Well. Well. When one kiddo gets a room makeover, then you probably know what’s coming next. Room makeover for his brother. 🙂 We made a super fun big boy room ( I mean it’s really GOOD!) for my son a few months ago, and of course, I planned to redo my little man’s room at some point as well. When I discovered the new Minted Wall Murals, I fell in love with all the beautiful, chic designs they had in their collection, and I let my little P pick out his favorite mural for his room makeover.
It was not mommy’s choice.
I wanted him to LOVE his new room, and I wanted HIM to pick his favorite! And he sure did, in a blink of an eye!
His choice was the LOS ANGELES landscape design from Kelly Witmer. P loved this fun design so much that he did not even want to look further. We ordered it right away, and it was at my doorstep within a few days.
Here is a background of P’s room… It was a little left alone, and this room really needed some TLC!
The chalk wall we painted a few years ago worked for a long time, but as my son was getting older, he cared for that chalk wall less, and less over time.
Steps I took to apply the Minted wall murals:
- I prepared the walls! I could have painted the chalk wall, but I didn’t. It worked out perfectly, even though our design had some white areas. So if you have a dark wall, you will be fine without painting your wall. If you have time to paint it then do it!
- I cleaned the surface with a clean rag.
- We laid out our design on the floor to make sure we apply them in the right order.
- The murals come in rolls, and the rolls have a sticky back.
We hung the panels by starting applying them from the ceiling. It was super easy to apply all the rolls ( our from was 11.75″x 8.25″). I used a flattening tool to squeeze out bubbles, but overall it was a piece of cake to install this gorgeous murall!
Of course, I had to turn on my DIY switch, and I tackled a few other easy projects in the room to achieve the warm California style that I imagined for my little man after picking out this chic LA style mural.
I added a dramatic WOOD SLAT CEILING to compliment the large mural, and I also DIYed a few picture frames for the photos I took of my son (wearing his palm tree shirt!! -tutorials will follow for the frames!). Plus I also made a cool macrame chandelier for his room just for FUN! 🙂
Little P was super happy for his new design. And so did I!:-)
I am absolutely stoked to see this fantastic room makeover, you guys! I did not purchase any extra furniture – we just changed the look of the wall!
I had the bed, the chair, the nightstand ..literally everything! It’s incredible what a simple, but dramatic wall design can do to any forgotten space.
Here are some of the other DIY’s I tackled in this room:
This room went from Blah to Beautiful in a short weekend ( including all those other projects!)
