    You might just do some cool color combos (tans and browns) that would simulate mud coloring, or greys for rocks, and use the walls for the images (boggers, rigs, CK5 LOGO FTW!)

    Be sure to post up pics of the completed project!

    One option to check is material stores. Pre-made beddings will usually have the favorite themes like you mentioned, but often, if you look around at bulk material, they generally have a wider varity of themes. My wife makes a comforter for every baby born in her family, and can usually find something close to, or exactly like the theme the parents want.

    Theres been a few times that I got stuck shopping with here whne she was looking through material and I have seen all types of prints that are pretty cool .. but that you would never find already made in a bedding set.

    If you find the material, then it's just a matter of finding someone who can make bedspreads, pillow cases, curtains etc. Anyway, just an option. Good luck, hope you can find what you're after. :thumb:

    This will probably be one of the best ideas if you can't find an off-road themed set. Although you would think somewhere, sometime someone came up with Blazer sheets! You could also do real-tree (or regular camo) sheets and such, and make the rest of the room the theme part. I like the idea of the bogger tread pattern on the wall, and the maps. Sounds like there are lots of options for everything except the bedding. Do post up pics of the final project!

    Definitely a cool idea. Until you are the one that has to try and fit it through the door to get it into the room. :(

    you could do a bogger tread for the border pete (yunit) is a sticker guy and could hook you up

    as for the bed...just make it so it will unbolt. That is a great idea though..

    Shouldn't this thread be in the home decorating forum?

    By the way, not to hijack but I'm looking to plant some perennials in a low light area beside the garage, any suggestions? I'd like something with bright colours...:D
