I finally finished Elli's room the other day!  It has been a long process.  Poor girl had to wait on Mommy to get other projects out of the way while in the middle of painting her room!  I may still hang some kind of netting in front of her little bed-cave...but that will be a bonus for another day Smiley



BEFORE::::



AFTER:::::
Once I painted over the spots that Elli decided to help me with, here is what I ended up with!






The bed cave with Mommy's artwork:




This is Elli's contribution - I finally corralled her onto one spot Cheesy


3D embellishments:


So tell me - what do you think?!  Any additional ideas?

I absolutely LOVE this. I am one that enjoys so much to paint murals on walls. I have painted so many on my walls and then covered them over the years.

You have done an excellent job on these flowers. And, I love the 3D touch that you did. Smiley very well done.

I am a mother of two. Grandmother of one. Wife of over 20 years. I love to read, create things, draw, paint, camp and did I mention that I like to create things?
If at all possible, I like to repurpose things. I think it's the best way to go.

This is awesome! I wish my room looked like this, but I don't think my husband would go for it.  Grin

If I wist this will you come and do my room. I love this, and I'm old. But, am reverting to my childish self.

I have never seen a child's room that I liked more.

what a lucky little girl! I love that the flowers are so much taller than her. You have some fantastic art skills!

Maybe you could use one of the flowers for a growth chart!

Ha!  We probably live across the country from each other and that would make things a little more difficult! But, thank you Smiley
