The Safari Theme Nursery was my husband's idea. I was a little hesitant at first when he told me he wanted a day and night time theme. I didn't know how he was going to pull it off and make it work, but once he started making progress, the more beautiful it looked the more excited I got.
He has art school experience but I've never seen him do anything so grand. He hand-drew everything himself. He found some pics of the animals and trees from the internet, printed them, and took off.
With him working all the time it took 4 months to complete. I even had to push him to finish it because he was getting burned out from painting so much. We call the lion Elanore because he wanted it to be perfect and was afraid that he was going to ruin it. (Watch "Gone in 60 seconds" to know what this means). He did The lion last and everything turned out amazingly.
The stars are glow in the dark stars and the moon we found on Ebay.
We both chose what colors to use and decided to go with Color Place paint and applied the shading with a sea sponge. It cost quite a bit with there being so many different colors. And it required a lot of paint brushes, mainly because my husband left them laying around over night and the paint would end up drying.
Our furniture is from all over. The crib is from Target, the glider is from Babies R Us, and the dresser is from Wal-Mart. The bedding is from Babies R Us and some other things are from garage sales.
