Picture Tree






The other night I was google searching tree art for my family room walls. During that search I found this adorable vinyl tree:

It's not at all what I wanted for the family room, but I WANTED it somewhere...

I went completely head over heals for this tree!
After a totally sleepless night of thinking about how to do it

and where to put it, I came up with this:

I painted it with some leftover black paint from another project.

I opted to simplify the trunk, I think I like it.

We all LOVE these new pictures my Sister in law

Alexia took. (Her website is currently under construction, check back though!)

It's fun to be able to see the pictures as we gather around our table.

I recycled (spray painted black) some frames I already had.

Total cost for this project $7.00 for photo printing.

Yahoo!!

OK, Taija I think we will have to work out some trade or something. I NEED you to paint this for me in my hallway where I am doing a family tree of sorts, or in my family room. Please?? Don't you want a trip to Vegas? I'll take your pictures or something. I LOVE IT!!!!!

Tara said...

Realizing I'll have to offer something else like money seeing as you have a talented SIL who just took new pictures for you!

Oh my goodness!!! Is the top image available in vinyl?? The link didn't work quite right... I would love this in my bedroom but don't have the skill to paint it! :)

Taija said...

Janet- I have been trying to figure out how this can be purchased too. You're right the link doesn't work right. It comes up on google images, but when I click on it's link there isn't an option for buying it. I'm so sorry!

Patti said...

Taija, this is soooo beautiful. I want to copy you! Can I??? I just don't know where I'd put it. I'm wanting to get away from the rustic, cabin-y look of my own home, and make it more like this! I love it. Thanks for sharing.
You're amazing.

Heya this is kind of of off topic but I was wanting to know if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have
to manually code with HTML. I'm starting a blog soon but have no coding knowledge so I wanted to get advice from someone with experience. Any help would be enormously appreciated!
