Yes, you read that correctly. I’ve been painting a mural in a closet. Which is a first for me.
A client of mine bought her granddaughter a play kitchen. My client thought that it would be fun to put the kitchen in her butler’s pantry closet. The closet is a perfect choice because it is close to her kitchen and living area and offers an out of the way place for toys.
The play kitchen is a super cute, hot red forties style kitchen. We played off of that theme for the mural’s design. I painted a window complete with a geranium plant and a sweet kitten to give it an open airy feeling.
On the other side of the room we added shelving to store all of the dishes and pot holders. No kitchen would be complete without hand towels.
I had just finished the two mural walls when the client asked if I couldn’t add murals of her two dogs, since we had a kitty in the mural? Sure! I painted Leila the basset hound.
And Zoey the Maltese. All that this closet needs is a homey rag rug to complete the room. My client and her granddaughter love it!
I finished the closet mural, but I wasn’t done yet. Remember this jungle mural I did last year for this same client? We only painted part of the room, as we were waiting on furniture to see where we wanted to paint.
The super awesome curved sofa finally arrived. We painted foliage around the walls next to the sofa.
A hummingbird with flowers was painted next to the windows.
The opposite side of the room seemed a bit naked, so we added a small tree.
And if you thought that I was finished – you would be wrong! I started this room yesterday. Stay tuned for the room reveal at a later date.
I’m starting to feel like Eldon the painter on the TV show Murphy Brown. I thought that I would only be painting for a week. Before I know it, it will have eight years….
Oh well, at least it will be a fun eight years!
