We decided on a large tree in the corner around the bed. Originally the body of the trunk was going to be in the corner, but when I sketched it in, it just looked weird, so we moved it to one wall and let the branches spread out around the headboard.
Then, since the owls are the focal point in this collection, I made some stencils and we placed owls in various "perches" in the room, to watch over her in her new "big girl" bedroom.
Above the closet door.
Above the window.
And above the other window looking towards the bed.
Both Mom and daughter love the new room. The daughter loves the owls in particular. She says goodnight to them and reads to them, and each one has a name. So sweet!
For the nursery, we decided on a simple alphabet border done in bright colors to coordinate with sheets and bedding she already had. So, I made a stencil using a fun and simple computer font, we played with the size of the letters for a while before we settled on these which ended up being about 4 inches tall. I chose a corner of the room and stenciled all the way around alternating colors like this---
I loved the way both rooms turned out, and so did Mom and Dad. After finishing their rooms it was all I could do not to run home and repaint every room in my own house! Not sure my husband would appreciate that kind of chaos......but maybe if I just start in one room....
