Not much progress has been made in Charlotte's room since the movers ditched her furniture in there over a month ago:
It isn't nearly as cozy as her room was in our house:
But all of that is about to change! A lovely new friend of mine is a painter. She paints absolutely stunning pieces such as these:
I have been helping her set up a website (with my extremely limited web design skills!) and in return, she is going to paint a mural in Charlotte's room! Here is a mural she painted in her daughters' room:
And here is another she painted in their play room after some of the wallpaper tore off:
She is also going to be painting a mural at The Bees Knees which I wrote about here.
I think that artists tend to do their best work when they are given freedom to do what they want, so I have basically given her free reign of Charlotte's room. I did show her the number cards that I was planning on putting up in the room and she decided to include them in her design.
She is thinking of doing a mid-wall border of clouds around the room and then mounting the cards within the border. She also talked about painting some more little birds sitting on top of the cards or flying away from the cards into the clouds. I just can't wait to see how it all turns out! She is coming over to start on Monday!
