Apple Tree Wall Mural

When we moved into our studio apartment this March, the previous tenant left a plaster wall that she built herself. I was grateful to have the separation, but had no idea how to really integrate it into our home. The plaster was crumbling off of it, and my husband David suggested patching it with some putty we originally bought for the bathroom.

Luckily my little touch up job worked, but we were left with an ugly line of puffy plaster in the middle of the wall (which unfortunately you can't see here)...

That's when David had the brilliant idea of drawing a tree on the wall to cover the line!

That's when my wheels started turning ;) I wanted something very simple, Scandinavian and child friendly - so this is what I came up with!

My sister-in-law has a few apple trees in her yard in Austria, and we would often lay under them and enjoy the beautiful apples, moss, and the occasional green worm trying to eat a meal.

If you are a family or school in the Jersey City, Hoboken or NYC area that could use a little wall art to spruce up your space, let me know - and I'll see what I can whip up for you!
