Unique Jungle Nursery

Jungle themes are very popular for baby nurseries, but this one is really unique. I painted it for my sister-in-law who is due with her first little boy in November.

She wanted animal silhouettes against a very striking blue wall color. They turned out great!

Choosing highly recognizable positions of the animals really helped give a feel of simplicity and a look that the child will not outgrow.

I also painted this bin to go with the room & filled it with baby goodies. It makes a great accent piece!

So, think about this option when you are considering a jungle themed room! This style would look great in a sun room or basement as well.

Now, all we need is the baby!


  1. LOVE THIS! We want to do the same thing, but our artistic abilities are limited. Any tips? Dumb question...did you paint the solid color all over the walls and THEN the white on top? Or did you outline the shapes and paint around them?

  2. Sorry- totally missed this comment. The walls were painted a solid color first. Then I came in and painted the silhouettes on top (roughly 3 coats of white).
