Well, I do wonder what will happen when she gets older. 

Will I get tired of the mural faster than she will and be ready to paint over it before she is ready to see it go?

Possibly.

Or, will she "grow up too fast," and want something more mature, forcing me to paint over the vibrant colors as my tears fall into buckets somber-toned paint!

Love it!!! You did an amazing job!

 I'm going to be painting a wall mural soon so I've been asking around, what type of paint did you use and did you seal it after?

I used regular wall paint.  The hardware stores sell "samples" that are half-pint-sized in satin finish.  I bought red, blue, purple, black, and green in that size. 

I bought a larger can (can't remember what size) of yellow because I knew I'd use a lot of it in blending. 

I bought a gallon of the white and peach colors, but I ended up with about a half of a can of each left over!  Seems a little paint goes a long way. 

Halfway through I did end up buying one more sample can of green because I ran out and one more of red because my daughter accidentally spilled my can! 

I didn't seal it with anything.  It's pretty durable . . . we've already had a few incidents that required me to scrub!  Seems, when your toddler sees you painting her wall for a year, she reasons it's okay for her to paint on the wall, too!
