Ohh cool Kyle! You have quite a talent there for decorating :o) I guess that's why your gardens come out so good. It looks great. You've done a fabulous job!

Norwalk, IA(Zone 5b)

Kyle: It is fantastic. Did you do the drawing on the wall. Everything is exquisite. You have had to been collecting all your artifacts for awhile.

Piedmont, MO(Zone 6a)

Looks like a museum! My husband would love this room. Any chance you could share with us some of your sources for these throws and statues? I live in a rural area and shop online a lot and would like to get him a few Egyptian things. Thanks, Susan (Toxic)

Norwalk, IA(Zone 5b)

Toxic..there is a store in Des Moines here that sells most of these statues and throws..also online on his website.
www.egyptiantreasure.com I also get things from Design Toscano in Chicago..also online.

Debby,
The drawing on the wall is getting painted in like real wall paintings.I got the patterns from line drawings and scanned them then made transparencies to project and trace on the walls. Then I fill them in with color. :-) They will cover 3 walls when I'm done. I hope!!!LOL

Piedmont, MO(Zone 6a)

Great websites, Eclipse, Thanks so much!
Susan

Gosh Kyle, that looks great. You have done a lot to get this room ready. Can't wait to see the finished project.

Lake Toxaway, NC(Zone 7a)

Wow! I don't know what I like the most. What is the make/color of paint? It's beautiful! I love the harpist drawing on the wall, too, the coverlet and especially the door panels. Great Job!

Norwalk, IA(Zone 5b)

Wood, the color was a computer match of a sample from somewhere I don't remember..I tried to match the wall color with some temple and tomb wall colors so the pics on the walls will look more natural.

Lake Toxaway, NC(Zone 7a)

It appears to be awfully close to one I saw advertised called Sugar Maple, but I don't remember who made it. Beautiful!

Norwalk, IA(Zone 5b)

More recent pics of the walls...I have them almost finished with the murals now......more later on....

Milo, IA(Zone 5a)

Excellent. Kyle you always could go into Interior Decorating, if your new position doesn't meet your expectations. Love the Gold Drapes, they really set the whole room off.

Piedmont, MO(Zone 6a)

Thanks for posting more pics, Kyle. The room looks fantastic!

Norwalk, IA(Zone 5b)

I'm just reading this thread for the first time. WOW, you did a great job, Kyle! The murals are awesome and I like the rich gold of the walls.

Crossville, TN(Zone 7a)

Beautiful! I love the wall colour.

The wall color was computer matched at Lowes to match the color of some of the ancient tombs in Egypt.

Your murals turned out great! Is that just regular latex paint? The colors are so rich and beautiful.

OC, CA & Twin Lakes , IA(Zone 4b)

Beautiful!

Norwalk, IA(Zone 5b)

Gardenwife..I use Delta brand dreamcoat paints as well as other craft type acrylic paints.You can get metallics in them that look just like gold and bronze,copper, etc now.Quick drying and Michaels or Hobby Lobby carry hundreds of colors.I try to use authentic colors that were used in Egypt.Only about 6 base colors that they used. :-)

Newark, OH(Zone 5b)

Thanks, Kyle. If we ever get our kitchen painted, I want to put some sort of mural on the back wall, around the window facing the back yard.

Albany (again), NY(Zone 5b)

Beautiful room - the first picture gave me a laugh.

I think if I woke up with that statue next to my bed (and it was dark), I'd probably scream. I do admire your creativity! :)
