24-hour project


I have been trying for the last year or two to put some finishing touches in Blake's room and this is one of them. Actually, I was going to put a shelf above his bed originally, but plans changed. The shelf just seemed like it stuck out too far (and plus, I had images of it falling on top of him while he was sleeping...I know I am a total worry-wart!) So, I used a little left-over paint, a leveler, a projector and some stain to create this free art above his bed! He is excited about it and I am just glad one more area is complete. Next? I am on the hunt for a horizontal striped fabric to recover his lampshade in... Ah, too many projects, too little time.

Until I read that you had actually painted it on the wall, I thought it was a piece of painted wood. Seriously, is there anything you don't do? A projector, really?! Did you just have one of those lying around?
It looks great!

Looks AWESOME! I wish we lived closer to each other and could do crafts together. I like the lego jar too!

Hey Amber,
Nice to hear from you. Your kids looks so big! I guess its been about 2years. If you go to my blog go to Wedding Photography in My Favs and it will connect you to our site. It was so fun to see all your pics and talents.

I want one! I love it, but my excitement faded when I found out it wasn't vinyl and I would have to paint it myself to have it. I also love the quilt and pillow, which I'm guessing you made as well. Keep the decorating pics coming!

I have GOT to come visit your house when I come to Utah next. I LOVE how you decorate, and since I have no authentic creativity of my own (all of my cools thing/ideas are stolen from things I've seen), I need to see your house to get ideas for mine. Keep posting your beautiful pictures of your home's interior (and exterior for that matter).
