Painting Dandelions on the Wall
It’s Friday!!! But, it’s not just any friday. No, no, no. This friday I’m headed to the beach with some other mom friends. No kids, no husbands, NO BOYS, just us 5 mommas! I can’t wait.
But, I promised to show you the graphic I painted on our bedroom wall. I know, I teased you as long as I could.
Pretty Handsome Boys #1 & #2, can you please pull back the curtains for the final reveal?
I painted the graphic in a few hours using a mixture of 1/3 of the wall color to 2/3 white ceiling paint. The tutorial is HERE. But, if you are hesitant to paint your own, check out Leen’s graphic dandelions HERE.
Because I tortured you with anticipation, I’ll give you a quick tour of our bedroom (a very quick tour because it is a very small bedroom).
Our pottery barn sleigh bed (gifted to us by my sister) flanked by new curtains and blinds that I showed you how to hang this week.
Thank goodness for two closets! Peeking into Pretty Handsome Boy #1’s room.
We painted a woodland mural in there.
A photo I took of the London Eye when Pretty Handsome Guy and I had a romantic getaway. I uploaded the file to CanvasPeople.com and gave it to my love for Christmas.
Sunprints made with my boys. So fun, so easy, so pretty!
And on the opposing wall, is the dandelion mural blowing seeds over the Craig’s List Dresser I refinished.
Ultimately, I want to add a wall quote over the dresser. But, Pretty Handsome Guy and I are still not agreeing on compiling quotes.
I used the dandelion tutorial and did a wall prop for my second graders to stand in front of. It looked like they were blowing them and making a Valentine Wish! Thanks. Wish I could post the picture
I love your paint color on your wall, I have been trying to find one similar for awhile, but cannot seem to find a good sample. Do you know what color this is?
Jessica, the paint was a custom mix, but it is a close match to Benjamin Moore’s (no joke) Brittany Blue ;-D
There was a pretty dandelion
with fluffy fluffy hair
that glistened in the sunlight
and in the summer air
soon that pretty dandelion
will grow old and grey
and sad to say
her charming hair
blow many miles away

Hey – I “borrowed” this idea for my hallway next to the front door.
I was looking for dandelion templates for the wall for ages and never found anything I liked so just decided to have a go myself.
Thanks for the inspiration!
What do you think?
