I saw something like this on Pinterest and HAD to try it. Our living and dining room share a huge wall with a vaulted ceiling and I had no idea what to put behind the dining room table...no room for a bakers rack or buffet/hutch and DH didn't want shelves sticking out. So I thought this would be perfect!
I did a google search for trees then under advanced search clicked on line drawing. When I found a tree I liked, I traced it onto transparency paper and borrowed an overhead projector from work. Once I had the image the right size on the wall I traced it with a pencil then went back and filled it in with acrylic paint. I used a leaf stencil for the leaves. I still need to add some more family photos but I'm very happy with the way it came out. It's huge though! :)
