That's Islander speak for, "what's going on?"
Yep, bet you didn't think you'd get a lesson today, huh?!
Well, I know I shared a tutorial yesterday but not today. I just want to show the artwork progress in the Big Girl room.
I found a fabulous canvas in Hobby Lobby. They were having a sale so I got it for $25 (that's 50% off)!!
It had all of the colors I wanted (shades of turquoise, pink and yellow) AND it was a fun print that could grow with Munchface or transition into another room (mom cave, helloooo!!).
One of the challenges in Munch's room is the angled ceilings; they really make a large room appear to have minimal wall space. I was bummed because I've been collecting pieces, frames and things I love. I even made my gift bag artwork because, well, we have a large room for all this stuff, right?
I hung a painting on either side of the closet.
Can you see those vaulted ceilings? I mean, they're a great architectural detail but they're also a pain in my picture-hanging hind parts.
In my original gift bag artwork post (here), I didn't get to show the larger piece in the frame. I am pleased with how it turned out:
Do you see her little dresser top? I straight-pinned (it's not glued) the pleated ribbon around the base of the lampshade to cover the ugly on/off switch (a sign my lamp shade was too short for the lamp). The lamp was a thrifty find ($2.90) and these cuties:
... just an integral tweet piece to the room's design. Without thinking, I've incorporated birds throughout the space. I just love the fat princess bird (it's a bank from TJMaxx and it only cost $3 on clearance!!); she makes my heart sing!
The photo above shows how her pink ceiling makes the pinks in the paintings really pop. I'm happy with how it's coming together and I hope you'll come back because I've got a fun little project to share!
