FROM CLOSET TO LOG CABIN ~ HAND PAINTING LOG CABIN ARTWORK FOR TRENTON'S ROOMTrenton is a teenager, now. But, when he was three or four years old his mother wanted to make some changes to his bedroom. The room had two closets and she decided she wanted one of them to be turned into a built-in bed surrounded by a log cabin.
Dad and his friend did the remodeling and mom asked me to paint the log cabin.
Dad and a friend opened up the closet and built the frame for the bed
They attached corrugated metal roofing sheets to make it look like a real roof.
I painted the log cabin and just couldn't stop there!
I painted scenery all around the room.
I painted this farm and cows. Painted trees and bushes all around the room. If you look closely, you will see a bird nest that I painted just under the tin roof of the cabin.
I painted the ceiling blue like a sky and painted white clouds.
This tree has a squirrel resting on a limb and that is sweet Simba (a real cat!) on the table.
At first Trenton didn't want to sleep in the new bed.
Mom and dad found that cute little buffalo head that talked and hung it above the fireplace.
That was all Trenton needed to feel safe in his new bed!!
