Deer Head

13 Sep

My sister has skills.  I am talking out of this world, holy crap, mad skills.

She came up to meet Hudson a while ago and while she was here I put her to work because she can make things I couldn’t even dream of making.  And she will do it in a few hours without breaking a sweat or thinking twice about it.

I wanted Hudson’s room to be boyish but not in the sense of sports or just dark blue and random.  I saw a few pictures on pinterest and showed Caroline what I was thinking.  She got right to work after giving Hudson some smooches to him chubby cheeks.

She used a huge picture that we bought in Ely for $5 at the Goodwill.  It had some super lame landscape scene on it.  (wish I had gotten a picture of it but trust me- it was lame).


She painted strips over the landscape scene and when that dried she drew the outline of a deer head with chalk.  She used chalk so if she needed to move the line a little this way or that it was easy to fix instead of redoing the entire picture.


She even made the frame match the colors of his room and look very worn and vintage.  (I didn’t even know you could do that!)


I will show you Hudson’s finished room in a few days, until then- this is the focal point of the room and I couldn’t be more happy with how it turned out.  Thanks Aunt Lina!

ps if you need some Wedding, Birthday, Anniversary etc cakes done or pictures painted for you head over here.  She’s got skills and she knows how to use them =)
