Baby/fish room pics [UPDATED with a lot of pics]

Recently got done painting the walls in my baby room that will hold my marine tank for a while. Check it out:

I can see it now...

The mobile hanging over the crib with nemo and buddies and fish blankies. :P

Sorry, I either can't remember or am too lazy to go back over the past messages (actually, both), but is this the first?

If the first, remember rule of all baby rules. Sleep when they sleep. If not, they'll wear you out when they're not.

Good luck and congrats!!

Got fish painted on one wall:



There is much creative freedom going on when drawing the fish :P The bottom right shrimp is Jaques from Finding Nemo.

"Under the sea, under the sea. Everythings better down where its wetter, take it from me!" Looks great. My wife has dreams of an under water baby room, coming soon to a house near mine!

Those rooms are really amazing! You all are so very talented. I also read somewhere that the blue painted walls is soothing to a baby. Don't know how true that is but I can't imagine them being anything but happy in those rooms. Very nice indeed!

I wanted to paint my entire house like that...my wife wouldnt go for it. She said with my luck, I'd have a bit too much to drink one night and think I was drowning.

Hey you are a lucky guy!!!!!!!!! Because you are donne

I am cleaning out my baby room right now. I have about 12 weeks to whip it out.

At least i got to have a 80G tnak because I had to move my 27G out of the babyroom in order to be able to remove the popcorn Ceiling and 27G is to small for the Living Room (my wife had to agree).

I have a closet full of clothes, blankets, pacifiers, toys... My wife and I have been stockpiling stuff like crazy. I can probably make it through the first year only buying food and diapers :P

Once my baby goes mobile and start crawling around, I get to setup a new much larges marine tank in the living room and get rid of the 15g that the baby has

That's an awessome room! Any baby would be lucky to have that to look at daily!
