Wall Art

One goal of mine since becoming a homeowner has always been to incorporate both art and scripture throughout our house.  Sometimes the scriptures are very obvious, while other times they are more subtle.  And, I am continually thinking of new ideas.  How awesome will it be for my kids to grow-up and remember scriptures they have seen all over our house?

My first house was a tiny 850 sq feet, but that was plenty big for just me.  Somehow I managed to paint a house that small with about 10 different colors.  (What was I thinking?)  But, it was so fun.  My orange little hallway was my most daring and most fun.

Of course, I remember my first time painting actual art onto my walls.  It was at our last house, and I was so scared that my hands kept shaking.  Now it’s just therapy, and a little more fun.  I no longer shake, but I do get a bit nervous.  So, without further ado, here it is…

Work in progress… (LOVE my frog tape!)

My cutie keeping me company while sewing at the top of the stairs…  All the kids wanted to help at some point.  I even gave Malachi a little chalkboard to color on while I chalked my design out on the wall.  This time the most they got to do was peel tape and keep me company.  I did most of the work while they were sleeping thanks to the crazy amounts of coffee I consumed, but usually I do projects during the day because I am just not a night owl.

The gray looks totally blue, which was not what I had expected.  But, it turned out just fine, I think.  And

  1. How lovely! Good job! Your house is a true representation of yourself; colorful and creative.
    I wish I could do all that I imagine, but it’s probably a good thing my man keeps me in check! (lol)

      • (ha, ha) How lovely that he encourages your endeavors.

        Being married to an artist, my guy has very particular tastes and desires in design. It’s not a complaint, mind you, he knows what he’s talking about; it’s just that I do not have the freedom to decorate or make purchases without him. Most everything is done by him or on his behalf. It works for us! 🙂
