I am having a baby in a little less than 6 months, and it is my first.  I won't know if it's a boy or a girl for 5 more weeks.  I am wanting to do a bright colored nursery (I am not a pastel kind of girl), with some sort of shel silverstein theme.  I love his books!  His books are definitely not the most colorful out there, though.  It could be quite a challenge.

The walls are already a yellowish-orange color with white trim.  I'm not planning on painting any murals, because I'm not a great painter.  Anyway, I'm looking for ideas that any of you might have of crafty things that I could do to make the room perfect.  Any ideas are welcome.  I'm feeling a bit overwhelmed and lost.

The dreams of youth are the regrets of maturity.

I love the idea, and also Shel Silverstein stuff.  You could copy your favorites from the books and then color and frame them, or if you prefer to leave them black and white - you could try putting them in painted frames.

Another thing you could try is painting the designs on shelves or canvases.  Just get some tracing or transfer paper from a craft shop and you wouldn't have to worry about being artistic, lol.

You could also get a stencil, and stencil a nice quote from the book, or a whole poem if you're feeling up to it, on the wall.
It's not alot, but I hope it helped Smiley  Good luck, and congrats!

Just a thought...

Bright rooms are more stimulating to a baby/young child.  For Learning, stimulation is good, for rest and sleeping it may be your enemy.
