Okay, so I think I've figured it out, and am going to go get paint next saturday after I get paid (I blew my last check on baby clothes and gear LOL) Okay, so first, this is what I have to work with. The mess is courtesy of fiance, who decided last minute that he wanted to make this his temporary office. He's not thrilled about being booted out next week, but it's gotta happen! Sorry some of the pics are sideways; I tried to rotate them but for some reason my computer won't save them when I do that.
This is wall A:
and Wall D:
This is what I've figured out. Wall A is going to be the wall where we put the crib and the changing table or book case. That wall will be painted with stripes, blue and a lighter blue, like this but bolder:
Above the crib, I'm going to hang wall letters that are in the shape of music notes, light blue with dark blue letters. Above the changing table, I'm going to hang this organizer:
On walls B, C, and D, I'm going to paint this border:
The lighter blue will be the bottom color, and the darker blue will be the top. The notes will be the light blue, and underneath, following the curve of the border, we're going to paint the lyrics to "Beautiful Boy" with the dark blue.
On wall C:
It will have the border, but closer to baby's level, I am going to put this mirror:
on the right side of the mirror, I am going to paint this palm tree (taken off of the changing table organizer
and on the left side of the mirror, this elephant or this giraffe (can't decide) the giraffe would face the other way, towards the mirror
The mural would also include a sun that is on a lot of the items in the nursery, I just can't get a good picture of it.
Here is some of the other stuff I am going to use to bring all of this together:
The window valance; this musical note pattern is on most of the stuff:
and finally, the mobile:
If you got this far, thanks! What do you think??? I can't wait to get the paint and start it, then I can get some of the furniture in here (and kick fiance and his stereo system OUT LOL)
