Matteo's magical "Where the Wild Things Are"-themed nursery

This Where the Wild Things Are-themed nursery is definitely PIMPED OUT — Matteo is one hella lucky baby. I've never fallen so hard and fast for a themed nursery in my life! Everything from the hand-painted walls (just WAIT until you see the detail!) to the absolutely adorable little touches are perfect.

The quilt draped over the crib was made by a family friend, and has the entire book laid out as the squares. WHAAAAT.

The frames came from Michael's and the couple painted them — she copied the leaf pages from the beginning and end of the book and decoupaged them onto the edges. Genius!

The blanket was a gift from a long-lost college friend who had no idea of the theme of the nursery and it just happened to match the Wild Thing's "sweater" perfectly!

There wasn't a lot of space for books, so they purchased three milk-crates from Michael's ($12 each) and stained them with a leftover wood stain. A hammer and a few nails, some overflow toys, and voila!

A children's librarian friend designed the mural, and friends helped bring it to fruition on the walls of Moishe's room.


The room is closet-less, so they substituted a huge frame from an Ikea mirror that broke in a previous move, painted it yellow, and wove ribbon to make a unique place to hang sweaters, jackets, hats, and other fun stuff.

See the moon on the wall? This is my favorite night-light ever. Don't be surprised if you see it again soon.
