This summer, I had been considering painting a tree on the wall as a means to decorate a baby's room. We've been hoping for a baby for years and I decided that I would do it when we had one. When Sierra approached me this summer and asked me to paint a tree on her wall, I decided that I did not have to wait until I had a baby. I could paint a tree on Abby's wall right now. So I did.
I found this picture online on pinterest, but the link did not work. I had no guides or instructions, just this picture to go off of.
I drew the tree on the wall with chalk and then over a period of a few days, painted the tree on the wall. I did the best that I knew how, but I was not pleased with how it looks up close.
|Bee had so much fun with the ladder. She used the tray at the top to store her most recent "collection."|
|I bought the vinyl online and then Sierra cut out all of the leaves and letters for me on her Cricut.|
|We also borrowed Tasha's cartridge and printed out some butterflies and some birds.|
The tree has been finished on her wall since June, the quilt was just recently finished.
I also drew a silhouette of Toothless and of a Pteranodon on her wall, but I haven't decided if I am going to paint them in or not. She is starting to grow out of her dinosaur phase, some days. At this rate, I can just wash away the chalk and draw a silhouette of her next phase in chalk. She seems content with that.
