**EDITED 11/20/07**  New apartment - check 'er out! http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=206934.msg2211441#msg2211441

Here is my loverly apartment, which I literally painted the day I moved in.  I can't stand white walls, but I CAN stand cherry blossoms and aqua.  So there.  I also have pics of my bedroom... I love my apartment.  So so so much.

Living room close up of my ultimate flea-market find lamp (BRAND SPANKIN' NEW!) and my wall.


Full living room shot 1 with my favorite art piece hangin' out above the couch.


Other side of the living room


Dining room walls with my dumpster rescue windows, featuring vintage travel posters Wink



My very PINK bedroom with old ladiness all around.  I like rodeos, western shirts, and pinups.  And '57 Chevy's.  And I collect those hoaky state plates and chenille bedspreads... wa-LAH!





I've added more stuff since I took these pics, so maybe someday... more posting.  Thanks for lookin'.  Smiley

Your Cherry Blossoms are completely cool.  What a great landlord you must have to let  you do that!

I absolutely love your cherry blossoms!  Are they completely free-handed or did you a projector, or something?  Oh, and the color choice is amazing!

Yes, just freehand.  There is nothing more relaxing than painting freeform tree branches... seriously.  No pressure... and the blossoms are 5 simple brushstrokes.  Much more simple than it looks!  More of a TIME consuming process  - it took me two days to finish the walls.

The cherry bloosom trees are beautiful. It really was time worth spent doing them.
