My friend Sarah, from Play 2 Learn with Sarah, is in the process of adopting an adorable little girl from China. She’s been very busy getting ready for her daughter’s arrival and a few weeks ago she posted pictures of the nursery. She was showing us of how she was decorating it with vinyl decals. It made me think of Nick’s nursery because we used a lot of vinyl decals to decorate it too. Then I realized that since I started Rock-A-Bye Parents after Nick was born I had never posted pictures of his Winnie the Pooh themed nursery. I know Nick is 2, but his room looks pretty much the same as the day we brought him home, so I thought it would still be fun to share it now.
Long before we knew whether Nick would be a boy or a girl I knew I would do Winnie the Pooh as the nursery theme. I loved that it could be gender neutral, so it could be used for any and all kids we may have. Plus my brother had a Winnie the Pooh nursery and my mother had kept some of the things from it.
The pictures weren’t in Nick’s nursery when he first came home. We actually found them when he was a few months old at a Mom-to-Mom sale. There is a picture for each season.
Nick’s bedding set didn’t have matching curtains, so I had to find some that worked. I think the ones I found complimented his set nicely. The color went well with the carpet and walls too.
Like Sarah I used cool vinyl stickers in Nick’s nursery. Honestly those things are so darn cool! I bought two different sets of stickers for the room. I first bought a multi pack of decals that we used on different pieces of furniture. One of the things I love is that many of the things in Nick’s nurseryare items from my nursery as well as my brother’s. The rocker and toy box were in my nursery although we repainted them to match the Winnie the Pooh theme.
I think my favorite part of Nick’s nursery is the other decal I got. It is a large decal of the map of the Hundred Acre Woods. Every time I look at it I’m reminded of the start of The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh when the book opens. I absolutely love it!
Of course every room needs some cute extra touches too. The light was from my brother’s nursery.
I still love Nick’s nursery. The only thing missing is a blanket that I have been cross-stitching to hang above his dresser. I started it before he was born, but I still have a lot to go. Maybe I’ll finish it before we have another kid? Yeah not holding my breath! I’m still trying to finish his Christmas stocking, and he’s 2!
