Disney's small world playroom

My favorites from Disney are the classics and Small World is definitely one of those!!  I wanted to do something fun in the playroom but it couldn't be too obnoxious like elmo (no offense, elmo lovers) because it can be seen from the family room.  I love the retro shapes and simple lines of the small world.  I also decided to keep the colors simple, again so it wouldn't be too much too look at.  Anyway, here it is:

I painted the mural and my mom made the glockenspiel out of a table topper from Home Depot and attached it to the wall to give it dimension.

The real small world doesn't have letters but I thought this was a little more educational.  Plus I hid my girls birthdays and initials in it.

This is a Mary Blair Lithograph my mom got at Disneyland and lucky for us decided it didn't work in her house.  :)

Here is the mosaic my mom made.  I posted about it before.

My mom made these when I was pregnant with my first.  They were in the nursery for both girls when they were babies.  She had this collection of figurines and put them in shadow boxes.  One of them has the lyrics to "It's a Small World"

Here you can see how it looks from the family room/den area.  I eventually want to put some curtains so I can have adult time if I want to.  Anyone know where I can get a good deal on 4 95" gold(ish) curtain panels? :)
