Maia's Room Make Over - The Before - Part 1

Today I thought I would start sharing with you all my daughter Mais's room makeover! This post will focus on the room as it was before.

When I was pregnant with my son (over 8 years ago), I had painted this mural of Winnie the Pooh in this bedroom (at the time his nursery). Then when my daughter came along she moved in to the nursery which is now her room. Well she turns 6 next week and tells me all the time that she is no longer a baby. So I guess it was time that my beautiful work of art came down :(



For those of you that want to know how I did this on the walls, it was pretty simple actually. First I drew out a picture of what I wanted. Since I had a really tall wall I wanted it to look like Pooh was using all his friends help to get to the honey comb. I used pics from a coloring book and combined pictures of Eeyore, Tigger and Pooh so they were all stacked on each other.


I then took the picture I drew out and projected it on the wall. Using a pencil with light pressure I traced it all out. Then I painted everything with acrylic paints. 




Poor Eeyore, looks so sad!




Piglet and Roo, watching from a far! 
I miss seeing these cute characters in her room already... it's hard when you realize you don't have babies anymore! :(

Next post painting the room!
Happy crafting :)

  3. Aww... I'm so sad you painted over it! I guess I'll understand when my daughter gets older. She's just about to turn 3. It looked so great!
