When my girls moved into their new house - I gave them a hard time about not hanging stuff on the walls. Now I understand. I painted the master bedroom this spast summer and when I painted,we took down everything and filled in the holes. We wanted to start over. It has taken months to do anything at all.
Recently, when I was at Papertrix, I found this wonderful sheet of Graphic 45. I'm sorry to say I don't think you can get this paper any longer. I thought it was beautiful and instantly thought I'm going to frame this and hang it in the master bedroom!
I went to Michael's and all I could find was an inexpensive brownish-black plastic 12x12 frame. (It does have glass.) I didn't like the dark frame but knew I could fix it. The fist thing I did was to use my all time favorite paint - Golden Acrylics Titan Buff and started applying with a brush. Not covering completely with differing amounts of paint. I took some old t-shirt material and started rubing out the paint. After the buff dried I took some Golden Fluid Acrylic Burnt Sienna and painted some on here and there. Again, I rubbed with the cloth. Then it looked too red to me. I took some Golden Fluid Acrylic Titanium white and brushed over all here and there. Again rubbing with the cloth. Finally, I achieved the look I desired. It doesn't even look like a plastic frame any longer.Long before I ever painted the room, I bought this decal at Target. There was only one bird in the tree originally and I added a few more. The birds are all separate and you just stick them where you want - which is fun.
This is all we've done so far. Still lots of wall space but I haven't decided what I want to do. Plenty of time...
