Beach...Surfer...Mermaid Wall Art

I love Pottery Barn kids.

I want pretty much one of everything they sell.

However, I can't justify purchasing most of their items because they are WAY overpriced so I resort to flipping through their magazines and stealing (or borrowing) their great ideas and trying to recreate them myself.

I fell in love with a couple mermaid wall hangings they sell so I decided to try to make one myself to go in Wesley and Mackenzie's surfer/beach themed room.

I also wanted something more "boyish" to go with the mermaid so I came up with this palm tree and surf board idea.

All I did was cut out pieces of scrapbook paper and Mod Podged them to some canvas' I painted.

Surf's Up!

That's awesome! I thought you were showing us the PBK's first and when I scrolled down to see your version, I realized those *were* your version! Wow, great job!
