Some Wall Mural Basics.

There are lots of pre-pasted wall murals and strippable wall decals on the market now. They're great- inexpensive and easy to apply. But if you want something a bit more creative, something uniquely your own, or something that perfectly matches some special item in the room, you might want to think about picking up a paint brush and trying your hand at painting your own wall mural. The following article gives some suggestions on how to start.

An Introduction to Home Wall Murals

by Steve Valentino

Wall murals are a creative way to decorate any room. Don't be intimated. It is possible to paint a superb wall mural even if you feel like you are not an artist.

Wall murals look great in childrens' rooms, the kitchen, the bathroom, the family room, or just about anywhere you want to personalize a cold, plain wall. Plan carefully, have patience, and you are sure to be rewarded. You can even practice first on a wall not many people will see, like in the laundry room or the basement.

You can decorate a wall while practicing and increasing your confidence. Have fun picking your image pattern. You can either draw it yourself or pick a favorite picture from a childrens book, art book, or greeting card--anything really!

If you want a more elaborate wall mural, you can pick images from different sources, like a border from a childrens' book around a scene from a child's birthday card. Be creative with your design. Garden murals filled with flowers, ivy, baskets and butterflies are an easy way to brighten a kitchenette. Paint faux brick, tile, or marble to dress up an entryway. An ocean scene with fish, a beach, and palm trees can add whimsy to a bathroom. Paint a scene from a favorite childrens' book to welcome a newborn. Or paint a baseball themed wall mural to make a home office seem more playful.

You can also use words in your mural. Wrap inspiring poetry around your dresser to help you start your day happily. Remind your children how much you love them with kind words by their bed, or even paint a playful reminder by their toy box to put their toys. Remember, you are making the house yours. Take chances to find something you love. And if you get tired of it, you can always paint over it.
