A few weeks ago I got asked, if I like to paint the little boys room. Of course I confirmed, even though I never did something like this before. But thanks God I'm having a cousin who used to be a painter. He could give me important advices *smile*. Thanks Florian! I knew, this would be a huge project and it would take me weeks.
And I really worked the last few weeks nearly daily a few hours at this project. But I really enjoyed doing it. The boys could decide what I should paint. They wanted me to do a savanna, with lots of wild animals. Every boy could chose one personal animal, which I would paint next to their beds. In my sketch book I made a plan and than I started step by step restoring the whole room. It was a lot of work to prepare the working place every day again. As well in the evening I had to clean up every thing again, because the boys had to be able to sleep in their beds. But all the compliments of the boys and the sparkling eyes compensate for every single second of my effort. Now I hope they will enjoy their savanna to the full *smile*.
|Us so Ort choemed d'Chind vom Father's House. 10 Gschwueschterti isch kei Selteheit.|
From such places are the kids from the Father's House. To have10 silbings is quite normal here.
|De Rum vor em Mole.|
The room before I started to paint.
|Z'erscht han ich mol d'Loecher gstopft *smile*.|
The first thing I had to do is fill all the wholes.
|Die alt Farbe haet me eifach um de Cheischt umegmolet.|
De old paint was just around the cupboard.
|Nochdem ich d'Decki gmolet ha, isch d'Grundiearig vo de Waend dra cho.|
After I've painted the ceiling, I started the grounding of the wall.
|E helli Farb isch gwuenscht, so dass s'Zimmer nuem so dunkel schient.|
They wanted me to choose a light color, so that the room won't be so dark anymore.
|S'Abchlaebe vo allem haet amel au e Wieli duret.|
To tape all the different parts was very time consuming.
|Daenn noch vielne Taeg bin ich endlich ready gsi zum wuerklich los loh.|
Than after a lots of days I was finally ready to start with the real job.
|Endlich noch weiss ich wie viel Stunde, s'fertige Werk.|
Finally after I don't know how many hours. The final work!
|Wil die chine Buebe oft chli ueberstellig sind, han ich d"Wandmolerei chli ruhig woelle gstallte.|
The small boys are often a little hyper. Therefore I wanted to do the painting in a quiet stile.
|Mis erschte Werk!|
My frist work!
|Fuer de Leopard han ich oepe 8 Stund brucht.|
For this leopard I used around 8 hours.
|De Gepard, s'schnellschte Tier vo de Welt.|
A cheetah, the fastest animal in the word.
|Bim Mole han ich mir ueberleit, wa fuer e bsunderigs Tier de Giraff isch.|
While painting I thought about how awesome this special animal is.
|Leider haet de Beamer mit de Zit nuem moege.|
Unfortunately after many hours of painting, the projector didn't work anymore.
|Wenn ich laenger do waer, het ich no me Zit gha fuer so chlini Details *smile*.|
If I was here even longer, I'm could have done even more little details.
