A mural for my bedroom…



I have a small house … just 5 rooms and a big central hall. The rooms are large, however, with the exception of the smaller back room that was my office until a few weeks ago.

It was then that I decided to switch rooms and turn that office area in to my bedroom and I’m thrilled with my decision. It is cozy and warm and all it really needed was a bit of color to bring it alive. Not having a picture to fill the bill I decided to paint another mural.

Some of you may recall that I have a little business called “Snowflakes” (custom painted furniture) and, in the past I would also paint murals. I don’t do that commercially anymore since it is very hard on my back. BUT…I couldn’t resist one more challenge in my own house.

So now I can wake to a bright and cheerful “stained glass” window and, although I miss my Italian scene from my old bedroom I can go there whenever I want because that is my new office space !

Ah, Ginnie is multi talented! I love the mural Ginnie and you new Italian office looks great! It is nice to have a change now and then.
It's kind of funny, I left my bigger bedroom and moved into the smaller cozier one too! It's been a couple of years now and I do love it.
Love Di ♥

Very nicely done, Binny. Great to be able to just paint some brickword and a window where you wanted/needed one.
