If walls could talk, what would yours say about you and your personal style? It doesn’t always take a full-fledged artist to create a masterpiece. Let your inner artist out and create a one-of-a-kind mural that is uniquely you. Be fluid and free or methodical and mapped out... the wall is yours!

Project: Bright Graphic Office Mural
By channeling her inner artist, some FrogTape and a handful of colorful paint samples Charlotte, from At Charlotte's House, brought a dull office wall to life cultivating creativity and uniqueness in her space.View Project »
- Sketch out a design or search for inspiration online before tackling your full size mural. It’s always good to have a sample board on hand to practice your painting skills before taking it to the wall, especially if you’re a newbie!
- Use a tape measure, painter’s tape, and a pencil or chalk to plan your mural out on the wall. This is great for stripes or plaid patterns. You can also easily “project” an image directly to your wall and trace it out if it’s more detailed.
- Always remember, if you don’t love it the first time... don’t sweat it. You can simply
paint right over it and start again! Blank slate!
- It’s totally ok to paint outside the lines! Allow your mural to carry on to the ceiling or over to the adjoining walls.
