Since we moved here a year ago, she has been begging me to paint her room. This turned into wanting a mural of Eypt in her room. Yeah, that wasn't going to happen.
So my compromise was to paint her a faux mini mural. It had to be flat enough to fit against her wall but also large enough to make her feel she was getting a mural. Thankfully, her room is tiny.
I used one of those tri-fold cardboard science fair boards and acrylic craft pain. Voila. She has her painting.
