Create a shooting star nursery for your little one, and make his every wish come true.

With boys' nursery ideas that are inspired by the night sky, you can design a soothing, peaceful space for your family's newest addition.

Step-by-step instructions

Step 1 — Prime the ceiling and walls

Apply Natura® zero-VOC primer on all surfaces to be painted and allow to dry.

Step 2 — Paint the ceiling

To enhance your shooting star nursery, paint the ceiling with wedgewood gray (HC-146) and allow to dry. Then use stencils to create stars of different sizes and paint them with mellow yellow (2020-50).

Step 3 — Paint the walls

Next, paint the walls with normandy (2129-40). Allow to dry and then paint the moldings, trims, and window elements with sugar cookie (2160-70). To complement your navy blue nursery, you can also paint the furniture this color.
