Baby Sock Monkey Nursery Murals
Wall Mural Painting Ideas Featuring Sock Monkey

The artists that painted the baby sock monkey nursery murals that we have featured had designs in mind for the walls that were impossible to create using decals or stickers.  One mom in the process of decorating a nursery for a baby boy that was scheduled to arrive at any moment hired a professional when her efforts to order custom wall decals failed.

Can you guess the most popular baby shower gift that costs less than $20?
Another reason to try your hand at mural painting rather than buying commercial artwork is to get a (more?) perfect color match to fabrics or decorations they had their hearts set on using.




More than a few decorators came to the realization that the colors featured in the sock monkey fabric they had chosen for crib bedding or curtains were very difficult to duplicate in nursery wall decor.

Sock Monkey Baby Bedding


This set of custom sock monkey baby bedding was made using beige chenille, a sock monkey print fabric and a red and white gingham check fabric.


The shades of red or chocolate brown can vary with each dye lot making the search for matching nursery decals very difficult. HERE is a free sock monkey pattern and quite a few ideas for creative color combinations for a baby boy nursery or a baby girl nursery.

Another reason to hand paint sock monkey baby murals is to combine the sock monkey baby nursery theme with other popular baby nursery themes.

Please take note of the unique colors that this artist chose to paint the crew of pirates manning the ship. The rainbow colored monkeys definitely are not depicted in the traditional color scheme but they are charming and really stand out.

AmyBeth, a professional mural painter from the Painted Palette, created this sock monkey nursery mural using a traditional color combination.


The colors of the custom made fitted crib sheet that was sewn using Moda fabric with a cream color background were used as a guide.

Here is a view of the wall that includes the tree with two monkeys playing on the branches and another single branch to the side of the crib with a single monkey waving hello to visitors of this little boy's room.


This room was decorated for a boy but the same design would be suitable for a girl's nursery.



Here is a closeup view of the painting that includes one of the sock monkeys as well as the branch and leaves of the tree portion of the mural. I hope that you have enjoyed the examples of sock monkey nursery murals and that you will return to Unique Baby Gear Ideas and upload pictures of your own painting to inspire other parents.
