A mural and a winner...

Saturday night I got a wild hair up my you-know-what and decided to draw on this wall.
The wall measures about 6 feet by 9 feet.  It had a couple of awkward shelves on it that weren't working out.  It is literally the first thing you see when you walk in our home.

On Sunday I got out my paints and started going to town.
Mike took some surprise photos of me as I was working.  I had my Pandora station set to Brandi Carlisle and I was having a blast.

 This is where I was at as of last night:

The walls are very porous and everything needs at least two coats.
I'm having so much fun painting it.
I'm hoping to get back to it tomorrow.


Oh, and I didn't forget about the lucky winner for Lindsay's $25 gift card.
Congratulations Suzanne!  :)
