GOODe Projects: Lil' McAddie's Farm - Pt. 1

Recently one of my readers asked about the painted fence in Ms. Add's room...

The fence is a part of the farm scene I painted while we were expecting Miss Add.

I painted the room over two VERY snowy days in February.

I heart painting.

I really should do it more.

There is something liberating about just being able to paint over something and make it whatever you want...

Where a drab white wall existed, an apple tree grew.

An apple tree that we count apples on regularly these days ;)

And clouds appeared in a pretty blue sky

And where a door once stood, a barn appeared

Tune in tomorrow for a tutorial on how to make this little fence.
I am going to have to do a re-shoot of a faux remake because I didn't take nearly as many pictures back then as I do these days ;)

It really easy as 1- 2 -3.

Want a sneak peek at the secret weapon?
If you don't know Sharpie... you GOTS to get to know her. More on that tomorrow. ;)

4 GOODe Thoughts:

What a great room!
What a great mom too! I think it's awesome of you to have made Addie's room so fun and personal just for her! I'm sure she just loves it!
Have a great day!

Oh, wow!
You are so talented! Would you come to my house?
I want a French countryside with grape fields and trellises and lavender!
I know Sharpie! She my friend girl, too.
I wanna know what you know about Sharpie that I don't know. I want some gossip!

Cute!Cute!Cute! I only dream of being as artistic as you are, but I love Add's room!

Thank ya ladies! It really is easy.

As for my Sharpie secret, she is the best painting tool in my toolbox!
