On Friday I was able to complete one of the girls bathrooms, but did not have a chance to post. This bathroom is occupied by a 12 y/o girl and a 7 y/o girl. They wanted a very girlie theme and already had some neat French themed pictures and accessories. That was my inspiration for this room.
This is painted over the jacuzzi. I did a soft striae finish on all walls in this room first (except the wall with the storefront mural).
Here is a close up view of the cat.
I added the draped fabric and rod last minute because I felt the wall needed a little something extra.

I certainly cannot take full credit for this design concept. A friend of mine, who is a decorative painter in Florida, did this Parisian theme a while ago and sent me the pictures. She also was kind enough to share with me her sketch for the shoes and dress, so I could make an overhead. I invite you to visit Tammi Lathum’s website, Matilda Jane to view some of her wonderful work. Thanks Tammi! Other credits for this mural belong to Jan Dressler stencils for the hat design. I used a stencil designed by Karrie Butler for the cat, but I believe I bought that at a close out sale. I see P.J. Tetrault carries some of Karrie’s stencils. The curtain rod design, Twist Finial, is by Lynn Brehm, and lastly, the Small Paisley design on the purse and the Brocade Design on the draped fabric are from Royal Design Studio. For some of this mural I projected the outline of the design on the wall and then free hand painted. I used a stencil for the cat, but then ended up hand painting the majority of the detail. I used Tammi’s dress, hanger, shoes and window front design from an overhead projected and hand painted.
