Progress on nursery - UPDATED in 1st post

Okay, since a couple of you asked for progress pics of the nursery, you twisted my arm (haha) and I will post some pics for you. I will probably just update this thread as I take new pictures Smile

Here are the baby room BEFORE pictures. The baby will obviously NOT have those hideous curtains Wink

Deciding on colors!

And AFTER, with the blue:

This will be the wall with the crib, and it will say "Oh, the places you'll go!"

Looking good!! Our sons new big boy room has the top half sky blue and the bottom half green (a little bit darker green than that) for the sky and grass also!

Wow! That room is going to be gorgeous! I love the creativity. (And admit I'm jealous you even have a baby room figured out at all!! I still don't know where/when I'll be moving.)

Thanks everyone!

The librarian at my school let me borrow an overhead projector. So I went online and printed out my favorite Seuss characters and traced them onto transparencies using a Sharpie.

Thanks everyone! I painted another set of truffula trees on the other side of the window today, so I am about done with the painting, except for a few touch ups. I am ordering a Dr. Seuss quote wall decal to put up later after we get the furniture Smile

Thank you SO much everyone! I really like how it turned out and I hope our baby girl is happy in there!

Jenn- if you ever come across and Seuss stuff in the area, let me know! I'm always on the lookout for new stuff Smile

Sugspop- I'm using an overhead projector to paint on the pictures. I'm not much of an artist either, but I like to try to be crafty when I can. But, I guess I have a steady hand to stay in the lines well, haha Wink
