Family Tree Mural


If you have a boring hallway, a Family Tree Mural may be just the thing to breath new life into it.  That was certainly the case in my house.  I recently repainted and moved some things around, and in so doing, was reminded of how my hallway lacked luster.  So, before I tacked my photos back onto the plain wall, I went online, and found the inspiration for this swirly, whimsical tree mural.

Take a look at my hallway Before and you’ll see why I was so desperate to do something:


Then check out the amazing work of artist Michelle Mayden by clicking this link:  I LOVED her mural, and since Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, I free-handed my own version of it, using a darker shade of gray on my light gray walls.


Because I kept it simple, this family tree mural took no time at all.  And I was ready to start hanging photos as soon as it dried.  I thought about spray painting all my miss-matched frames black, so they would match, but then I really liked the fact that they were all different, so I left them alone.  I scattered the family photos around the branches, stepped back and took it all in with a smile.  The love of a family really is life’s greatest blessing, and now that their photos are placed on this Family Tree Mural, they’ll know how much I cherish them.

      Thank you, Dusty! Although, I got the idea from someone else. The original mural is way more impressive!
