At this point, I think you all are aware of my mild Harry Potter obsession.
I can't help it. I love castles! I love magic! I'm a nerd!
Well a couple years ago when Ben and I were planning our wedding, I decided we should have a Hogwarts illustration at our lovebirds table at the reception, because #Hagrid. What's the lovebirds table called? I feel like there's a formal name for it, like the couples table? SWEETHEART TABLE, that's it! Anyway, so I made this:
After our wedding I framed it and it hung in my studio and I kept imagining a day when I could make a giant Hogwarts mural in our house.
Well I finally decided to stop imagining and start painting! Below is a sneak peek of the start of the mural that I'm making in our extra bedroom!
PLUS, this is stellar timing, because our BFF Riley is about to move into this room and now he'll get to look at Hogwarts ERRYDAY. #dreamsdocometrue
I still have lots of fun details to fill in, but the gist of the painting is there! I should mention that this was made loadssss easier thanks to my new projector (that I talked about in this post!).
So friends, if you were going to have a weird mural in your home...what would it be? Something from a favorite movie? Book? Your cat? What's holding you back? Comment below!
