Winnie the Pooh with Stripes Nursery

Winnie the Pooh with Stripes Nursery

My husband and I decided on a Winnie The Pooh with Stripes Nursery because he loved Pooh when he was younger. I wanted to modernize the classic look a bit which is why I added vertical stripes on the other three walls.

We began by painting all four walls a pale yellow. The vertical stripes were done by first measuring and marking where each stripe would be. Then my husband used a light level on a tripod to place the tape in a straight line. We then painted the darker yellow. (*Tip: make sure you remove the tape before the paint dries or you may pull off some of the second color).




The mural was done by myself and my sister. My sister used a projector and traced the characters on the wall with a pencil. Then she and I painted.

The key to the mural is outlining the characters. I filled the character in first. Then I added a few drops of a darker paint (gray, black, etc.) to the original color to create a darker shade. I painted the edge with this color. This created a nice outline that isn't noticeable due to it being the same as the original color, just a darker shade.

The mural was much more work than I had anticipated. I would estimate that the mural took approximately 80 hours to complete.





Finally, I painted bees on the changing table, walls, and closet doors to tie the whole room together.

What a great job you guys did on the nursery. I'm planning on doing a Classic Pooh Theme and was wondering where you purchased the Pooh stencils and what type of paint you used to paint the characters?

You just gave me the best idea. My husband and I are expecting our first baby. I love Winnie the Pooh and all the characters. I especially love Eeyore. I have baby stuffed animals of Eeyore when I was growing up. You did great.

The nursery is lovely - I love the idea of combining the stripes with the mural. I did a Winnie the Pooh mural in my third baby's room. It took me ages too!

I love the mural. It looks more like stickers than paint because it is so good. Great job!
