Ideas for wall murals.

You don’t have to be Michelangelo to create your own stunning and artistic wall murals.

Years ago, I worked briefly as an assistant to a curator in a museum. Chief amongst my responsibilities was assisting in the planning and creation of exhibits. I even got to curate, from start to finish, my own mini and temporary exhibits. Long story short, for one of these exhibits I had a friend paint a wall mural that was the highlight of the exhibit. Every since, I have been fascinated with wall murals and have wanted to paint one in my home.

Our home is much too small for the type of expansive wall mural that I am envisioning, but we are contemplating a move in the next year or two. Putting the cart before the horse (house), as is my style, I went looking for tips and inspiration on creating wall murals.

I found that there’s infinite possibilities for those who want to create wall murals in their homes and one does not need to be an experienced artist to paint an amazing mural.
