|Not awesome mural. Just slapped on the|
wall screaming Olive Garden Restaurant.
I know people pay a lot for painted murals, and with a talented artist they are beautiful, but I've seen so many done so badly that I cringe when I hear the word, "mural." I'm not a mural fan from the stand point of slapping up that ocean view or that Tuscan countryside out a faux window and having someone tell me it's their theme. A picture is not a theme. Either make the mural count for something or get rid of it. In other words, take it further people! Tuscans don't sit in their living rooms decorated al la Rooms To Go with murals of the "countryside" on their walls. They have beautiful rustic beams in their ceilings, wonderful old world tile, awesome rustic plaster walls. In comparison a 3'x5' mural just seems a bit silly.
|Awesome mural. |
It makes a statement.
The cost to be in a Tuscan room? Regular old 2x4s are under $3 apiece, stain, under $25, texture under $50, pale creamy paint for the walls under $60. So essentially for about $200, you could have Tuscany instead of looking at a little $200 mural that means nothing to the room. A woman with a set of tools who knows how to use them is a dangerous thing. Now imagine what you could do if you wanted a Spanish Plaza and had a tile saw. Awesome.
