    We are painting fun murals inside the coop. As the coop is for the kids, but, I'm sure I'll be the one doing the majority of things.
    we are using all environmentally friendly and non toxic paint of course.

    Middleton, WI friend sketched murals on the older, small coop wall (2 roos in the grass) and the outside 4x8 plywood wall of the run (huge red poppies on a green background) Her 10 y/o daughter and I helped color them. I have since moved the poppy mural in the big coop. I also have a few chicken signs, metal/ceramic figurines and things on the walls and sitting on a shelf.....Not your 'normal' chicken coop...but then, normal is highly overrated [​IMG] And the chickens don't care [​IMG]

    I've thought about doing something inside my coop but haven't gotten any particular inspiration.

    I can't wait until mine is complete, I have a big sun on the ceiling, a rooster crowing on a stump, a hen laying in the straw with two babies behind her. I also painted a fence with a crow sitting on it and a cactus. My daughter painted a pony, a car, a tractor and a farm scene, my son scribbled and my mum painted caterpillars and frogs and butterflies and a pony out of my favorite book when I was a child -SPARKLES THE PONY.

    I am now finishing off some hills with a barn at the top. Then will finish with flowers and ladybugs and more butterflies.
    The ground has been dug outside for putting the fence in, for predator control and the run should be complete by Tuesday. Fingers crossed.

    I am glad that some others have done the same. I thought maybe we were too excited and ambitious. haha.
    It's nice though, we've had alot of family working on the project. The coop that love built, lol.
