My husbands space has always been his upstairs office area.  It never had any personality at all, white walls, nothing hanging on them.  SO i re did it with his love of motorcycles.  The painting technique, I hope it shown in the pics, was real easy.  Base coat of grey, then brushed metallic silver glaze over it, then with Saran wrap gave it a dimensional look.  I love it, he loves it.  The window I could not figure out how to make a curtain for the entire thing, so I made your basic panel out of flame fabric and used gallery glass to do the design on top.  It isn't perfectly symmetrical, but i had no way to climb my peaked roof in the frigid winter to place a guide to follow. 

Hope the pics show as i have not posted with pics before.

Oh, it's just kittens.

I want to leave this world the way I came into it:  naked, screaming, and covered in someone else's blood.
