Decorating our baby's nursery in a Winnie the Pooh theme seemed the best choice since we wanted to keep the baby's sex a secret and then have a reveal party to surprise our parents.

In order to keep our secret, we needed a theme that would work with a neutral color scheme.

Ideas for Decorating the Baby's Nursery in a Winnie the Pooh Theme

We were browsing the book rack looking for storybooks for the baby when this idea came to us!

Choosing the Best Nursery Paint Color
We picked the colors for the background from Disney's wall paint color line. We used a color called Bibiddi Bobbiddi Blue to paint the sky and Tinker Bell Green for the grassy parts of the wall mural.

Winnie the Pooh Nursery Wall Mural Painting Ideas

After the background of the nursery mural was painted we hand sketched the storybook characters and painted them in a few coats. To make the project go quicker, we used fast-drying acrylic paint(s) to paint Pooh Bear and his friends from the 100 Acre Wood including Eeyore, Tigger, Piglet and Kanga and Baby Roo.

Furnishing our Classic Pooh Nursery
The nursery furniture that we chose is made by Simmons and was bought from Clossics in Delaware.

Custom Nursery Window Treatments
Since our mural more or less set the tone for the room, we didn't feel it was necessary to buy
Winnie the Pooh Curtains and pooh crib bedding. Instead, our lovely, neutral window treatments were custom made by a friend of ours. The fabrics that we used to make the curtains were imported from Hawaii and are made specifically for darkening the room.

How Long Did the Project Take To Complete?
Getting everything painted, decorated and in place took less than you might think; it took us about 2 weeks.

Decorating the nursery isn't the hard part; the waiting is the hardest part! We are so anxious for the little one to get here and hope that Unique Baby Gear Ideas has enjoyed seeing our work in progress!

Not old-fashioned
by: Christopher

My wife kept insisting that the Winnie the Pooh theme was old fashioned and refused to consider it even though I liked the idea very much for our baby boy's room. My mom and dad used to read me these books and their nickname for me was "Christopher Robin" so when she asked me what I thought: I said Winnie the Pooh, of course!

I am pleased to report that since we visited this site that she has changed her mind and is now on board!
