I am a craft and art enthusiast. So when I was asked to complete a wall art installation in a craft room, I said, “Yes please!” I love knowing other crafty people are out there and are carving out spaces in their homes to indulge in such a fun hobby. These spaces thrive on color, whimsy, and inspiration. For this client, nature is the number one inspiration, and thus a tree mural was designed. This is the space at the start:
It is a basement in the process of being finished. In essence, a perfect time for painting on the wall. The client wanted to stick with the colors of nature: browns and greens, but with a pop of brightness, yellow!
First step, the tree, lightly sketched in pencil and then brushed on using an angle brush to bring dimension and movement.
The next step, adding the leaves. I think we are all tired of the lingering winter we have had, and what better way to anticipate spring than to help your own tree leaf out!
The final touch, birds!
As you can see, since the project was started, the room around it continues to be finished. Next up for this room? A faux bird house applied on the wall to add dimension, a magnetic inspiration board covered in the green fabric, frames to display artwork, and tons of organizing! The client stated, “This is my favorite room now! I love to sit under my tree and read a book, or plan my next project.” I hope this tempts you to think about a room in your house that needs a little extra something to turn it into your favorite room to spend time in.
