Colorful Disney and Toy Story Inspired Bedroom & Play Room


For our son’s room, we wanted something more than just a nursery that he would immediately grow out of, so we filled it with toys and storage for him to use for years to come!

Design Inspiration

Both my husband and I are big Disney fans, so we looked towards Disney for inspiration, especially Toy Story! We also wanted a theme that allowed for friends and family to be able to contribute toys or decorations without having to worry about whether it "fit the theme".

Decorating Style

We chose primary colors to make the room colorful, bright, fun and stimulating.

Project Details

Most of the large furniture items in the room are from IKEA. We took a major shopping trip there to get all the items, including multiple bookcases, shelves, children’s toys and decorations and a comfortable chair for me! The crib is the DaVinci Ashbury from, and it can convert to a toddler bed and a full-sized hopefully that will last for a long time!

We decided on a light gray wall color (Benjamin Moore Gray Horse) and white furniture to be neutral against all the bright items in the room. We added lots of books and wooden toys, along with Toy Story and Disney toys.


There are several DIY projects by us in the room:

Hanging Barrel of Monkeys

Scrabble Letter Blocks over the crib

Growth Chart Ruler

Framed Letter T

Alphabet Wall

and we completely redid the closet for added space and storage.

Links to all of our shopping items and DIY project tutorials can be found on my blog at:

Favorite Items

We love all of our DIY projects so much, but our favorite is the hanging barrel of monkeys! They are just like the favorite children's toy, just much much bigger!


Just have fun and thinks of how the room will be used in the future too!

We didn’t! We ended up not even having room for one. We were going to use it as a laundry basket

Penny did you ever find a barrel for the monkeys I was hoping to find one?

Can you give me a link or idea to find on the barrel for the barrel of monkeys? I’m doing an Andy’s room themed Toy Story nursery
