Fire Station Nursery

Fire Station Nursery

My husband and I love dogs and wanted to incorporate them into a nursery/kids room. We saw some wallpaper with a fire house dalmation and thought that would make a great nursery. We wanted a room that would function as a nursery, but that our baby boy could grow into and use as a toddler.

We found the crib bedding on EBAY and started looking at online pictures to gather ideas for some murals. I sketched my ideas out on paper and scanned them into the computer.

We painted the room a base color of yellow. My husband then brought home a projector from work and projected the images onto the wall. This allowed us to make the images the exact sizes we wanted them on the wall. I then traced them on the wall with pencil and filled them in with paint.

My husband thought it would be neat to have a fireman's pole in our fire station nursery. We spray painted a pvc pipe in a metallic finish and attached it to the wall. Then we took a pair of childrens' fireman rain boots and attached them to the ceiling in order to give the impression of someone sliding down the pole.

All the furniture in the room was inherited. The crib was my crib, the dresser and bookcases were a part of my husband's childhood bedroom set, and the rocker belonged to my husband's grandmother and is over 100 years old. Amazingly they all are in fantastic shape and they all match!

All the paint on the walls is Behr. The base color is "banana split". I then bought Home Depot's $3 paint samples in "mouse ears", "april blush", "mickey's pants", "hundred acre sky", "hundred acre raindrops", and just pure white to fill in the murals. The murals cost us less than $25.

We really enjoyed decorating and painting the nursery and love being able say that we did it all ourselves! I honestly think that this project could easily be done by anyone and is relatively inexpensive. That was very important to us because of all the other costs we have with the baby.
