sneak peak

So I finally dared to painted a tree in the nursery, I've been planning to do it for a while. I didn't really want to tell Brad I was doing it the other night because he is very skeptical when I begin things and has a hard time envisioning them. I kinda like that he always wants to be involved in everything, but it comes hand in hand with strong opinions that tend not to align w/ mine...
Half way through the project I made the mistake of asking for his opinion. First, he was surprised I was painting on the wall (I don't blame him there). He could only see a dead branch and thought I should have had him tape things and make stencils ("see how this leaf is bigger than all the others, that will always bug me")  I tried to explain that it was a hand-painted tree... I was going for a more organic look and a project I could complete on my own in a couple of hours. (if I wanted a "perfect" tree I could just buy an expensive wall decal) I became less confident that the tree would turn out good and that he (and I) would like it. I still went back to doing it my way and luckily it turned out just how I wanted it!
In the end, he liked it too, but now that he knows we're painting on the nursery walls he wants to get his own wall to paint on. I guess it's only fair, but I'm still not sure how I feel about it because I have been thinking about the nursery and planning it for months... I kinda want to just do it all my way. I told him if he comes up w/ a good enough idea we'll do it- but I have the right to veto anything I think is weird. Fair enough, right?

P.S. I'm about to start the crib bedding so the cribs won't be so naked...
