I am expecting a new baby and a new home in march ( or at least that is what the builder keeps telling me:confused3). I had initially wanted a nursery for the baby to be its own wdw. I was going to paint murals of rides around the room. Then decided maybe go with a movie theater design and put up posters and big star lamps from disney all-star resorts. BUT now have trying to register i decided on most of my decor will be rainforest. So here is my question to you: Can you tie disney into the rainforest??

I havent found out the gender yet of the baby, so I was thinking maybe sticking with the posters and for a boy go with attraction posters from adventureland.

Now, a girl on other hand is a little harder. Maybe, do the new pixies as a theme? Not real sure....please give me some ideas!!!!:yay:

Have you thought about turning it into Animal Kingdom?
All those movies - bug's life, Lion Kings, Dinosaur...Safari Mickey, Minnie, Goofy, Pluto, Donald.
If you lived closer, I'd come by and help you do the walls.

Disney's Jungle Book comes to mind. You could do Baloo and Mowgli on the walls.

Here is a start. DisneyShopping.com has a Jungle Book lamp.

Rainforest/jungle theme is a very cute idea! Especially since Fisher Price has a whole line of jungle/rainforest themed items.

I also just found a Jungle Book toy box. A baby might not need it for toys, but it would make cute storage for extra blankets until they grow into the toy stage. The jungle theme will also transition well into a toddlers room.

I don't think it would be to boyish. If it is a girl add some tropical flowers to the paintings etc. and accent the room with bright pinks and oranges. I think the Jungle Book theme could work for either a boy or girl all depending on the accessories.:thumbsup2

I did Classic Pooh because it could be used for either. Since it was a boy we stuck with blues and greens. If it had been a girl we would have added in pinks! And this way if we decide to have another we can just change out the green for pink if we happen to get a girl. And don't forget those ultrasound can be wrong... We had some friends that were supposed to be having a girl and did the room all up in pink and purple and guess what it came out a he... They had to completely redo the room. This way you could just change a few accessories...

Thoes are great deals! Got to love the outlets!

What kind of stamp are you looking for? I did a google search for dumbo stamp and all I came up with is the dumbo postage stamp... :confused3

I haven't seen a wall/paint type stamp of dumbo (like the Mickey ones sold at Home Depot). You could make a stencil. Just find a drawing of Dumbo you like and cut it out of heavy plastic. Then use a sponge to pounce the image on the wall.

When I did my little ones nursery I took a picture of the comforter and projected it up on the wall and traced/painted it.
Here is how it turned out.
