Painting a mural in the home

Nov 5, 2009

Lately, I've been thinking about painting a mural in my home.  Seems exciting and daunting at the same time.  I went online to check out mural designs, and this is what I found.


I love the bold graphic of this mural.  It kinda reminds me of some wall decals I've been eyeing, like the Pine Tree from Ferm Living.



I've noticed that silhouettes are pretty popular nowadays.  A mural like this one by Lynne Rutter would be sweet in the girls' play area.

This chalk drawing by Sol Lewitt is pretty stunning.  I've been wanting to use chalkboard paint on a wall in my home, but I'm not sure if I could pull something like this off.  It gives me some ideas, however.

You could do this -- besides, you can erase it!

That's true! I'm actually thinking of creating a design or image on chalkboard with paint. That way, the girls (and visitors!) can add to it with chalk.

Great blog. I too was an art teacher and now make a living as a professional artist.
