The Big Sister of the brothers with the cabin bedroom, needed a paint job also. She likes yellow. And stripes. My first thought was this would be the EASY job, especially after the fireplace rocks and wood effect of the logs. I was WRONG! No taping was really involved with the boys room!! I hate taping. I now know I hate taping vertical measures stripes worstiser. I also found out that stripes are a bit like wallpaper, the measuring and layout need to be planned. Hopefully no one will measure the width of the last stripe. After the stripes we added a tree silhouette . My granddaughter has another bedspread with black and white swirls that really makes this look great! A few months later we added the stage and curtains, for a birthday gift. This has worked as a stage for performances. Also a runway for clothes designs. A great place to stack clutter of course. Recently we talked about adding some wall shelves and pillows for a reading corner.
The mother of my Grandsons, the brothers, had a great idea for decorating their room.
She wants it to look like the inside of a log cabin. She drew out the look of the fireplace she wanted and then asked ,ever so politely ,if I would do it for the boys.
Of course I could not refuse
She painted one wall moss green!
The job took me a couple of days. All were happy with it. I was pleasantly surprised at how it turned out! I usually am. The stockings go up each Christmas . We are still thinking of hanging a real mantel someday.
There was one problem. I forgot the window I was commissioned to paint. I did not even realize it for a few weeks. My daughter in law was too kind to mention it. So over a year later I finally painted the window I do like the window! From a distance the bear does not look like a hairy pig, like it does close up.
We are still in search of a faux bear skin rug for the room. Any one know where to get one?
