The Character Nursery Room
by Andy Nguyen
The Character Nursery Room
I got the idea for Truitt's Character Nursery Room from the exciting "Another Sommer-Time Story" character-building books. They teach positive and character building traits. I started working on the bookcase first. Then I painted a sky with clouds on the ceiling. I painted the walls yellow and then added characters from the books.
The cloud picture on the ceiling has about 140 small and large glow in the dark stars on it.
I built the bookcase and stained it a cherrywood color. It has 1.5 inch flexi-glass in the front to hold in the books. I screwed the frame to the wall. The two shelves in the corners are from IKEA, and the hat stand was from a garage sale.
I got the crib from a garage sale then found the dresser and changing table on Craigslist. I painted all three items a neutral color. We will repaint them with new colors when we have our second child. We haven't had a baby shower yet . It is scheduled for September 19th, so we don't have any crib bedding or accessories yet.
The clock you see on the wall was taken apart so that I could put Mr. Sunshine in it and paint the frame.
The final touch was outfitting the closet. I heard that some kids are scared of the closet, so I made it more pleasant by stapling posters to the closet wall. I got them free from a paper company.
It took me four months to finish the character nursery.
Thank you for letting me show off my baby room. My wife said it was my room to do with as I wished, and this is what I came up with! Truitt will be born in about two more months, October 25th to be exact, or maybe not exact??
