Wall Mural

It has been a long time since I had the opportunity to paint directly on the wall, what with staying in rented houses and having to deal with irate house owners! But since we moved into our new home, my hands have been itching to dress up one of the walls. The TV room is small and so the accent wall has been painted a light blue and a beautiful silver framed mirror we found from an amazing shop on Commercial Street hung on the other wall.

I love the mirror, but somehow felt the wall looked too plain and due to space constraints, I did not want to add a console table beneath it. So I wondered why not wall decal option? Browsing through the decals available online, I decided I would rather paint it myself! I had some paint remaining from painting the wall, and imagined the same light blue would look great.

Here is the wall before the painting:
