I started out with a piece of wood. Sketch out my mermaid and started jigsawing! I think my husband was waiting to call an ambulance. I would say I felt I was safe. I mean, I knew where all my fingers were in relationship to the blade at all times. Anyways, here is my shape cut out (and I didn't even cut off a single finger).
Now for the part I felt was agonizing. What should I do? Stain? Paint? After much deliberation, I decided to go for painting it. What color should I go with? So many options! Since my walls are a light blue, I decided to go with an orange and navy for the color pop. Here is pictures from beginning to end.
After all of that work, I don't know how I feel about it right there.
