A room makeover has been a long time coming!
We knew that Sweet baby K would be our last baby! On random days...and they are getting fewer! We muse about trying once more for a boy...those days are few! Because she was our last little one we decided to have some fun with my pregnancy and we did not know her gender until birth (well I knew but played along into the hope that she would be a he) On the off chance we would welcome home a little boy I decorated the nursery in a unisex theme. Now that I know my little girl and know her bright little personality I have been cursing my brown and green choice. I looked and pondered forever as to how I would change it...
I had been wanting a tree of some kind but could not find one I liked! My friend was within hours of cutting a vinyl tree for me on her silhouette when I found this beautiful baby girl room at" Unique baby gear ideas " I loved it so much that I started painting that afternoon!
A funny thing...
I set to work by first priming my chocolate brown walls with a white latex paint. Then...painted it back to the original lavender color my husband had painted the room with. He found this slightly amusing!
I started my tree by free handing the trunk and branches.
Then went back through to clean it up...
Instead of painting flowers I used double sided scrap book paper to create these cuties! A button center!
To spare myself extra work and to save some of my original effort I used the green strips to create a colorful tiled look.
I just need to finish touching up the branches! I am so excited!
