Painting a Wall Mural

My Wonderful Walls

A year later, we are still living in a house with nearly white walls, and sporadic decor throughout. We have started a mission this year..its time to admit we are settled in and decorate this place. Coming up on MomDot, I am going to be sharing things we are doing in our home to make it more “homey” and offering you ideas and some giveaways to follow along. The first idea I wanted to share with you are the amazing Kids Murals from My Wonderful Walls and how they transformed our playroom from drab to a show piece in less than a day.

My Wonderful Walls Tutorial

This is the room we started with, its the playroom (minus the toys)

003

Now with plain walls, we had to get a color up first before we started in on the work. We decided on a lilac purple. The walls kept soaking up the paint so it took about a gallon and a quart to get on two coats of paint. It took about 3 hours total.

Now the wall murals come in pieces with easy to peel backing and go right on the wall. They can re-peel and stick again, so you can use them over and over again. They also come with non stick paper so you can pack them up when your done and keep in case you move or want to add on! The only one we had trouble with was the tree. It was very large (although broken down in three pieces) and was a tad difficult to get smooth, which was understandable. Everything else popped right on with almost zero incident.

TIP: My Wonderful Walls also does Canvases, which are also great  baby wall art, nursery wall art, or kids wall art, so if you don’t have time to do the whole wall mural yourself, you can bring in the feel of a new room with painted personalized canvases instead! They arrive to you already painted ready to hang!

This is where we hit a hurdle. We didn’t let the paint on the wall dry long enough and when we peeled off the template, we took off some of our wet paint too. It wasn’t a big deal because we just touched it up, but a tip from us is to paint the walls one day, then do your mural the next. We were limited on time with Charlotte being gone, so we crammed it all in. As soon as the tree was over, the rest was a snap.

Pretty soon our room started to really transform:

Tips:

  • We brought in some glitter paint and made our flowers glittery on the tree at the end.
  • Save some of your solid wall paint color to do touch ups the next day

Time:

  • It took us including 2 coats on the wall in the main color about 6 hours, not working straight through (walking in and out of room, refilling paint, etc)
  • You only need the little bottles of the acrylic wall paint for most of the mural except the tree. We used an 8 oz bottle for two coats and still had some left over. We used the bottles from the crafting section at Walmart and they were approximately 99 cents-$1.81

Level:
They made it so easy, that anyone can do it. After you do a template or two, its very simple and goes quickly. Keep a wet rag handy because if you really mess it up, you just wipe off the paint and start over.

  4. They have many beautiful designs. I like the pretty “Lovely Lily with Butterflies” Canvas Flower Theme Wall Mural.
    Thank you for the nice giveaway.

  5. I would donate this to the ABA Therapy room at my son’s school. It is a small room with plain white walls and a grey rug. I know the kids would love the farm or transportation murel. It would make the room so much more inviting and a “happy place” to work with their therapist.

  6. Love the look of the flower theme mural kit, my daughter’s room definitely needs something!!

  7. All very cute, but I think a great choice for a playroom for either boys or girls would be the Jungle Safari Theme Murals!! Very cute!

  8. I love the monkey kids mural. My walls aren’t so wonderful, and I have been trying to improve them with paint…but they need something more.

  9. I would get the Flying Bird Wall Mural, it is so sweet, retro, and cheerful!

    Thanks for the giveaway! foxsquirrelrabbit at gmail dot com

  10. I love the “Sweet Songbird” Canvas Flower Theme Wall Mural. It’s adorable!

    orchestratenoise0726[at]yahoo[dot]com

  11. I would get the transportation theme. I really want to do a playroom for my boys.

  12. These are wonderful and I absolutely love what you did with your daughter’s room. I believe I’d buy two of the Canvas Flower Theme Wall Murals: Beautiful Bird Trio and Perching Peacock.

  13. These are adorable, I’d get the: Farm Theme Canvas Wall Art Decor for a Baby Nursery because Daddy is a farmer.

  14. I would get the Transportation mural or the Swinging Monkey canvas and the Elephant and Baby canvas-I can’t decide which theme my son would love more.

  15. I would get “Lovely Lily with Butterflies” Canvas Flower Theme Wall Mural and “Leaping Frog” Canvas Flower Theme Wall Mural

  16. How very cool. Somedays I wish I had drywall so I could paint. I love dragonflies and would have them literally everywhere if I could.

  17. I am pregnant with number two and we plan on doing a farm theme for the new baby so the farm would be PERFECT!!

    Thanks so much for the chance!

  18. I would love to have the Friendly Farm stencil kit. My niece loves to come to our farm, so we could give her her OWN farm.

  19. I like the flower theme because I could use it in my daughter’s room, then use just the butterflies to do the bathroom as well.

  20. Garden theme more than likely…for the girls room (I have 2 girls and 1 boy and one lil girl on the way)…the girls can even help me do this..how kool.

  21. We just moved into a new house so the kids can’t wait to decorate their rooms! The girls decorated their walls with Jonas Brothers and Twilight posters while the 8 year old twin boys don’t have anything. For my boys I’d get 2 rocket ships, each one with one a boy’s name. Thanks for the awesome giveaway!

  22. I would get the “Splendid Garden” Flower Theme Stencil Kit for my girls room, it’s really pretty and would look great when we redecorate their room this spring. Thanks so much for such a wonderful giveaway!

  23. I would either pick the Transportation Fascination Stencils or I would pick the Traffic Light and Fire Truck wall murals. It’s really hard to decide. I would probably go with the stencil if I had to pick one.

  24. Flower Garden Theme would be the mural I would use. I think a staple from that theme that I would love is the Birdhouse Wall Mural aspect. Lovely products ~ and awesome review ~ thank you!

  25. I think I’d go with the “Splendid Garden Theme” room mural stencil kit, because you get so much more than if you buy the individual canvases. I did like the “Delightful Daisies & Buzzing Bee” canvas, as well as the “Pretty Potted Tulips” canvas. I would pay the $5.00 extra on each canvas to have them personalized with my granddaughter’s names. Who knows, If I win, I may do both!

  26. Her room turned out awesome!!!!

    I almost think I’d go with the canvas paintings. I like the bee and daisies one and the flying bird trio, but I’d let my girls pick the ones they wanted.

  27. I love the Two-Panel “Sky’s the Limit” Airplane and Banner Canvas Transportation Wall Mural. Thanks! thebubbledies(at)gmail(dot)com

  28. Looks amazing!! I would definitely love either the farm or safari one myself, but Mason would totally have a bird for the transportation one so I would probably have to choose what he would like…you know because it is his room and all 😉

  29. The flower mural would be perfect for my daughter’s room! Thank you for this amazing opportunity – what a great site!!

  30. I would like the “Splendid Garden” Flower Theme Stencil/Mural. I think I could modify it (through colors) to fit the Classic Pooh theme we have in Rowan’s room. The walls are off white, so the only decoration is the stuffed animals and pictures. She would be over the moon if I did this in her room!

  31. I would choose the Flower Theme kit…..we painted my son’s room blue, and had a Froggy Tales theme. Now we’re expecting a girl and they’re going to have to share that room until we can move to a bigger house. I have been trying to think of a way to stencil a picket fence, to detract from the room being SO blue. And that kit has the picket fence stencil! So it’d be PERFECT!

  32. The one that would work best in our house is the flower mural that you used – with 2 girls that want flowers on their walls, it would be great!

    The transportation is cute too though, I will be telling my SIL about that one for her new little boy’s room!

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  33. I would get the Three-Panel “Whimsical Tree” Canvas Flower Theme Wall Mural for my daughters room, it would go perfectly, and since we rent I could take it with us when we move!

  34. First thing I would have to choose the motorcycle(because Zach says he wants the bicycle pointing at the motorcycle). Then for the second one I am at a toss up yet…maybe another transportation or maybe a girly one for my nieghbors girls room or I love the mouse and tulip one…kennedy’s room is really decorated so I just am not sure yet.

  35. I think it is fantastic what My Wonderful Walls is doing for Bloggers give. And your play room looks great. I would like the transportation theme for my boy’s room.

  36. I can’t believe you painted that! I thought you were going to say they were all vinyl stickers or something like that. Awesome job!

    I like the Hollyhock and Birdhouse canvases. And the tree. And the peacock.

    Okay, so they’re all cute!

  37. These are Terrific, I really love the Farm Mural, I would probably buy the Giraffe Canvas, I love all the Safari ones.
    Thanks for a great giveaway.

  38. Oh I love your room, it looks amazing! Your little girl must be in HEAVEN!

    I would definitely also do the flower theme mural, i love that i get to pick the colors and customize it!

  39. That turned out SO cute Trisha! I’d love to win gift certificate so I could get the “Splendid Garden” Flower Theme Stencil Kit for my daughter’s room.

  40. I would choose the two canvases. Our daughters’ room is yellow, brown and pink so I think the tulip and mouse canvas and the lily and butterflies one would be great.

  41. This would be awesome for me. I love the Friendly farm sencil set. I have looking for new ideas for our kitchen, with a country theme I could use this for it. After of course I do my grandsons new big boy bedroom. He just turned 2 and mommy is expecting so they decided it was time to let him have his own room. This would make it such a fun place for him to escape.

  42. Oh wow! It’s beautiful. I wish they had Dinosaurs, that would be so great for my boys. But since they don’t I would have to choose the transportation theme. It’s SO cute!!

    I’ve added their link to my sidebar! 🙂 Happy to spread the word.

    I wish we could paint. But we’re in base housing and if you paint, you have to re-paint the walls white before you leave.

    you can get canvases instead of the mural!

    Wow, what an amazing transformation. You said it’s her play room but I see a bed in there, is it also her bedroom? What a lucky girl. I checked their site and would probably choose the farm theme. How adorable, makes anyone an artist!

    no, its her old bed, we just use it to put the stuffed animals now

  45. While I can’t do this in our apartment for the girls, I think this would be amazing for my little brothers! The Car Wall Mural would be awesome for what my mom has done with their room so far!

    You guys did an awesome job!

  46. Oh wow, beautiful!! Great job.
