Little Major's "Crib"

Some of you have asked for pictures of the nursery since I've talked a little about our decorating scheme, so here ya go. It's definitely still a work in process, but it's starting to take shape. The furniture should arrive in the next few weeks, and then I guess we'll have to start really getting ready for this kid to show up.

Step one of our project was to paint one wall camo. We went back and forth between putting up wallpaper or painting it ourselves, and with such a creative hubby, how could we NOT paint it ourselves?

The Colonel also painted the Iwo Jima flag raising scene and then added a real flag for a little color. The crib will go under this painting.

The netting I got for Christmas is hanging from the ceiling in one corner, and there will be a couple of helicopters hanging from the ceiling, also.

And since The Colonel decided our actual theme is G.I. Joe, he had to add the G.I. Joe logo on another wall. The TV and the bookcase will not go there when the room is done. The TV will LEAVE the room, and the bookshelf will go somewhere else. I want to get a glider or a rocker for this corner of the room.

So, I'm pretty sure our nursery will be unique. I'm a bright colors kind of person, but I LOVE that The Colonel came up with this idea all on his own and he's having so much fun putting it together. And what better nursery for the son of a die hard United States Marine??

This is original! I love it. I don't think my hubby would do it. Maybe if I designed it, I am sure he would help. You are lucky. This gives him some ownership of the whole experience.

Wow! That is definately the most unique nersery I have ever seen.

But I have to ask- who's the TV for? :)

Jody - I THINK hubby is planning on watching the TV while he rocks the baby (he loves watching sports on mute), but I've told him that the TV is leaving. We'll see what happens.

For now, he watches it while he paints and does other stuff. It's our mobile TV. It moves all over the house to wherever hubby wants it. Yes, he's a little addicted to sports on TV.

That's a great nursery. Are you sure it's going to be a boy? If so, it will last until he's at least 10. If not, that's going to be one tough girl;o)

Hey, I'm a huge fan of the historical G.I. Joes. I just wish I had bought that Teddy Roosevelt G.I. Joe back when I first saw it. Teddy is my favorite president.
