My husband and I moved out of the attic into the bedroom downstairs that his sister was in before. It was this real ugly green olive kind of color so we decided to repaint it. Its our 'first place' together. Since I was a little girl I always dreamed of having a blue room with white clouds, and he was happy enough to do it for me! yay!

Here are some before pictures of the green. The ceiling is full white.

For the clouds we just kind of winged the shape. We used a blue bath crayon to mark the walls. It worked really well because it was easily wiped off with a damp towel. The clouds aren't all over the walls but mostly at the top. As for the ceiling, we have a ceiling fan and it would have been a pain to paint around it. So instead we just made the ceiling one big fluffy cloud!

Our friend Brian came over to help do the little parts.

And here is the finished product! The closet has a corner, so I painted a cloud on it and the closet doors. I thought it was a neat idea.

For our very large windows we also made that one big cloud too instead of painting around it.

My husbands family is greek, so we made the door blue and white- which is apparently a huge greek thing. I also wanted to put a heart somewhere in the room, (I love hearts) so I put it in the corner on the floor. Right now its covered by our bed. His mom made us some really nice blue curtains to match. She knows me too well, THEY ARE POKEMON!!!!!
And I think our Wrath of the Lich King box sits well in the sky. ^_^
