Our college son moved into his new home. This left me with an empty bedroom. Now I could do the traditional guest bedroom, but why? The main guest in my home are my GRANDS! This Grand Mommy also needed some Paint Therapy, so throw Tradition down the drain and give me a grandchildren's room.
The door opens to Cat in the Hat. I used my trusted projector and sketched him on the wall. He was then outlined with a paint pen and a paint brush was used for the red. My wonderful...has more talent in his pinky-finger-husband, added the final accent strokes. He took what I had done and added the icing with his black hash marks.
As you turn into the room I had to add Thing One and Thing Two in anticipation of our twin grandsons due in June. This one is totally my work...it didn't need the artist hand.
I needed to cover up where the two colors came together on a curve. Solution, a tree and Lorax.
I had to add Pink...in anticipation of a future granddaughter at some time.
The side wall has this quote. My Grands will learn their Grand Mommy loves literature, quotes and the power of the written word. They will hear who Grand Mommy knows will be with them as they climb the mountains of life. He is the one who will guide them.
The twin bed will be placed under this quote. A Cat in the Hat comforter has been ordered.
The side wall next to the quote has two windows. I will be making a valance across both windows. The wood valance will be painted red and white strips. I will post when finished. The final wall is Horton. He is above the baby bed. This is for the small Grands. Once again the artist came to the rescue and added his touch. Grand Daddy has his strokes on this wall also.
The paint therapy allowed Grand Mommy to remember what life is all about and let go of those nuisances of life that want to steal our joy.
Saturday night two guest will be spending their first night in the new guest room.
Our three grands and the three due this summer have a special place! I have a little bounce in my step after my paint therapy.
