That is so cool! Did you do the painting free hand or use stencils?

Very creative!

amazingly neither!

i had my bf, a graphic designer, come up with the concept; she had the "shapes" put on transparent paper at the college where she works. we borrowed an overhead projector from another designer friend & traced the shapes onto the wall - then i spent probably a hundred hours (exagerating just a bit here LOL) painting and re-painting the shapes until they were opaque

all in all, it only cost us the price of paint!

the big shelf along the wall? from Ikea, it was super cheap & its very sturdy so when he tries walking or hoisting himself up it won't fall on him
