....oops! It's a Boy!

It's not often I get to paint a nursery twice for the same baby! But such was the case here. Carol received quite a shock when she found out her soon to arrive baby was in fact, a boy!!! I painted the room to match the "Baby Cocoa" bedding set shown in the photo on left. Click on the image to see a close up of these adorable hand painted characters!

"For anyone considering a removable wall sticker or decal, Think again...nothing can replace the kind of original artwork and talent that you will get from Leslie's hand-crafted designs. I simply can't say enough what a true, "one of a kind"  and lasting creation that she has provided for my son for many years to come!

* * * * * Five Stars!"         - Todd Wolf  Gurnee, Illinois

How about hot pink and zebra stripes?!

These zebra stripes were hand painted to coordinate with the zebra striped comforter and window treatments!

They were painted just on this portion of the ceiling, over the entrance of the bedroom.
