A Sunny Bedroom
Hello, thought I'd take a minute to share with you my kiddos bed room. We have a really, small space...so we decided to turn our fantastic living room... into their shared bed room!! When the kids were little, under three, we had a swing hanging in one of the walkthroughs in this room. Oh the memories of the wee ones falling asleep in a swing...in the house. So precious.
Having one of each kinda makes ya get creative when it comes to a shared space. Fortunately for us it works out, they love to sleep together, they get that from me :) I'm a snuggler.
Miss Ellie colored in some flowers at the base of out tree.
I used the Cricut Pumpkin carving cartridge and an overhead projector to stencil the tree on the wall. I repeated parts of the tree on one other wall too.
My kids school was super nice to let me borrow it.
My little OZ coloring in a fish in his pond.I still have to paint a guy fishing the pond. Thinking if I can get him to hold still long enough I will trace his silhouette. I think that would be pretty special. I free handed the fish and cat tails...that was easy enough for me. My artistic talent doesn't lend itself to drawing.
Another view of the room, and yes that's my vacum, it's always out and getting used....I am the crazy vacuum lady. I can't help it though...we live under some HUGE maple trees. When they are in full bloom it looks like a canopy of green above our little bungalow. Oh..random, sorry.
There are puffy clouds all over the room. It was such a blast to be able to do this for my kids. And, for the cost of the blue paint...$23.00, because I had the other paints already. I just used acrylic craft paints I have hanging around from other projects.
I love being able to create for my kids. I know that they will look back at this time with fondness. Living in grandpa and grandmas front yard with a decked out room, parents that love them and freedom to run out the front door and have an adventure. I'm pretty blessed.
Thanks for dropping in! Have any of you ever muraled walls? How'd you do it? I'd love to know.
