After #wallsaucemakeover

Last month I wrote a before post about our mural makeover project with wallsauce showing how dull and uninspiring the playroom was.  Big boring magnolia walls lacking personality, well wallsauce certainly came to the rescue in that respect, the room has been transformed and the boys are very happy with the end result.

Hubbie found it easy to put up.  The instructions are quite comprehensive, letting you know what additional tools you might need (such as a spirit level and plumb line) and tips for a successful installation.  To achieve the best results they recommend two people work together to install the mural, hubbie is quite determined (or should I say stubborn!) and managed to do it on his own.

We had the textured self-adhesive which hubbie would vouch for as it meant no messing about with paste or water, just peel off the back and stick to the wall so that certainly made things almost effortless.  I think the extra £10/m2 is worth paying just to simplify the installation.

The boys were absolutely delighted with the end result.  It seems we always tend to gravitate towards the mural; it makes an exciting backdrop for any pictures we want to take.  Youngest blew out his birthday candles with Batman watching on.  The image intrigues the boys, they like the action captured in it with the bullet holes and the smashed up police cars.  They are in awe of Batman dominating the picture and it makes them keen to have adventures of their own.

Here is a little video with eldest highlighting why he likes the mural so much:



Eldest thought the mural would be the size of a regular poster, so it was a pleasant surprise when he saw the finished installation.  He was ready for action; he changed into his Batman costume and wanted to have an adventure.

You can really tell it was a captivating mural when my son’s friends are planning on moving in with us just to be near it!!!  I will be sending their parents the link to wallsauce instead…
