Boys' Room: The Design

So, we're having another baby and we have a 3 bedroom house....guess who gets to share a room?  They are actually very excited about it.  Plans are for bunk beds  but unbunked for now, a wider dresser to accommodate both sets of clothes and my reading chair.  We don't allow toys in the bedrooms, however, I'm taking this opportunity to finally do something wonderful to their room!  I decided on a "My Favorite Things" theme, have done a bit of research on the 'P' and finally have some sketches.  Now, just to get the sketches up on the wall and convince some wonderful friends to come and help paint.  The rooms are already a nice sky blue color, so we won't have to do a background, just to 'scenes'.  So excited!!!  Here are the sketches I've come up with.

The Ocean: the ship will actually be an iron ship that my great uncle welded for my grandparents.  The open area is the closet door.

Ocean and Space:  The ocean wall runs into the space wall.  Complete with rocket and sandcastle.  at the bottom right there is the end of a train track that runs into the next wall.

Jungles and Trains: here is the train track complete with train and a jungle in the back.  We already have some of those stick-up jungle animals that the boys can place around the jungle scene.

Dinosaurs: the train track from the joining wall ends in the hills here where the dinosaurs are!  Off the right is where the ocean joins...but not a very good transition other than the door and a sun.

Hopefully we can pull this off and have some great pictures to put up later!
