In A Pink Room

So from time to time I will paint murals or rooms for little kids. I'm working on one right now with sweet little whispy grasses and fun animals will make their addition soon.

I did a room about a year an a half ago and the request from the three year old was that the room be pink. I really liked how the room ended up and we were glad it would be one she'd stick with into her elementary years. Sadly the family just moved, though, and wanting the room to be preserved for posterity the following is a visual elegy for the pink room...

Just to explain... I used a gloss pink over the Satin pink walls which makes the swirls on the wall pop out if hit by the light just right. Head on, though, you can't tell they're there. There's a box window seat as well that I painted into a tree swing that hangs from a large branch painted on the wall under the tree canopy. Also, I love chalkboard paint... so the closet doors have a lemonade stands and an a-frame sign that the little girl could draw on. Every child will eventually draw on their walls... I just gave her a place to do so.

you really did a great job on this room. it is so sad that they moved, but i hear that the new family is keeping the tree. i really think you could have a business in all of this.

You must come to Valpo when we move and create Rylee Jean a room. I am in love!!! That room rocks. I want it for myself--but A would flip about the pink. What about something in teal and chocolate??

OH!!!! I do so LOVE a girly room. The color pink just makes me smile.... I agree with Kate- you need to start a business. Preferably a traveling one....that travels to Grand Rapids MI... Love you!
