We have a marvelous “DIY world map” from Ronda, shown us how to paint a giant map on a wall. Its very cool and neat and it would look great in your home. Let’s have a look at this great idea.
This is the finished product:
So what we need to create this map:
- A projector + a world image
- Painting tools (brush + color)
- Sponge for texture
You see, it is too easy. Large maps are expensive… maybe this map will rescue you 😀 . So how to do it?
First thing match the colors to bed-sheets. Get 2 colors. Base that matches everything and then one shade darker:
Next, use a projector and a still image:
Prep the wall by painting a fresh coat. Just for awesomeness.
Trace out the outline of the still image with a fine brush
Fill in the inside with a larger brush
Here is a shot of it mid way through
Here is just with the base coat.
I thought it looked pretty good just like this.
Then use a texture sponge to add the mountain ranges.
It helped that the wall was very textured to start with.
It looks really good at night.
Done! Now, you get a place to be inspired when you wake to everyday, for this special room. This makes me hope that my children will like to travel as much as I do. 😉
