Maia's Room Make Over - Sneak Peak - Part 2

As you know we have been working on updating my daughter's room. She wasn't a "baby" anymore, so it was time for a room makeover!

Here is Maia, excited for what was about to happen to her room! Although after the first few hours she kept asking when it was all going to be done, lol!

And here is a  peak of the colors we chose, kinda reminds me of Neapolitan Ice cream, doesn't it?!
It was a lot of work covering up the permanent black marker, but it was actually easier than what I had anticipated. Thanks to the Kilz Clean start primer


Then to do the 3 colors was also challenging. The pink was the first color painted, then the brown. Once they were both dry then we painted the white stripe along the middle.  The funniest part was pulling off the tape, only a few spots needed touching up because of bleeding under the tape. Overall, I was happy with my first ever paint job!

Happy crafting "painting" everyone :)

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 into 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 honeycomb. 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!

I miss seeing these cute characters in her room already... it's hard when you realize you don't have babies anymore! :(

Happy crafting :)
