W.O.W. Results- I Painted! : )

I'm a wannabe, but I had fun!

I didn't know what I was going to paint exactly, just that I was itching to be creative. So, I grabbed some acrylic paints, brushes, stencils, and the value double pack of canvases at Michael's and pretended I was a little kid again. I searched the Internet for inspiration and then just started paining. You gotta try it! It is so much fun!

The view above Prince Charming's dresser last week:





















Here it is this week:





























And Papa's handsome picture that was once in a boring white $2 frame, is now a $3 frame because I added some Fire Engine Red paint to it. : )


Before:





















After:



















And this guy is no longer sitting on the floor:




















It's hanging on the wall:
























Woo-Hoo. What a fun project! Thank you, Heidi and Emily for playing along with me and for the others of you who cheered me on.

I tried to take a painting class once, and I think the instructor had a hard time not laughing me out of the class. It was fun to try this and not need it to look like anything, just a little token of love from a mommy to her boy.

My kitchen table and floor were an art studio for the week. And I had to paint at night when kids were asleep who wanted desperately to HELP me with my project.





Now the girls want paintings for their rooms. A ball is one thing...painting Shawn Johnson and a puppy dog is another!

What do you think, Prince Charming. Do you like your room?


How did your projects go?

Amazing!!! What talent you have! And I have to ask: where did you get that adorable police car picture?
Great job!

You did awesome on those paintings! My baseball would have ended up looking like a rotten egg, and my football would have looked like a terd. I'm sure LOL. Papa's picture looks good in that red too! He'd be proud.

You are so talented. (You young kids must not care as much about sleep as us old folks do). You and Em both paint after a full day of taking care of kids. The room looks great!
