Leafy Wardrobe Mural

About three months ago I decided I was sick of my boring grey wardrobe doors.

So I decided a mural would be a fun way to jazz it up and grabbing a pencil I started scribbling leaf shapes on these doors.

Then I filled in the background using the same paint as the walls.

Then came green colours on the leaves.

It was at this point that I started to feel as though this just wasn’t working.

And it stayed just like this for three months.

Finally, I decided to finish it off with some white outlines and leaf detailing.

I’m still not sure about it, but at least it’s done. I may well paint over it sometime, as I am just not feeling it.

What do you think? Success or failure?

    Amazing!! I love what you’ve done here, absolutely LOVE! Seeing the progress pics is wonderful, I love seeing the design ideas coming together and developing. I’m curious – were the doors painted wood, or are they the melamine stuff (like kitchen cupboard doors- that’s what my (boring cream color) wardrobe doors are) What kind of paint did you use?

      Thank you so much gorgeous girl! The doors are chipboard, but I have painted over laminate doors before, you can buy a primer for that!
      The paint used here was a combination oh basic house (wall) paint and acrylic artist’s paint .
