Classic Pooh Nursery Decor - Our Dream Come True Baby Armoire and Crib
Here's the story behind our Classic Pooh Nursery which is truly a dream come true. My husband was named after the Winnie the Pooh character, Christopher Robin. When we started dating in high school we always used to talk about how if we ever got married and had children we would have to decorate with a Winnie the Pooh nursery theme.

When the time came, we decided to go along with the Classic Pooh theme rather than the traditional Disney Pooh where he's seen in the big red shirt. CLASSIC WINNIE THE POOH BABY BEDDING
Bumble Bee nursery bedding since I didn't want the room to have storybook characters everywhere. I felt the bumble bees worked well with the classic Pooh nursery theme
without screaming Winnie the Pooh at every turn. We bought the bedding online at beyondbedding.WINNIE THE POOH CURTAINS and NURSERY DECOR
Our window treatments and some of the decorative accents came as as set with the bedding. However my mother-in-law made this adorable stuffed bear dressed up like a bumble bee for the baby's room. In addition, my husband's great-aunt made a fantastic ceramic piggy bank that she painted and glazed herself. In addition I took a toy bag that came with the bedding and hung it up over the changing table. Not only does it make a lovely wall decoration but the pockets provide storage for the diaper rash cream, petroleum jelly, nail clippers, and all the other things I need for her day to day care.
Our daughters room is also filled with books, stuffed animals and some Classic Winnie the Pooh pictures. And there are more vinyl decals strategically placed around the room. A lot of her stuffed animals, books, and other accessories sit on shelves that we bought from Lowes. For additional storage we put canvas bins inside her armoire that are decorated with Classic Pooh scenes on them. These are helpful in storing extra blankets and clothes that don't fit her quite yet.CLASSIC POOH NURSERY THEME PAINT COLORS
In the classic Pooh baby bedding and nursery decorations, the colors are much softer. We liked the feel of this color scheme much better for a baby's room. The gender neutral design was also perfect for us since we didn't know whether we were having a boy or a girl.
We decided to go with the Disney nursery paint colors and the ones we chose were Bibiddi Bobbidi Blue to paint the top of the walls, Christopher Robin's Swing on the bottom of the walls and then separate the two with a wooden chair rail that we painted white. DECORATING THE POOH NURSERY FURNITURE
Originally I wanted to hand paint the furniture, but I found out that to do so would void the manufacturer's factory warranties. Instead I was fortunate to find removable decals that I used to decorate the furniture.THE CRIB
We decided on the Sutton conversion crib and the remainder of the nursery furniture was from the same collection with the exception of the glider, was from Restoration Hardware's Baby and Child catalog. It was terrifying ordering the furniture without actually seeing it, but the quality is fantastic and we couldn't be happier.
Painting and decorating our classic Pooh nursery didn't take us long at all. There was maybe a week that passed between painting and getting everything set up and in place. It was so much fun to see our silly high school dream come true in a very real way. The most difficult part was locating the nursery decorations and figuring out how to make the furniture look hand-painted without actually doing it.
My husband and I did everything on our own. It was so wonderful to share the time working on this project. I love how our baby nursery ideas
all came together and most of all, I love how my daughter loves the room. When she is in her pretty, Pooh crib or up on the changing table I can see that she loves to look at the bumblebees on her baby bedding. And just like her mom and dad; she is totally thrilled!
