Photo Extra: Zoodle's nursery--the painting

The ongoing project titled "Finish my kid's nursery before he graduates high school" continues! Armed with my computer (loaded with a cool, free, western-themed font I downloaded) a projector borrowed from The Engineer's office, and about $10 worth of materials (craft paints and brushes), I set to work today.

Told you I'd do something with that lasso on the wall! By the way, Zoodle's real name starts with an "E."

Using the projector, I pencilled in the outlines of the "brand" and the letters before turning off the projector and painting them. It worked well, and was a great, simple way to put decorative lettering on the wall. Zoodle could care less...but I sure do like it!

I remember when I first read Zoodle's actual name. It freaked me out. I felt like a spy or intruder.

Room seems to be really coming together!

Thats soo cute - sometimes I wish we owned a house so that we could do cool stuff like that. The thought usually passes when I think of all the extra stuff that comes with owning and the moving we do as a military family. It would still be fun to actually decorate without getting yelled at about the number of holes though!

What a great idea to do that. It looks awesome. I'm hoping to get Asher's new room finished this weekend before Grandma's visit. It was so nice in our old place I just haven't had the drive to get it done over here.
