My mom and step dad came to me asking if I would want to paint flowers on their shed for them. Obviously my answer was hells yes, that could be soooo fun. Not to mention relaxing. I love sitting down and painting for hours, it’s one of the best ways to relax myself. Their shed is a medium grey with white trim, and they weren’t too picky about what flowers they wanted so I was looking forward to getting it started asap for them. My mom and I went over to Home Depot and picked out the colors we wanted – bright! I mixed a lot of the colors for shading and getting specific colors that I wanted. It worked out awesome.
Here’s what I started with:
After hosing down the shed and getting all the dirt off, I started out with a calla lily. My mom LOVES calla lilies – it was her and my step dad’s wedding flower, also the flower I used on their wedding invitations. So I wanted to make the calla lilies look awesome.
I guess I can’t take all the credit for painting the shed, I did have some help…Miss Jazzy Lynn (below) did most of the work.
Next up, daisies. Love blue, love daisies.
Poppies next. Who doesn’t love little poppies?
Then came the tulips. I can’t lie – I love how these turned out.
A blue and white lily and another poppy…
And of course sunflowers. Because really what is a flower mural without some sunflowers?
Now time to add in some final details like grass, a couple snowdrop flowers, little grape hyacinths…
And of course one last calla lily for the back side of the shed, and it’s complete.
So what do you think? I love the outcome – it took me over a month to complete, and I think all the time and effort was well worth it. My mom and step dad love it, so that’s all that matters!
