When I started my business, Off The Wall Murals, almost 15 years ago, the majority of my work was done in children's rooms. There were of course the occasional faux finishing jobs. I much prefer the kids rooms! Faux finishing is more tedious than creative and if I'm going to get covered in paint, I'd prefer it be over a creative endeavor.
A few years ago things changed and I was rarely doing kids rooms. I was still doing some faux finishing but the majority of my work had switched to glazing kitchen cabinets. I love the outcome, but once again it is more of a tedious job than a creative one.
I was talking to someone a couple of weeks ago after I got yet another call about glazing cabinets, and I told them, "all I want is to do a kids room!"
Well, ask and you shall receive!!!
Michelle Enigenberg of Interior Designs by ME called me about doing some work in a little girl's room that she was designing. When we met and talked about her vision for the room, I was giddy!
The little girl's name is Ali. She is a precious 3 year old. I had so much fun painting for her today.
The room is still waiting for window treatments and a few other things but here is the result of my fun day...
Three walls in the room are painted a light pink.
The wall behind the bed is a darker pink. On the darker pink wall, I painted an A for Ali.
I added a flower that matches the bedding behind the A.
Michelle added a little bling to the A and the flower once it was dry.
On one of the lighter pink walls, I added 5 flowers that go with the bedding.
One of the flowers is over 6 feet tall!
There is going to be a chair that will be upholstered in a green leopard print. I painted some of the leaves to match the leopard print fabric. Here you can see the fabric swatch and some of my leaves...
I added one more flower to another wall...
There is nothing better than loving what you do and having a happy customer!
I think her expression says it all...
I will post more pictures when the room is completed.
