Coloring On The Walls On Purpose!

Aesthetic Outburst

During my lifetime I have drawn or colored on the walls several times. Although it was never "legal" and there were always consequences, it was still a joy nonetheless. A giant canvas where I could put anything I wanted; how awesome is that? That's exactly what's going on in this bedroom, but this Mom said it's a-okay!

Abbey and her family live in an old farm house in upstate New York and have many renovation projects on their list. Eventually they'll get to the second floor where the children's rooms reside. Until then, mom and dad have given the green light to the kids (and themselves) to draw on the walls and color until their heart is content. Even though they'll eventually cover this surface or tear it down altogether, it's fun for now and seems ridiculously rebellious all at the same time. Now if only they could come up with a way to legally jump on the bed too we'd be set! Check out more on Abbey's terrific blog Aesthetic Outburst.
