The Character Nursery Room

The Character Nursery Room

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??

You did an amazing job on Truitt's room. He will experience a new adventure every day when he opens his eyes. Great closet idea. I like your choice of colors, they will bring about a calm spirit.

Out of This World!!!
by: Janice H.

Truitt is a very lucky little fellow to have you as a dad. You are awesome and the nursery is out of this world!!!

by: Candi

WHAT????!! No one tells me anything!! Not only did I not know you were this talented, I didn't even know you were expecting. So of course, I didn't know you were naming your son after Teresa's husband (Ha).

Andy, this is so beautiful! I had no idea you illustrated children's books! I did a mural for my granddaughter's room when she was born, but now I know it wasn't very good.
Thank you so much for sharing. I am blown away!
