    Just images I can paint on my wall.... My kitchen and office seems so boring lately, that I got some paint that is a match, but a few shades darker then each room. I want to do some hand painted scroll work on them.

    On room it will fill a rectangular area of 5 ft tall by only 3 1/2 ft wide so wouldn't want anything too long. The room is kinda french country with a burnt umber color.

    The second room (my kitchen) I want to paint it on a soffit that is like 8 ft long by only 1 1/2 ft high. This room a light sage green and again old european county vibe. I got lion heads on the wall for shelves and wrought iron scroll patters pieces hanging everywhere.

    Just want some ideas, things you've seen you like.

    Its just for fun and some accents to break up the solid boring space. (This is why I did stripes in the living room... not boring and I don't want to mess with it anymore! LOL)

    I don't know if this helps but in my friends house above their entry way it says "A house is not a home if it lacks the love of friends and family" it's in beautiful script writing, her mom did it free hand. She did it with some glitter in the paint which adds a cute charm.

    "Always, Forever and No Matter What!"

    "I love hugs and I love kisses, but what I love most is help with the dishes" for the kitchen?

    "To the world you may be one person, but to one person you may be the world" in the office?

    yes ara, almost like celtic knot like, or floral.

    I'm just trying to do something almost background like... so I can hang photos on and around them in the office. That's why words won't work... and I need something that will take up considerable space.

    When I find some good ones and get it done I will share photos. [​IMG]
