Our New Tree

Since we’ve moved in to our house a year and a half ago, Rob and I have looked and looked for the perfect piece of large art to put on our wall in our living room. We never found anything that we both agreed on. One day, Rob suggested that it would be cool if we had a tree coming out of the corner painted on the wall.  I agreed, but we didn’t know who we’d get to paint it, or what we wanted it to look like.  When talking to our friend Stephanie about the idea, she suggested using a wall decal instead of having it painted on.  So my search began.  I eventually found the tree I wanted through  by searching for tree decals.  They had HUNDREDS to choose from, but I narrowed it down and found the perfect one for our house.  This particular tree came from DaliDecals.

Last night we had some friends come over to help us decorate our wall.  The tree itself came in four separate pieces. And the leaves were all individually cut out and placed.  In the end we were all pleased with the results.  I was very grateful for the helping hands, as I never would have been able to get the tree lined up and placed as perfectly without their help.  Hopefully this is something that will last and we can enjoy for a while.  We’re pretty pleased with the way it’s turned out.  We still have a TON of leaves left over, so we may do some tweaking in the coming days, but this is what we have so far.
