When we moved into our new house, one of the first projects that we undertook was to put together a nursery for our first baby that would be arriving in only a few months. We decided to go forest theme. The biggest part of this was a large wall mural that was composed of tree silhouettes. Here is a quick tutorial on how we made it.
Here are the materials that you need for this project:
Paint: You will need three colors of paint. You need a white paint, a light colored paint and a dark colored paint
Primer: I prefer to use a separate primer rather than using the paint and primer in one combination.
Brushes: You will need a variety of brushes (and probably rollers). You will do most of the painting with regular brushes. But you will also need an old beat up nasty brush for rough stippling.
Painter's Tape: I highly recommend using FrogTape for this project. It is the best at blocking paint and preventing it from seeping under the edges. You can also use some regular painter's tape to help cut cost.
