I'm trying to encourage DD13 to paint a mural on her bedroom wall.

Definitely encourage!!


I used to paint murals :)


She can use the acrylic craft paints you can get at the craft store. They hold up well, and clean up is easy. Also, tell her to sketch her idea on paper first, then sketch lightly on the wall. (she can also use a grid system to enlarge)


Here are a few cool ideas:

We did a beach scene in ds's room when he was a toddler. We did clouds on the ceiling, a palm tree over his bed, a beach umbrella over the dresser and a sand border above the baseboard. We painted shells and crabs and stuff in the sand.


His bathroom had the sea painted on the wall with foam cut out fish on the walls. We put a shark in the shower.


Sorry don't have pics, but it was a great room.
