Boys bedroom idea mural-Flashback Friday

I thought it would be funny to pull out some pictures from a room I did way over 12 years ago when I had my mural painting business. It was for a family who had two boys. The one boy loved boxing. He loved everything about it and we for his boys bedroom idea, we decided to do a boxing ring. The homeowners were building a new house and wanted me to come in and paint before the carpet went in. Which with the way I paint is a great idea!

The first thing they wanted was an armoire painted red. Now, please remember that this was over 12 years ago. I would never paint such an awesome piece of furniture like this now. It was great quality and solid wood. It was also as heavy as all get out! I remember trying to get this into my van and feeling my shoulders  almost pull out of my sockets trying lift it out.

I was working with a designer and the red went on.

It was cute, but they decided they wanted the red toned down a bit.This is when glazing furniture was all the rage.

So to make it  a boxing themed room, I painted “ropes” all around the room.

And I mean all the way around. It was really interesting trying to keep those lines straight.

We even added some boxing gloves.

We even found a red nightstand to match. It was a cute room for the time. Even though no one really does murals any more,at one time I was really busy.It’s so funny how trends like that come and go.

It’s kind of fun to look back and see how much my life has changed, and where I was. At that time I had this big dream that I thought would never come true to write a book.:)
