Why I didn’t make the Swindon Winter Image Show

Post  bonsai monkey on Wed Mar 23, 2011 7:52 pm

My son Stirling had been promised to have his room decorated for his 7th birthday and as this coincided with half term and he and his sister were off to stay with the outlaws Bonsai was out and chores were in!! In the preceding weeks we had been asking him what he would like and it ended up after being themed on one of his favourite toys – Lego but not just any Lego but Star Wars Lego.

After hours of trawling on the internet we drew a complete blank. No wallpaper, borders, nothing. So it was left to Sally and I to paint a mural containing some of his favourite characters. After hours upon hours of hand painting and detailing here’s the results!







Although his room is very small we still managed to get C3-P0, R2-D2, Obiwan, 2 Ewoks and a Naboo Starfighter. We did luck in to 1 finishing touch, a colour changing lightsaber as a night light with a remote and “on/off” noises for our Jedi to hold.





Much of the credit for this creation should go to Sally as at times I was more the gofer and chief paint mixer.
Still working in miniature but not quite Bonsai!!!!
Ook, Ook,
