Racecar Themed Mural for a Little Boy's Room

This week, I painted a race track themed mural for a little boy's room. I painted his nursery before he was born, and now he is 2 years old, and moving into his "big boy" room. Time flies!

Here was his tree that I painted back in 2009 (!!!), and here is his new car themed room!

I forgot my "real" camera, so this is just a montage of iPhone pics - sorry! I hope to get better pictures in the future.

the race track is a real loop, and wraps around the room, so that you can follow the cars. There are about 15 cars or so. All of the cars have a number, and I thought it would be cute to sort of personalize the cars by adding the little boy's name to one of them, and then other family businesses and affiliations on them as the "sponsors" for the race. :)

  4. When/If I have a little boy I'd love to do something like this. But, I'll probably use chalkboard paint for the roads.
