How to Match Your Nursery Mural with Your Crib Bedding

by Jennifer Chacos
(Nashua, NH)

I wanted to make a mural on the nursery wall that matched my crib set. It has animals on it in different nature settings, the beach, ocean, arctic, and in the grass.

I am not an artist at all so I had to think about it. I went to the paint store and bought all the colors I wanted to use for the walls and ceiling.

I printed out all the pictures of the pieces I wanted to use and put them in a projector. I projected the pictures on the wall and traced them.

After they were traced I just painted in the line - anyone can stay in the lines. I made sure to trace the picture with a pencil so it was easy to paint over. It is not super easy to see the pencil lines on some colors, so I did one small section at a time so it never got confusing.

The walls matched the crib set amazingly. Two opposite walls are purple so the room wasn't too busy, and the other two walls I painted to match.

On one wall it's striped for the ocean with icebergs, penguins, and a whale. The opposite wall has the ocean on the bottom with big bubbles and a fish, above that is the beach. On the beach is a crab and pelican. In the grass is a lion and a monkey, they are super cute!

All the accessories in the baby nursery play off two shades of purple so the paintings are the major focus in the room. I placed the murals in strategic places so nothing would be lost by furniture. The ceiling was painted blue with big clouds all over it. It came out absolutely perfect and I love it.
