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
Blue painter’s tape
Brush and roller
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.
Fill in the drops- don’t worry about staying in the lines. You will create perfect outlines in the next steps with METAL .05 chalkboard paint.
See! Perfect outlines!
Once finished with outlining the drops with METAL .05, fill in the rest of the space with a roller. Check out the video below and watch how we made the Rain Rain Go Away!
