so remember yesterday when i said i had made a decision about the wall decal? well. i changed my mind. (shocker!) and i’m so happy i did.

while a couple of you suggested i just paint the image on the wall it wasn’t until i received a message on facebook from a friend that give me the inspiration and courage to give it a shot.

she said, “Michael – Why would you even want to buy a decal when you are talented enough to paint your own? Come on, you can do it – you just need to me encouraged! Never be afraid to use your God-given talents – you have so many!!”

so literally minutes after i read her message i grabbed my white paint and started painting … free hand. i decided to go with the trees. and if i must say so myself i am super pleased with the results. (and i saved $85 plus shipping.)

so the trees need another coat, touch-ups, etcs … i will share more photos and details next week.

ok, now on to the winner …. drumrolll please … leslie from the DIY diaries!

congrats leslie!! please email me your mailing address and i will get your goodies out asap. it’s funny that leslie was the winner because she was/in also considering some decals too! check it out.

again … thanks to everyone for your advice! you guys rocks!

    That looks awesome! I am thinking of doing something similar to take the place of a headboard in a 2nd floor bedroom in a Cape Cod style house. The short walls do not allow for an actual headboard. I just have to find the right design.

    This looks so great. I love the light fixture, too. Have you done a full tour of your house? I don’t think I’ve ever seen it.
