For a few weeks, I had been thinking of doing something in our bedroom, like painting a tree silhouette on our wall. While searching Google for images, I found a lot of neat decals for sprucing up our room. They gave me the inspiration for the design and Tuesday I picked up a quart of paint that was one shade lighter than our wall color. I free-handed this design yesterday and love the way it looks! (The first paint stroke was nerve wracking, but it was fun after that!) It looks really nice in natural light, but the flash makes it looks a bit brighter than the design truly is.
The point of no return, a few of the branches started.
The (mostly) finished product. I decided to add two more lower branches later today to make the tree more balanced. After that, I will add more birds flying in to the tree, and also paint some perched along the tops of our closet molding and window. Later this week, I will do another similar tree on Jay’s side of the bed.
