My favorite song (and movie) of all time is Yellow Submarine by The Beatles!
I love the song so much that we devoted an entire room in our new house to it!  The room serves as our spare bedroom right now, but when we have a little one, it will be their nursery.  What a fun room for a kid, right?




Here is the quilt I made  The different fabrics symbolize the different "Seas" in the movie; Sea of Time, Sea of Science, Sea of Holes, Sea of Nothing, Sea of Monsters & Sea of Green.


Here you can see the curtains I made using IKEA fabric, and the lovely tin posters my hubby gave to me.


This is the mobile that I made out of felt.


We got this shelving unit from IKEA, and we keep our vinyl collection, movies and CDs on it.  Hubby got me the awesome tin set (top right) from an antique shop.


These are my handmade wooden Submarines that I made out of wood and my lovely Dremel tool.


Left to right you see...Tin "Help" puzzle box, Collectible figurines, tin "All You Need Is Love" tin containers with the Submarines I made, and the Sub Action figure set.


On this shelf is my vintage "Peace" Goblet, lava lamp, framed Beatles (from my sister), vintage "LOVE" embroidery, and Peter Max "LOVE" puzzle.


This little cupboard I painted and added some YS trading cards to personalize it.


I can't commit to putting anything up on my walls, I don't know what's wrong with me!  Here is a lovely poster I have, and a tin YS Poster, along with my AWESOME YS Lava Lamp!

This room took A LOT of work, we love it, and I hope you like it as well!
I appreciate comments, and of course your vote!
Thanks for looking

Oh man, my husband and I have talked about having a Yellow Submarine nursery, ever since we went to see Love at the Mirage in Vegas.  We're adopting, and we are going to talk about your beautiful nursery in our adoption blog, if thats okay!  We're completely inspired by how creative and bright it is.  Good job!

Thanks everyone for all of your nice comments!  I really love the room myself, and wish it was my room instead of our guest bedroom/hope to be soon nursery!  Guests enjoy it, though.  I really put a lot of work and thought into every part of it (even where to hang pictures, I just can't do it!)  I even have WAY more stuff, I just don't want to clutter the room! 

Oh man, my husband and I have talked about having a Yellow Submarine nursery, ever since we went to see Love at the Mirage in Vegas.  We're adopting, and we are going to talk about your beautiful nursery in our adoption blog, if thats okay!  We're completely inspired by how creative and bright it is.  Good job!

MrsNickeldime, sure that would be fine!  Can I have a link to your blog?  Thanks!

Your room is bright and cheerful; I'd say keep it that way even when you do change it for a nursery. Just add a crib and.....whatever else you need and keep the theme! Great job! My daughter would love this room too.

Please don't hurt me, but generally I'm not a fan of the Beatles... I just don't seek out their music. However I love this room. AND AND AND it features an actual favourite band of mine Smashing Pumpkins!! The boxset! I love that box set.  As a matter of fact if I had entered this challenge I would have crafted "Medellia of the Gray Skies"

Once again, awesome job!!  You made me like the song in a way!
