Peter Rabbit Baby Nursery Theme Forest Animals Wall Mural and Painting Ideas

My husband and I chose a Peter Rabbit nursery theme simply because he and I both love books and wanted to decorate a nursery for our baby that was literary by design and not based on one of the commonly chosen styles or storybook themes.


The colors of the illustrations in Beatrix Potter's books appealed to us.

My husband and I are delighted with the way our Peter Rabbit nursery turned out and can't wait to add the last and most important detail to our baby boy's nursery; our son, Noah.

Here is a step-by-step account of the process:

Peter Rabbit Baby Bedding


We shopped for and purchased the necessities and baby bedding over a period of time. For example, the crib linens were purchased even before I knew that I was pregnant.

Once we got started things moved slowly but steadily along. Painting took an entire weekend since it took one day to prime and tape off the walls then it took another day to paint the base coat and then the mural painting took all of a third day. It took us two to three weeks to actually complete "project nursery".

Choosing the Nursery Paint Colors



We chose to paint three of the walls in the room in an antique white, linen color paint. 3/4's of the accent wall is painted in a fresh forest green color from Glidden called Guacamole.

PETER RABBIT NURSERY WALL DECOR

After we finished painting the base colors of the walls, we started to work on the Peter Rabbit wall mural that was my husband's original creation.

He created the mural using Photoshop editing tools. The design includes a silhouette of whitetail deer, bunny rabbits, a large group of flying geese, a boy under a tree and a girl on a swing as well as other forest animals.

After he had the basic layout we used a projector to display it on the wall so that we could easily trace the outline of the animals using green chalk. After the shapes were in place, we filled them in with green paint.

THE DECORATING PROCESS

None of our Peter Rabbit themed nursery ideas were spur of the moment decisions; we carefully planned every step. This was a DIY project that took shape over the course of many months.



Peter Rabbit Nursery Decor

The Peter Rabbit themed wall hanging, baby bedding set as well as the curtains were bought from Pottery Barn Kids before they discontinued the collection.

The wall clock and the decorative light switch cover was handmade by a vendor that I found on Ebay. I found the wooden wall letters that I used to decorate the space between the closet doors at Michael's Craft store and then painted them in a color that would complement the Guacamole green paint color that we used on the walls.

STORAGE

The baby's closet has ample shelving and hanging space so many of the items that we have purchased so far are arranged there. We also have plans to purchase several decorative canvas storage baskets for the closet as well to place on the bottom shelf of the bookcase as well as a decorative wicker basket that can be used as a clothes hamper. The socks, diapers, wipes and other small items of clothing and supplies are stored in the baby's combination dresser/changing table.

From Jan:
Thanks for sharing your baby boy's nursery pictures with Unique Baby Gear Ideas' visitors, Kristin! You and your husband did a beautiful job on the mural. It is a favorite with many moms and dads-to-be that continue to ask if you would mind sharing your mural pattern with them.

Beautiful Mural
by: Anonymous

Hi,
I guess I'm jumping on board here and asking if it's possible if you can send me the file of the mural in your baby room. It is absolutely beautiful! Your husband did a great job! My husband and I have decided not to find out the sex of our child until he/she arrives, so this mural is perfect for boy or girl.
My email address is
hay.heathers at gmail.com

Thanks,
Heather

Beautiful
by: HuntingMamma

Hi there as an avid angler and hunter, I see the beauty in passing on the traditions of conservation to our children.

I'm currently expecting with my first, a baby girl, and I'm having a very difficult time finding decorating ideas that reflect nature.

I wondered if you would you be so kind as to also send me the file you used for this stunning mural?

I think it would give me a great start.

God bless :) my email is sabri.romano at gmail.com

Adorable Nursery ♥
by: Marilyn S.

Such a wonderful design that you & your husband did for the nursery! I have recently decided to start a small hobby & part time business planning & decorating nurseries and children's rooms / playrooms. I'm hoping to be able to do one or more with the Peter Rabbit theme.
I've found some vintage decoupage art books & material online. I'm so excited to get started with ideas from the Beatrix Potter collection.
