trying to convince Steve....

6:30 AM

I am trying to convince Steve to let me paint similar designs on our playroom wall. Our playroom is brown with muted earth tone accents and I just think it needs something a little fun. Especially if we are going to be stuck indoors all day because Spring has decided to skip Utah this year.

These pictures are from simple shapes and pop wall, vinyl wall art companies and also very pretty, but the "painter" (if I can call myself that) in me wants to paint a tree on the wall. Nothing shocking or neon color, just a touch of 'different' and 'whimsy' in a very blah-boring room.

  2. Do it! That is so cute! And paint is easy to change if you ever get sick of it. That's the perk of owning your own place!

    So darling! She had an artist friend do the tree, but she also did an owl and to paint that, she found a picture on the internet she liked and then hooked her laptop up to a projector and put it up on the wall. It worked out really well. (Here's the whole post of the nursery if you want to see the owl...)
