Ship Interior Playroom



I received a request from a customer to paint their upstairs bonus room to look like the interior of an old ship.  They had several ancestors that came from England and Europe and they wanted to dedicate this room to them.  The sides of the room are lined with bunk beds for fun sleepovers.  




So, it may look like wood paneling that is lining the room, but nope--it is MDF painted to look like wood.  Each panel in painstakingly hand painted with five different layers of paint techniques.  It is difficult to see the detail in this picture, but here are some close-ups.





Below each of the bunk beds there are drawers that I painted with a name of one of the client's ancestors.  It notes the name of the boat they came across on and the year that they came.

Not sure I will ever recover from this job.  We had to get it done in five days before a Parade of Homes.  I had lots of help from several ladies that were willing to sacrifice their time and bodies to help get it done in time.

I am a Massage Therapist and I love the wall painting you did that says "Strengthen your health with the healing hands of massage". I posted this on that blog yesterday but realized it was an older blog and decided to try to post on this one. Would you be able to do the "strengthen your health" wall as a wall decal? I would love to put it on the window between my entry foyer and my waiting room. Hoping to hear from you.
