Trees & Hooties & Birdies oh my!

As promised, pics of the boys room and Heart’s new baby girl’s room. All wall art, (from drawn stencils) and pillows made by moi. Kitschy doo-dads are treasured foundlings during my thrift store escapades, of which there are many. It’s an addiction. Heart and I have been sistah’s for a long time now. I call her Heart because her last name is Harte and she has wee purple heart tat on her tummy. This is her and I back in the day.

This be art in progress for baby Heart’s room…

Sample tubs of house paint (a small bit goes a long way); were used for a project such as this, along with bristol board, painters tape and stencil brushes. Et voila!

The project spanned into a three day sleepover, because we were too busy playing with/caring for, these cuties:

I have no process shots of my boy’s room, as I was finishing it into the wee hours the day I went into labour! The last thing I was thinking of was to take pictures. I was a woman on a mission. Or possessed (to finish), as the BSM puts it. *smirk*

      Thanks CK! I humbly think they are pretty grand if I do say so myself. Murals are not as hard as you think…just gotta do it. If you need some pointers or How To’s to get the project rolling, e-mail me, I’d be happy to oblige!
