The original image for my song bird nursery idea is a vector illustration by Simon Oxley, purchased for $7 at istockphoto.com. The size of the finished mural is 55 x 42 inches (140 x 108 cms). The colors are from the Sherwin Williams palette: "Lime Rickey" (SW 6717), "Arresting Auburn" (SW 6034), and Extra White. The background wall is painted in "Afternoon" (SW 6675).

All in all, I reckon that the whole project took about 40 hours of work. Yikes!

I thought I’d share my process and what I learned for all those interested in ever doing something like this, because man! if you’re going to bother with a project this ambitious (a great way to forget you still have 10 more weeks of explosive pregnant belly growth to go through), you might as well do it well.

You can find out how Maria went about painting this beautiful mural at her blog, Mafemaria..

TIP: If painting or making your own tree seems a bit daunting, try an easy stick, removable tree wall decal. There are lots of beautiful ones available and they really brighten up the room!

Really liked your idea, so I googled a bit about the creator of the bird illustration and then I realized this is the twitter logo!
Very pretty, love your work.
