I am so excited about this post. This project has been in the works for such a long time it seems, so I'm happy to have it over with. Not to mention the mess cleaned up. Brielle was threatening to paint it for me if I didn't get it done. Honestly, I can't believe that I painted this much for a little play room, but the girls absolutely love it, so I'm glad that I did. The girls begged for a fairy room, ( what's with the themed rooms, and what happens when they grow out of it?) I thought easy enough. Maybe a couple fairy pictures, some baskets...I definitely wasn't planning on a project this big, but it just morphed into it and took on a life of it's own. I found the little fairy wall stickers on eBay of all places and that started the whole mess. The oak tree scene was kinda copied out of one of our favorite books. FYI I had no idea how to paint a tree, it was a little scary there for a while, I'm still not completely happy with it, but not willing enough to fix it right away. I'm sure it's good enough for who's using it. Maybe it's just me, but I'm never happy with my own work. Don't ever be a perfectionist....
Anyways, the bookcases and toy chest also had to be painted white, they used to be black and brown. Painting about ten zillion coats was not the funnest job! Also there is a little canopy in front of the window that's kind of hard to see. Just perfect for a little reading nook.
As I'm sure you guessed, Kyrie wanted to help me paint the scenes the entire time, which I let her a little bit. She painted the entire hollow on the tree, it was also her idea, so I'll give her 100% credit. The girls put all the stickers on the walls by themselves, in fact they about had heart attack when it was finally time to put them up. I was afraid that they would rip them, but they did
drawing, infact she told me today that she likes drawing more than watching TV. hooray! I hope it stays that way.
