A fun way to add a "mountain view" to a room in your home.
When we decided to move from New Orleans to Denver in the fall, there was one thing my boyfriend's daughter wanted in her room: a mountain view. However, an actual mountain view was proving to be quite pricey.

So, I promised her that no matter which house we bought, I would create a mountain view for her.

When we settled on a house, and Aurora settled on the room she wanted, I got to painting. When I was done, I also added a cloud ceiling which really makes you feel like you're outside when you're in her room. The link for the tutorial for the cloud ceiling can be found in the last step of this post.

Though this project takes several days due to drying periods, it really is simple to create this beautiful mountain bedroom!
