Forest Wall Mural - Bedroom Makeover

Over the weekend we had some free time and decided to do something that we had been talking about for a while now: paint a mural on our bedroom wall! If you've been reading this blog for a little while you know that we love doing wall murals! They are just so wonderfully fun to do, and I think they look really amazing too.

Our bedroom was one of the least done rooms in the house, we just honestly don't spend much time in there. It was never a priority, but as the rest of the house got more and more complete the lack of things done in the bedroom felt out of balance. At first we wanted to do something like this one since it was so similar to what we see out at the mountain house, but after some consideration we settled on a rolling forest scene that is reminiscent of our mountain views in West Virginia as well. We already had green paint for the great green hall disaster of 2015, which made deciding easier haha.

We used the other colors we used throughout the house to mix the apple green color a bit lighter and a bit darker, so it goes well with the rest of our home. If you are ever looking for big containers to mix lots of paint in I highly recommend inexpensive 1/2 gallon mason jars, they work perfectly and can keep any left over paint pretty nicely too. Once our paints were mixed we broke out the projector and projected the forest landscape Will put together on our bedroom wall and started to paint away.
It's kind of crazy just how much more inviting our bedroom is with this mural. I love going to bed at night looking at it and waking up to it in the morning, it's a little piece of the mountain house in Arizona. I don't know, maybe we will paint a desert landscape in our bedroom on the mountain, hehe. What have you guys done to make a room more inviting?

Also this might be the best photo I've ever taken of Sylvester. He is acting like he is none too impressed with our new wall, haha, but I like to think he really loves it.
