Yep, the baby isn't even here yet and I've already become that kind of blogger... so here it is. My how-to on our nursery mountain mural.
Through Eyes Like Mine book cover as a guide.
I started with a sketch, just two lines: the mountain line and the tree line. Then, I used the same paint we have on several of our living room walls (Behr's Sandstone Cliffs) for the first coat. Of course, it needed two coats, but even this didn't take too long. I just had to be careful along the edges.
The next day, I used the grey that's below our bar (Behr's Granite Boulder) for the tree part. Again, it needed two coats.
Overall, it took about six hours and I'm convinced anyone who has the time and patience can paint a mural like this.
