This week the show us where you live Friday Nurseries/Children’s Rooms

Kelly's Show us where you live Friday
This is my son’s bedroom. I painted this room when I was 26 weeks pregnant. Now he is six years old. Due to the obvious reasons, I couldn’t stand on a ladder reaching to high places. My husband helped me out by paint two large stripes on the walls. 1st stripe is in beige, 2nd stripe is in blue. Then I started to paint all the clouds and characters, blending the water to the sand.

My husband built the roof out of 2x4 wood. I covered it in burlap and fishing net. Then I added some bugs and grass. I hung Frog out door lights underneath.

I covered the light with a small Eagle kite. I left the original light cover on the light so it wouldn't melt the kite.

The bed is a trundle bed with drawers under that. The train table I made out of 2x4 wood and I purchased the Thomas the tank engine Island adventure play board. I could not justify the high cost of those tables when I can make it for 25.oo. My son has been putting stickers on it for years making it his own.
This was just an out cove and my husband put shelves and desktop. It works for storage.

I hand painted from The Emperor’s New Grove.

I hand painted Peter Pan and all the characters.

I hand painted Lady and the Tramp.

  2. My lands! Do you dust all that? I am amazed by your creativity and the sheer volume of detail.

  4. Wow, you are very talented! It's so great that this room has grown with your son.

  5. You did an amazing job! All the handpainted characters are wonderful!
