Choose a theme. Antique toys are a popular subject, so are the glass rag dolls, and Andy, and Noah’s Ark. Focus on a specific toy or toy type and start collecting. Use antique stores, eBay, Craigslist or other sources for vintage nursery items. Create your own wallpaper border on your computer. Download and print images that reflect your theme. Print them on plain copy paper and attach them to the wall using wallpaper paste. Cut each one with the size and dip in the wallpaper paste.

Select two or three solid colors and one or two fingerprints that correspond to your theme. One of the impressions must be large-scale, the other small, and both must complement each other. For example, one can be a band while the other is a floral. The use of these in bedding, curtains and even wall covering will unify your design. Create a mural that matches the theme. If you do not feel comfortable drawing your own, you can use a projector to enlarge the image on the wall. Draw with a pencil, and then fill it with acrylic paints. You can simplify the images using the GIMP or Photoshop.
