I told you that I was re-doing Maia's room a bit for her birthday, right? Well, I painted a tree on one side of the room.
I saw a tree muralÂ in the West Elm furniture catalog -- used as a backdrop for tables -- and pretty much copied it straight off the page. I used pencil first, to sketch it on the wall, then wall paint and a small brush.
Now we just need to get her a bed!
We'll probably put it where the trike is in this picture so she can sleep under the tree canopy. We have glow-in-the-dark stars on the ceiling of our room and may need to put some in here as well for the finishing touch.
Why is that we parents get so excited about the silly things we do for our kids?
