I’m not a wealthy woman and so my daughter’s nursery isn’t exactly the like the one in Hook, which had been my plan since I first saw it back in the early 90’s. if you’re young enough not to have seen it It’s a MUST. It’s AWESOME, and the nursery in it is so cozy and inspired.
Well fast-forward thirty years and I’m finally a mommy and while I’m not rolling in cash I’ve got a bit of an imagination. I decided to blend the Tardis from Dr. Who and Van Gogh’s Starry Night (“They goes together like peas and car-rots”, as Forest Gump would say).
The Tardis was made from a tri-fold board and pizza boxes. The light is made of cardboard, parchment paper and fairy lights.

The Starry Night background was made of that brown, sturdy packing paper (the brown kind on a roll - I think it’s called craft paper), tissue paper (light blue, medium blue, yellow and cream) and craft paint.
My daughter may turn out to be the most analytical person I know, preferring black and white paintings by M.C. Escher and the periodic table of elements on her wall, but if she’s anything like her mama this colorful vision above her bed will surely bring her incredible dreams every night.
