This is one of the wall's in little Carly Belle's bedroom. I inherited the birdhouses from my super-artsy grandmother and then re-purposed the mats and frames of some artwork we already had. Each of the birds is made from different paper scraps I had on hand, and the buttons were some that came with a blouse I got a while ago.
I would, one day, like to either paint or have a vinyl tree made like this to go behind the birdhouses and birds. I haven't found a tree I am absolutely in love with yet and I am also debating whether to paint it or do the vinyl decal route. If I paint it, then it saves some money...but I am not super good at artistic stuff like this (good thing Todd is pretty handy with a paint brush). But If I do the decal, then it may look better and have cleaner lines and I don't have to draw the design on the wall first.
We'll see what becomes of this wall. By the way, they were already painted this shade of blue and I rather like it. I have a nice quilt with blues, pinks, greens and whites that I use in Carly's crib, so it is just coming together swimmingly.
