I was sad when we moved from our house because I had just spent so much time redoing our bedroom. I loved the birch tree mural that I had painted. I was also sad because I knew the Loft style apartment that we were moving to wouldn’t let me paint the walls. Bummer. I had to figure out someway to add something special to the room with such tall ceilings. I think our ceilings are around 14ft. We live in an old factory building where they made the union army uniforms for the Civil War. Cool huh? I was pretty sure I wanted to attach real tree branches to the wall. My mom called me one day after her and my Dad came in from a walk to tell me she found the perfect trees. She took a special trip out one day to visit with all the trees sticking out the back of her car. She was right, they were PERFECT! I still wish I could paint the walls but we did the best with what we could do. It’s hard decorating with such tall ceilings.
At the moment Rowan doesn’t have her own room. We never made her a nursery because we knew she was just going to sleep in our room for awhile anyways. We have a room that is going to be her nursery, I just could never decide how I wanted to decorate it. I am still working on it. We are getting to that time though that we are ready for her to have her own room. For now she sleeps in her vintage pram in our room. We also brought her change table and added it to the bump out where the window is. It fits perfect in there. It is very convenient for early morning changes.
Most of the artwork in our room is by Kev or I. He took the photo above Rowan’s Pram and I painted the Ship and Mermaid painting as well as the Deer painting on the shelf. I also made Bruin Cat. haha. I love that thing. I found an old vintage bruin patch at the good will one time and decided it needed to be attached to a cat. I also made the skeleton/teeth etching, as well as the screen printed “Don’t be an art Killer.”
