Here is the room stripped of everything girly.
As you can see, it's really white and really boring.
My husband really didn't want to do anything with it. He said that a boy wouldn't care what his room looked like so we could just leave it like that. But to make me happy he agreed to paint it anyway.
After the paint dried and the crib was put back together, the next step was infusing the animal theme into the room.
We did this with the Jeep Breakout Smart Stick peel and stick mural from Murals Your Way.
My girls absolutely love our mural. The animals are adorable and it really does look like the jeep is breaking through our wall!
On top of that, our Mural is huge! It measures 4'x6' and is actually the smallest size available from the site.
With the mural being so large, I thought it was going to be really hard to put up. That wasn't the case at all. Installation was super easy and we were done after four simple steps
- Measure and mark your guidelines
- Peel off backing as you go, starting at the top left corner.
- Stick to the wall, and smooth out any bubbles or wrinkles.
- Trim excess material (if necessary.)
When we put a vinyl alphabet in my daughters room we had to hang up each letter separately, and put pressure on the letters to make sure they adhered correctly. The Smart Stick Mural was so much easier to hang! It really was just peel and stick.
Murals can come in various panels depending on the size and style you order, and each panel has to be hung separately. The Smart Stick style of Mural can be repositioned over 100 times, which makes lining up the panels a breeze. Even though we could have rehung the mural over and over again, I was very grateful that we got it lined up perfectly on the first try.
To Buy - Smart Stick Murals are a great way to create a focal wall in any room. They are available in ANY size from 4'x6' up and there are more than 7,000 on-file designs to choose from. The designs can be personalized or you can create a completely customized design from a photo. The Price is great also! I don't even want to think about how much a 4'x6' painting or canvas print would have cost me.
