I can barely contain my excitement for today’s blog post. We are Creating a DIY Large-Scale Wall Mural that can grace any room in your home.
Before we embark on the journey of creation, let me give you a sneak peek of the finished product. Imagine a massive wall mural in three distinct panels, hanging proudly in my home.
The visual impact is awe-inspiring, and I can’t wait to share how you can achieve the same effect.
Now, let’s head outdoors, and I’ll take you through the step-by-step process of bringing this gorgeous wall panel look to life in your own home.
Applying the Mural to your MDF
First, let’s gather the supplies. I sourced my mural from an Etsy store, and I highly recommend it for quality and affordability. Once it arrived, I measured each panel meticulously. To complement the mural, I opted for half-inch MDF for its lighter weight. We trimmed the MDF sheets to match the mural’s dimensions and added one by threes for support. Here’s what you’ll need:
Now, let’s get to work!
Repeat these steps until the mural is completely applied to the board.
With your beautifully adorned MDF panels ready, it’s time to hang them on the wall. The added one-by-threes on the back provide both support and a place to attach D-rings for hanging. These panels are weighty, so you might need a helping hand. Here’s the process:
This DIY project turned out to be a game-changer for my great room. The large-scale mural brings vibrancy and character to the space, and I couldn’t be happier. If you’re hesitant about such a bold application, remember, that you can customize the size to suit your preferences.
I hope you enjoyed this DIY journey as much as I did. Let me know in the comments if you’re inspired to try it yourself or if you have any questions about the process.
Remember, good design is for everyone. Create a home that inspires you, have fun with your DIY projects, and fall in love with where you live—one room at a time.
