The Spiderman Trunk

I got a little more done this week
I refinished the trunk that sits at the bottom of the bed.

I was really tired of looking at this in the gray, red and blue Spiderman room

One of the reasons I dragged my feet with this project was a lack of direction.  I knew I wanted to paint something on the trunk that contributed to the theme of the room, but I didn't know what.  I came really close to overdoing it; I'm glad I settled on a more minimalist approach with the single spider.

Here's one last glimpse of the room before the final installment.  I'm working on some artwork for above the bed (and by working on, I mean I haven't even started it).

See you again soon!
Blessings,
Jamie
