A few months ago, my boyfriend bought a house and we started decorating.  While at home depot we learned glidden made paint in Villanova's colors so we decided to turn the basement into his sports man cave complete with villanova wildcat logo.  We both went there for undergrad and the wall seemed like a perfect location for a mural.  I started off with printing the image on project paper and shine it on the wall.  

Then I traced it and painted the navy outline.

I filled in all the other colors and touched up.

In the end, we were so happy with how it turned out.  I tried to condense the steps but if you want to read more, just go here http://dipez.wordpress.com/2011/05/26/jay-wright-approved/.  Hope you like it!

Very nice! I love using projectors for murals!

I could have freehanded it but the projector allowed me to draw it in an hour and have it accurate.  Best ebay purchase ever.
