Fairy Wall Stencils for Playroom Mural in Maine
Amanda who has one adorable daughter and is expecting number two in January loves arts and crafts and considers herself somewhat artistically inclined. Enough so that when she found out her baby due in January is a girl; she decided she would paint a fairy themed wall mural for her two year old, Greta and her little sister to be. Amanda says she likes whimsical themes and wanted to create a space for her girls to grow and play in together and that they could use as a little hideout as they got older.
This Maine mom chose our Fanciful Fairies Wall Mural Stencils over wall stickers because of her older walls. She wasn’t sure if wall stickers would stick to the uneven surface (for our blog readers: our stickers generally stick to most textured walls) and she also wanted the chance to be more creative. Painting her own wall mural allowed Amanda the chance to mix her own colors and take the instructions shown in our “how to paint a hill” portion of the Fanciful Fairies video on the site and kick it up a notch by using a gradient on the hills with three different colors. The room took her about one to two weeks with breaks to complete. Her husband added a blackboard and bookshelf that he made himself to the room to finish it off. This room definitely looks like a place where children can read books and play games for hours on end on a rainy day but be surrounded by light and love!
Amanda says she feels pretty proud of her mural and had a lot of fun creating the look. She really likes the boy fairy jumping up the tulips and loves how the hibiscus turned out with the gradients. She is no stranger to stenciling, having purchased our Paws Park Animal Themed Mural Kit for her veterinary office. One great thing about our wall stencil kits is that our customers try one, see how easy it is to create their own mural and then they want to create another one! We definitely try to make every parent feel like an artist with our wall mural kits.
Thanks Amanda and family for sharing your pictures and thoughts with us! We hope that Greta and her baby sister will love this room for many years to come.
