I started it out by making the scallops by tracing around a dinner plate. It seems I love to paint using dishes as outlines!!!!The dots in the nursery were from a saucer, a plate and a platter.
Jesse and I then started the slow process of painting around the scallops
I then rolled on the rest of the paint.The hardest part I think was erasing my pencil line, I used up every eraser in the house and had to go buy a bigger eraser to finish it up.
Jesse is terrified of heights, but she climbed right up on the ladder and went to work making the bigger dots, just a few inches from the ceiling.
If they didn't come out perfect she would fix them up with a small brush, oh to be young with good eyes!!!
Almost done with the ladder!!!
Camdyn was confined to her walker so she wouldn't get into the paint, I let her play with my extra paintbrushes!!!
She watched me all day, measure the heights of the little and big dots, so when I let her out of her walker, she grabbed my ruler and tried her hand at measuring!!! Whoever says babies don't absorb everything we do is wrong!!!!
Did I say I love to iron???? After ironing the comforter, the bed skirt, the pillow shams, hmmm.... not so much anymore!!!!
I put this small silk tree in the room, but I went out and bought some flowers for the bottom and I had to buy a bird and a bird nest for my tree!!!
I stenciled a vine and flowers over the window and closet.

A closer look.
The flowers I stenciled are the same colors as in the toss pillows.
My bird collection on the night stand.
My bird house, I love it!!!I want to get a few more.
Love these metal pictures I found!!!
