Fore & Aft ~

Here's out little bathroom before I got the urge to paint a mural above the wainscoting ~




and here is how it looks now ~




of course I had to incorporate little white farmhouses, curly willow trees, folk art bushes and rolling hills into my work :)

not finished *tweaking* yet, and then I still have to make the shade & curtains...

do you like the mural? tell me what you think!!
(somehow, the room feels bigger to me now!)


Blessings from the Farm!

Rebecca said...

It is beautiful. I always wanted to do this to a room but to chicken due to painting skills.
It's bigger because you have the whole outdoors to look at now and imagine. ;)
Did you include any sheep or animals grazing on a hill?

Lori Ann Corelis said...

Given how much time I've spent in the bathroom lately we're trying to potty train our 2 yr old) I'd love to have this to look at. Great work!

The mural is a dream...such an enchanting place to be now!

Jennifer said...

Love it. I want to get up the nerve to paint prim scenes on the risers of my steps. Saw it in some ancient 'Country Living' magazine and I've been building toward tackling that project for over 20 years now.
You did a great job. The bathroom looks lovely. Really like you patriotic blog header too.

Queen Of The Armchair aka Dzintra Stitcheries said...

That is sooooo cute...I love it...Well done!!!!

From Sherry's Heart said...

So the way The Queen sees it is that if should happen to be in the unfortunate position of a temporary problem that would force you to keep your position on the Throne in there for a bit of an extended time looking around that bathroom would definately at the very least make it a much more pleaserable time at least for the eyes!!!!

From Sherry's Heart said...

Just wanted to add...
GREAT JOB!!!! Can't wait to see it totally completed!!!!!
