A while back I was totally inspired by Scott and Cheryl’s Paint by Number Wall mural and was determined to find a wall in my house to do the same. When I was 8 months pregnant and it was time to decorate our nursery I decided to move ahead with this plan. First I scoured the internet to find a paint by number image that I liked. I found the image that we ended up using on a paint by number website called New stories for Paint by Numbers. We weren’t looking for anything that screamed baby, instead wanting it to seem more like a view or window.
Next I borrowed a projector from work and we got to work tracing the image on the wall. Since the projector didn’t cover the entire wall we split the image up into 4 sections and did once quarter at a time.
Of course we had to put the numbers on so we would know what color to paint.
and have a color cheat sheet
Here are some pics of the progress. Wish I took more while we were painting the colors.
Here it is with furniture. Unfortunately the rest of the room isn’t quite finished, but I hope to soon.
The baby really seems to like looking at it while we feed him.
Extra bonus: I accomplished #46 on my life list. Paint a wall mural! Check!
