Dragon Tales - Unique Painted Medieval Nursery Wall Mural

Dragon Nursery Wall Mural goes all the way around room. (Back wall)

After consulting several medieval art books for dragon nursery wall ideas, we transferred the art we wanted to use for the baby's room from the book to normal printer paper using a light table. We then used a basic art projector to project the drawing of the dragon nursery wall mural in the desired size.

This had to be done in several sections. While projected on the wall we traced the outline with a black marker to give us a basic "paint by number" outline.

Next there were several weeks of filling in the outline. We used basic wall paint. We tried to keep the number of colors to a minimum and used inexpensive wall paint that we bought at the discount store in quart size containers.

Once the paint colors were painted on the baby's wall we found some wide tip paint markers (available at most art stores) and outlined and detailed the entire project.

Finally to protect the whole thing we clear coated the entire room with a latex polycrylic to provide more protection and "washability"

The curtains for the nursery windows were hand painted by my mother-in-law.

You can't quite get the full picture of the entire nursery with just one photograph, but if you would like to see more pictures of the dragon mural let me know!

Dragon Themed Nursery for Our Little One
by: Anonymous

In honor of our little water dragon we will be doing a dragon themed nursery! I'm very excited. Bedding, drapes, furniture will be all kept very neutral but we will accent with dragon art (gender appropriate) and some dragon figures. Debating if I want to go more medieval with it but still undecided but pretty definite we will do a dragon theme!

My husband and I settled on doing a dragon theme for our baby boy who will make his debut sometime in early May. I have searched and searched for ideas for a dragon based theme and I have come up empty. I would love to see more pictures of this nursery and know how you went about it. It is amazing! You can email me at lmcvet07 at gmail.com
Thanks!
