Best Beach Murals Wall Art, Stickers and Decor for the Baby's Nursery
It’s funny but once summer is over beach murals seem to still be popular. I suppose memories of family vacation spots is something that we treasure long after the pictures that were taken are buried in a chest or stuck in a box. Beach theme murals for baby’s room are colorful, fun and there are ways that you can do it yourself.
Stenciling Ideas for Beach Wall Murals
An easy (and cheap) way to paint your beach wall art on the nursery walls is with stencils. You might say that you don’t have any idea on how to paint beach wall murals. Well, you are in luck because most mural kits come with all the painting supplies and instructions that you will need to successfully complete this wall painting technique. Stenciling has come a long way from the repetitive patterns that we once used in the place of wallpaper borders.
Laser cut stencils that layer one design on top of the other can give wonderful realistic 3D results. After you stencil your large beach wall murals to decorate the walls in the baby’s beach theme nursery you can use smaller motifs like sea creatures, crabs or a few beach toys to do some creative painting techniques and artwork in an adjoining bathroom. You can also use small designs from your beach murals to convert plain white painted baby furniture into fabulously trendy beach theme accessories. Every ocean theme nursery should have beach murals no matter how small!
Project the Beach Mural With an Overhead Projector
If you are skilled with a paint brush you can draw off your designs to paint the beach scene free hand or you can use a projector to project the scenery that you want to use on the walls to use as a guide.
WALLPAPER YOUR BEACH MURALS
If you just don’t have time to spend choosing paint colors and designs for beach murals, the wallpaper websites should be your next stop. There are vinyl, pre-pasted and often re-useable beach murals, wall stickers and nursery wallies that you can have on your nursery walls in quick and easy steps. There are patterns and designs that lean towards different varieties of ocean theme activities such as
Nautical themes with primary colors
- Yachting, sailboat or boating
- Surfing themes
- Hula Girl themes,Hawaiian Tiki Hut or Tropical Island Themes
- Tropical fish - Underwater Murals
- Pirate murals
For those of you with a unique sense of humor, there are funny beach scene murals that will make you and your friends laugh. Or you might prefer beach murals displaying a late evening sunset at the beach in shades of rose pink, royal blue and gold. Such relaxing scenery might be just right for a peaceful, tranquil baby’s bedroom where baby can sleep.
Once you have your beach theme murals on the walls with whatever scenes you think are best, consider using accessories to make the mural come to life in a three dimensional way. You can position these motifs and objects in strategic places within your beach murals to make them pop with personality:
- Beach toys
- Buoys, flags and rope
- Sand buckets and shovels
- Fish and sea creatures
- Flip Flops
REMOVABLE VINYL BEACH WALL STICKERS, DECALS AND APPLIQUES
A common mistake that many make when looking for the best beach wall scenes is to cover an entire wall in a small room where a focal point would be better. Pre-pasted full wall wallpaper murals is not the most inexpensive or the easiest way to create a display of beach art on your walls. That distinction must be given to removable beach theme vinyl wall art decals and stickers. There is no other option that is as forgiving nor as versatile as these cheap, trendy stickers that will give you all the sun, sand, sea creatures and beach toys you could ever need.
HIRE A PROFESSIONAL
My last suggestion would be the most expensive, but then again it might be the very best. Hire a professional artist to paint your mural from photographs that you took during your family vacation. Before signing a contract, ask to see the painter's gallery with examples his artwork. Get prices up front and then stand back and watch them paint whimsical beach scenes that will thrill your kids.
