MAKE THIS: Springtime Scene - painting DIY project by Colorhouse

Like our Portland, Oregon skies in springtime, sunny ASPIRE .05 peeks out from behind grey clouds and makes us SMILE! In this cheerful nursery, raindrops appear gentle when drawn on a soft swatch of METAL .05 chalkboard paint. A strip of DREAM .02 on the trim reminds us that once you get above the clouds, there is nothing but blue sky.

Here’s what you will need to create this Portland springtime scene in your little one’s room:
1 gallon ASPIRE .05 eggshell
1 gallon DREAM .02 eggshell
1 qt METAL .05 chalkboard paint
1 qt IMAGINE .01 eggshell
Level
Blue painter’s tape
Pencil
Brush and roller
Drop cloth

Begin by taking the level and drawing a straight line across the room, 12″ up from the top of the trim. Tape off and seal. Fill in with DREAM .02. Start free-handing puffy clouds with IMAGINE .01 above the pegs.

Using the pencil, outline little raindrops.
