Dr Seuss Nursery
Before my son was born I spent an incredible amount of time preparing his nurses for his arrival. I’m not really sure why i did it as we were in a rental and I knew that we would not be there long term. Never the less, it was a way to nest and prepare for the little mans arrival. A Dr Seuss Nursery was the perfect magical place to bring hime home to.
Sure enough we ended up moving within a year of his birth and his nursery was painted over before he was ever old enough to truly enjoy it. I’ve been asked a few times about how I did the walls, so I thought I’d share. This is also a lovely way to remember such a special place, even if we were not there for long.
Unfortunately I can’t even find any of the finished pictures, which is amazing because I feel like I spent that entire year taking pictures! Anyway, the work in progress pictures will have to do!
Dr Seuss Nursery – Where to Shop
For the wall graphics, I used these decals from Etsy.
They were not cheap, but they looked amazing. They are made from matte vinyl that looks like paint once applied to the wall. I had several people ask me about how I painted the walls once they were applied.
For the bookshelf, I used these picture ledges from Ikea. They were super cost-effective and a good solution for such a small space.
I also made a themed magnet board for the room. I used this board from Ikea and glued some Dr Seuss fabric to it. Five years later, the board is still going strong in our new house.
I got my Dr Seuss Nursery fabric online here, but your local fabric shop might have something too.
