Nothing Runs Like a Deere!

FINALLY it is done!  The long awaited "John Deere Room!" 
I couldn't bring myself to paint the walls a true John Deere green (a little too dark for a small room and because it would have meant getting rid of all of the cute red and blue wall art from his baby room that I am still in love with), so we went with a softer green that I hoped would be "John Deere" enough for Caleb, but still let us mix in the red and blue.  (Super pleased with how it turned out - When I get tired of the tan that's in every other room of the house I just go hang out in Caleb's room to put a little color into my day.)
Found this cute clip art online and had my good friend Katie (of www.vinyldesignsbykatie.blogspot.com) create it.  Caleb is in *L*O*V*E* with it!
Took down the baby pictures (sniff, sniff...), bought two $5 frames and matted two tractor pictures out of a John Deere calendar of my nephew's (thanks Wyatt man!) on white poster board that I had laying around for the new art work.


Found the John Deere road signs on sale at Hobby Lobby.

I framed a few black and white photos of Caleb and the tractors at the pumpkin patch that I took last fall.  (It's hard to see unless you enlarge it, but I love the picture in the middle of him sitting on the tractor.)  Opinion please:  should I paint those frames white?
John Deere bedding courtesy of Grandma Carol.  He saw this fleece from across the store at Joann's last fall and literally shrieked with excitement (then hugged onto the bolt of fabric and would not let go he loved it so much!)
And this little picture hanging inside the bedroom door is just for me, because I can't let my little man grow up too fast, right?

Wow! I am super impressed. I agree. It did turn out great.

It turned out great! I might paint the bed, but it is okay still. My little guy wants tractors for his wall too now.

Very cute room! You did a great job. I would either paint the frames white or make them look old.

I love the color of the room! I have a smaller room that I want to paint for my little boy that is due in 8 weeks and was hoping you could tell me what shade/brand of paint you used. Thanks!
