The Modern Nature Themed Nursery: Birch Tree Mural

Mr. made it clear he didn't want an overly girly nursery and it was his study that was being taken away, so I wanted something that he would like (but wasn't too masculine--sorry hunter green and maroon didn't make the cut).  

We decided on the birch tree fad and a neutral nature base with pops of color.  I had already painted the room Sherwin Williams Modern Gray right before Baby Girl was in the picture so we kept the walls the same color and embellished the crib wall with a mural.  

Mr. did most of the painting since we were down to the wire on my due date and I was working long hours (too many) at work to wrap everything up.  We took a while to settle on the size/placement of the trees but once we did it was as easy as:

1 {tape off and paint tree trunks} 

2 {Paint Tree Branches}

3 {paint detail & fix branches you don't like w/ original wall color}
