Use A Projector to Make a Mural in a Child's Room

contest winner icon

Run out of ideas to decorate your child's room? Here's my tip. Find out what is their favorite show or book and paint a mural on the wall in their room. Super easy.

Buy a inexpensive projector from Michaels ($75 dollars) and project their favorite picture on the wall. Trace the outline of the picture, detailing everything that you want to paint. You don't have to be experienced painter either, it's like color by number. After you traced the image on the wall, paint with acrylic paints. Simple and original.

We have Star Wars, Thomas the Train, Barnyard animals and Spongebob Squarepants. Great details can be done in one day. You'll have the most original bedroom in the neighborhood!

Nice idea, but I don't think $75.00 as really inexpensive. Sorry. But, cheaper than hiring a pro to paint a mural.

I bought my little projector on Ebay for $20. I'm glad you submitted this tip because I forgot I had it LOL

Projectors can usually be rented for much less.

Kerry, what a great idea! Don't have young children, but do have an 84 year old house to play with. In my case, as I will have a lot to do, taking more time, purchase will be more cost effective. I can't wait to begin "painting" murals on bedroom, hall, dining, kitchen walls, doors, ceilings. Well, maybe not the ceiling. The beauty of it is I can scan family pics, projecting them onto the walls as well. WOW! You have just made my day. BTW - I am from Giberalter Island - oh, so long ago. One of the Bertwistle girls.
