Makeover your child's room in a day- My Wonderful Walls Review and Giveaway!

Have you dreamed of having a colorful, fun, themed bedroom for your child?
Do you not have the finances to pay a professional artist to paint a custom wall mural?
Lack the talent to paint one yourself? I have the answer!

Let me introduce you to My Wonderful Walls. Created by graphic artist and industrial designer Michael Goins, My Wonderful Walls offers wall stencils and nursery art to transform your child's boring bedroom into a place of imagination and adventure ! You do not have to be an artist to paint beautiful wall murals for kids, nor break the bank to pay for it!

My experience:
I was excited when My Wonderful Walls contacted me about a review. I had recently talked with a friend who wanted to redo her son's room. She mentioned she wanted to paint a wall mural, but didn't think she could do it herself. I am fairly artsy and told her I would help out. Shortly after our conversation an email came from My Wonderful Walls! I thought of my friend right away. I had no need for my own children's rooms as we are wanting to sell our house. But this opportunity worked out perfect for my friend.

We picked the Jungle Safari Theme Stencil Kit along with the coordinating acrylic paint set for my review. Everything was shipped to me quickly and was well packaged. The stencil kit came with very helpful and thorough instructions as well as several foam paint brushes for completing the project. The paint kit came with an ample amount of paints perfect for creating the Jungle Safari room.

Here is the room before the transformation. Very dark and lot's of damage to the walls.

To prep the room for the wall stencils, my friend painted the walls and ceiling in a sky blue color. She then painted green hills all across the room. She also painted the closet doors which I thought really added a nice effect.

Before we got started we first taped stencils around the room to figure the desired layout. This was very helpful. I highly recommend taking the time to do this extra step. It will help you avoid cluttering the walls. It gives you a feel for the final design.

Once we got started, peeling and attaching the wall stencils to the wall was quite simple! You will need two sets of hands to attach the stencils evenly, so don't try and tackle this project alone.

The painting process went great! The stencils held tight and did not allow the paint to bleed whatsoever! I was very impressed by this. Removal of the stencils was a cinch as well. Obviously it was so easy we let the kids get in on this part!

Some of the stencils in this kit such as the Zebra and Giraffe require layering. This was actually a lot of fun and so simple!

Most of the animals in this kit only require 2 paint colors with the exception of a few. We added in grass elements ourselves and I hand painted all the animal eyes. The stencil kit does come with a special eye kit if you need it.

The Finished Room:




We were very impressed with the final results. In only 1 short day we transformed an ordinary boy's bedroom from blah to fabulous! The process was simple and minimal cost was involved.

I love the Bugs and Blossoms Theme. I have used sponges to add some colorful cuteness to my daughter's room in a previous house, years ago.., does this count? Oddly enough, the sponges were shaped like... BUGS and BLOSSOMS! I guess my tastes haven't changed much over the years. :D

There are about three of their wall stencil kits that I really like. But I'm leaning slightly towards the Bugs and Blossoms theme. I've never painted a wall mural before, but I'd sure like to give it a try!

I love the The Splendid Garden Stencil Kit. It's funny because I painted basically the same things on my daughters walls. I never painted before in my life and am happy how they turned out, but it would have been nice to see this before I did, lol.
