Hi Everyone!
So I have one teeny-tiny bathroom in my house that was in some desperate need of wall decorations.  I didn't want to hang anything, because I seriously think it would contribute to more claustrophobia when in the bathroom.  So, I painted a mural!  I took a clip art image, traced it onto graph paper, and then expanded the grid on my wall.  I was really surprised that I got the scaling correct and I was happy to see that the mural did indeed take the whole wall.  The thing is so big and my bathroom so small, you can't even get painting in your field of vision.  Here's some pics:

this is the top right

here's the bottom center with a lovely shot of my towel rack  Wink

Thanks for looking and, of course, let me know what you think!

Gorgeous mural!

I would love to do one myself, but I'm afraid that I would mess up.

You should go for it! The advantage of murals is you can paint over them if you mess up or change your mind.
