Knock it off

Its a Pottery Barn knock off! THIS little baby sells for $29 I already had the vinyl so I didn't have to spend any money on this one!
I used Kalocsai Flowers font for the purple flowers and leaves.  I used Wingding 2 font for the pink flowers. For the green vines I used Nymphette font and stretched it out long, I also used the same thing for the curly things by the initials. (you can download these fonts for free at dafont.com)

Sorry about the lighting. There is one window and it is south facing. Plus, no over head light. I only had a floor lamp to work with. 

BEFORE: boring white space above the closet that is screaming for something creative and for that wreath to come down. (please ignore the cloth storage above. I will work on that later)








Weeding vinyl:

The top is the whole flower. The bottom is a piece of the flower I used.
















I wanted the middle of the flowers to be yellow. Waits of vinyl, yep. Do I care, nope. It was worth it.














AFTER:
The flowers and N are in a bright pink. The pictures make the color look different.








I wanted more purple in it so I added parts of the flower up by the 'N' too.














I really LOVE how it turned out. It is perfect for the space. I think I would have liked it better if the N was bigger.
