Gender Neutral Bamboo Tree Baby Nursery Wall Mural and DIY Baby Bedding and Crib Skirt

I am so thankful that my gender neutral bamboo tree baby nursery project is complete and waiting for my son, Sebastian, that is due in the next couple of weeks to arrive.

There were many decorative decisions to make in addition to arranging the furniture according to the rules of Feng shui.

For those not familiar with Feng Shui, it is a complex system that is said to bring balance and harmony to the energies of the nursery and good fortune to the baby inhabiting it.

We decided that black nursery furniture was the best choice for us because the design of the collection would create a room that was both modern and gender neutral.

My first desire for the style of the nursery was to incorporate Paul Frank without decorating the entire nursery in one specific theme.

How to Make a Crib Skirt

I had my mother-in-law sew the crib skirt from Paul Frank fabric and also make a baby pillow as an accent piece. As the fabric has a white background with a pattern including a brown Paul Frank monkey and red accents, I needed to do the rest of the nursery in colors that would coordinate.

Using Baby Nursery Pictures as Inspiration

I spent a lot of time looking at nursery picture galleries online to get detail and organization ideas. Then, one day my sister and I went out shopping and she tried on this really cute dress that was a sort of a mustard/chartreuse color with a bamboo pattern on it.

I loved it and thought that it would make a lovely theme. From that point forward I began to focus on a design based on the bamboo print of the fabric. Since the bamboo trees tied in so well with monkeys (but not in a tacky, totally themed sort of way) the decor just fit.

Choosing the Best Nursery Wall Paint Colors

The fabric in that dress is how the nursery walls came to have mustard yellow color paint with a hint of green (painted by my best friend since I could not paint anything) and my mother-in-law painted the black bamboo tree wall mural.

I also love Sock Monkey, so we added a few sock monkeys to the crib decor and hung a monkey cut-out mobile above the bed (that I bought from Babies R Us).

The best part about our baby boy's nursery is that it can be used again for the next baby when he or she arrives.

I hope that Unique Baby Gear Ideas' visitors picked up some tips from our DIY bamboo wall mural painting, homemade crib skirt or the color scheme that will help them to get the look that they want for their little one's room.

Hi, yes, my mother-in-law just used black craft paint like you get at the craft store and no other color. She used a stencil to paint the bamboo, however I do not know where she obtained the stencil.

Hi, Kelli! I think panda bears and monkeys will both be a good fit for your bamboo wall mural painting! Did you find painting the bamboo to be very difficult or a good DIY project for a beginner (like me)?

To the Anonymous poster who wants to do a panda nursery, my mother-in-law used just black paint that comes in those little bottles at the craft store.

Did you use black paint only to paint the bamboo only like a silhouette painting? Or did you highlight it with another color paint?

I want a baby panda nursery and I'm getting lots of decorating ideas from your baby boy's room even though you put the focus on monkeys.
