So earlier this week I painted my bulletin boards black. I've been sitting with it, and it's just not me. doesn't make me happy to look at, and seems like it sucks the energy out of the room. Here's the transformation:
Board divided into 4 sections, one for each season
Sky painted in, green trim done. This took about an hour.
Grass, trees, water added. Sun started.
5 hours into it. Not done, but a good stopping point.
