Serengeti Baby Room Mural

I've been meaning to show you a mural I worked on a while ago for my friend, Lynne.  She and her sister Leslie have a super awesome blog:  Sweet Midlife.  You should go check it out!

This mural was so much fun to do!!!  Here is the before and after
before

after!

I was humming the Lion King theme in my head the entire time I was painting it hehe.

And here is my favorite part of the room...

"What's so great about that?" you ask...
Cool, right?  There is tintable chalkboard paint and I had it made in the color "coffee" to match the rest of the room.

 This kid is going to have so much fun scribbling on the wall!

Here is one more look at the main wall where the crib is going to go

Let me know what you think!  Have you ever tried the tintable chalkboard paint?  I think I might use it somewhere in the new house... can't wait!

Blessings,
Jamie
