Decorating the Baby's Nursery in a Winnie the Pooh Theme
(Aston, PA USA)
A complete view of our mural painting in our baby's Winnie the Pooh nursery
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.
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.
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!
