Nursery Tour

Nick and I painted this mural in the fall of 2005 when I was pregnant with Bennet. Nick is a huge Chuck Jones fan. He is responsible for all the best Looney Tunes cartoons we remember from our childhood.







We wanted something gender neutral so this was it. It took a LONG time. Many an evening were spent in this room. For 2 1/2 months we spent every night after work painting. Our fridge was filled with containers of custom colors. Nick took digital still images from the dvd cartoon itself to mirror the exact colors/etc. We used a data projector to put the image on the wall and Nick hand drew from there.



It's a small room so it's hard to get good photos. We painted the bottom and installed the chair rail as well. Now to get the crib re-installed.







Some close ups of my favorite parts of the room.
I just love this funky tree coming out of the corner.
