A Project I Started a Long Time Ago, Painting the Hallway
I wanted to share something, after losing our home in Nov 2, 99 which was a total lost. The new house was built in 2001 and the walls were painted an off white and it looked so blah... I decided to do something which did not go over with most living in my home, yes talking about my children and husband. They just thought it wrong that mom was drawing on the walls! I really felt the walls needed something sot I began painting a long whirling, looping some what ivy down my hallway, I used acrylics and had a blast I want to do more... But I am going to do some fast furious talking to convince the others to let me continue.I also started at the front door next to some really large windows that I thought I was giving more personality. I did not draw any designs I just started painting and loved every second of it. If my hubby would set me free on this I just would go wild I have a whole up stairs with a vaulted ceiling and more walls, my imagination is boiling over with what I could do up there! My Aunt was a great influence for this, she did her house with murals and they were wonderful I wish I taken pictures of the murals she completed. It's just amazing what one can do with a paint brush a little paint and a plain off white wall! I hope this inspires you to get your imagination going in your home.
