Julie Anna is my Grand Niece.
She is two.
She is going to be a big sister.
Her baby sister is due around the New Year, and Julie Anna is moving into a new room between now and then.
Her new room is pretty plain at the moment.
The walls are blank and boring, so I painted a mural for Julie Anna.
I called it Julie Anna’s House.
Step one: To get my client onboard, I let her handle my tools.
Step two: Get some paint on the wall. Use sheets to keep the rest of the wall reasonably clean.
Step Three: Add loads of little details for your client to stare at as she goes to sleep at night, or is failing to take her nap.
Step four: Show your client the finished mural and see if she approves.
Step five: Give her a hug and wish her luck as a big sister. It is a wonderful thing to be.
Update: Julie Anna’s Daddy installed chair Rail and painted. Her Mommy Karen painted an old desk in purple with a white overcoat and distressed it. Her room is really coming together.
Further update: Baby sister Karla Whitney Wurzinger was born on 12/30/13 and already has found a good place to be, on big sister Julie Anna’s lap.
