Painting a wall mural

Here’s some painting inspiration for you.

Our master bathroom has been begging to be painted, just look…

Adding a mural to walls adds so much interest to a room.  This is a must see!I have had this ‘oops paint’ in my paint stash {everyone has a paint stash, right?}, so I decided to get in to it and paint over the lovely petal pink with a jewel tone Tiffany Blue.

I chalked it on the wall first making sure I got the look and dimensions right.

Filled it in with Modern Masters metallic ‘Champagne’ paint.

  1. Hi. Where did you find mother of pearl paint? and what is the brand name? Thanks.

    • Hi Kim, I used the Martha Stewart mother of pearl as I had it on hand. Modern Masters also makes a wonderful MOP paint. You can get the Martha Stewart paint from any craft store near you. The Modern Masters paint will be at a paint store most likely if they carry the brand. xo
