Aparently in 2005 I was to nauseated to do anything =). I was getting ready to have a baby and gearing up to do my first ever murals for my daughters' rooms. Here I am starting on the first wall of the 'Cinderella Room' for Kate. That wall ended up being my favorite of all the walls in that room. I took the pictures directly from one of my girls' books and just switched things up a bit, especially on the last wall where I took elements from different pictures.
Sorry about the glare on this one. It isn't completed in this picture. The railing on this picture caused me quite a bit of greif. Partly due to the fact that I was new at murals. I still love that doorway and couch, however. Kate used to sit and stare up at it, trying to find a way through the door. (I had her changing table right beneath it).
Here is the second wall, a little more completed.
I promise I was the painting this. Emma only helped a little bit =).
Here is a (not-so-good) picture of the finished second wall. Amazing the effect you can get with paint and inexpensive netting from Wally-world.
A better look. And if you are wondering why there is an ottoman in the middle of the room: I promise it goes with a hidden rocking chair...and no, it doens't really match, but oh well.
There you have it. A complete picture. My husband keeps getting after me for not taking a final picture BEFORE I decorated. But I couldn't help myself. I am also a decorator and like to see the end result.
Well, there you have it. That was all I could muster for one year. Let's see what happens next, shall we?
