Our Calvin & Hobbes Mural for the Nursery!!

Happy Friday!  I am officially 36 weeks pregnant, whoa!  Only 4 weeks to go until my due date, but it really could be any day now from here on out!

Back when I was in my 2nd trimester, Brett and I started thinking about what we wanted the nursery to look like.  We have both always loved the Calvin and Hobbes comic books and have almost all of them between the two of us.  Well, back in October, when we found out we were having a BOY (!!), we just knew we had to use a Calvin and Hobbes theme!

And for some crazy reason, I decided to take it upon myself to actually paint a Calvin and Hobbes wall mural in the nursery.  We figured out which picture we wanted to use and then I finally got around to working on it at the beginning of January.  I sketched the picture on the wall in pencil and then had my mom and sister help me with the painting.  All in all, it only took us two full days of work!  And I seriously could not be more happy with it!

Here's the process of how it went from start to finish...


Annnnd finally finished!!


I am seriously so obsessed with it!  Every time I walk by this room, I find myself stopping just to stare at it.  I love it so much.  And I really hope baby boy loves it too!!  Now, we are just finishing up organizing the rest of the nursery with furniture, clothes, and all those other little details.  Hopefully once it's officially done, I will post some pictures of the whole nursery!  Hooray! =)
