bedroom mural

Adrienne, I had a good laugh when I read your response to yesterday's blog, because "You'd be really good at painting murals in bathrooms" might be the funniest compliment I've ever received. Anyway, here's the mural that's in the girls' bedroom. It's along two of the walls, and the rest of the room is painted green & blue. I did it while pregnant with Ashton, so it's a little worse for wear... but still standing! Julie and I bought the white picket fence in the garden section at Home Depot -- it's a garden border, and we cut the spikes off that go into the ground. Then Julie had to pound it into the wall with these crazy bronze nails, because both of the walls were right on top of the exterior brick. And while she may have rheumatoid arthritis, she's a whole lot stronger than me. That white picket fence may never come down.
