Who doesn't need a tree on their living room wall?


Sorry that is a Christmas before shot but like my 6 year old says, "You get what you get and you don't throw a fit!"  Anyway....this post is about the wall with the big UGLY  lovely TV on it.  First off I painted the entire living room.  I needed a change from the light mint green, plus I was bored and needed a project.  The color I went with is Behr's Silver Lining, which seemed appropriate.
The color is a very lite blue gray. 
Now after painting I decided that the space between the front door and the TV needed alittle something.  I had a quart of oops Benny Moore paint in a light gray.  I thought I would just throw some black acrylic paint in there to darken it.  I couldn't find any in my stash.  But, I did have chalk board paint....its black.  I put in enough to make the color a dark grey.
Then I whipped out one of my birthday presents....what woman doesn't ask for Purdy paint brushes for her birthday? Thank you again Hubs.
The tree is free handed.  I figured if I don't like it then I could always paint over it, right?  It has a slight texture because of the chalk board paint added to the can.
I LOVE IT!  Hope you do to.


Going to get a cup of coffee and sit, relax and stare at my tree....

  3. Wow, I can't believe you freehanded that! I am crafty but painting anything other than furniture is not one of my talents. I love it, it turned out great!

  4. It turned out very nice, I think that might be on my next list for my sons room?I might put shelves on the branches. Nice colour scheme to.
