Rain Forest Friends Nursery

by Danielle Sullivan
(Merchantville, NJ)

I love the Rainforest friends collection from Fisher Price. My sister in law gave me a swing and I was inspired by the colorful animals and thought the baby would love the whimsical rainforest characters as much as I did.

What brand and color of paint did you use?
Acrylic paint purchased from Joann Fabrics for the animals and Behr for the green valley and Walmart brand for the sage green walls.

If you added stripes, polka dots or other paint effects, tell us how you did it.
Nothing special just used pencil to free hand draw the animals no specific technique.

What brand of crib did you buy? Where from?
Lauren by Graco Convertable Crib in Expresso purchased from Babies R Us.

What brand of furniture did you choose? Where did you buy it?

How long did it take you? Was it easy, fun, difficult? What was your favorite part?
