have looked for a Disney mural pattern online and have not found one yet.

Disney Nursery Mural Tutorial
by: Sheri

I love your mural painting and wondered if there might be a tutorial with further instructions or a download for the outline of the design? This is one of the best craft ideas I have seen and I really would like to include it in my baby's room that has very tall ceilings.

WOW
by: Stevie

Absolutely wonderful! Did you find it cheaper to do your own custom painting and to make your own nursery curtains rather than finding and buying ready-made themed items?
