Imagine living in a life-size lego house! If your child is loves Legos, then this mural is for them. This week I was fortunate to paint a mural for a young boy named Jack who’s passion at a very young age was Legos. I have never seen someone so incredibly enthusiastic about Legos before. It was my pleasure to bring the plain walls of his room to life with a very special Lego mural designed by him.
Jack’s favorite Lego police set was the centerpiece of the mural. The focal point of the mural was painted on the wall opposite his bed with the intention that every morning he could wake up and see the mural that he art directed. Bright colored legos are stacked high throughout the room. The Legos were color-matched from his new comforter and sheet set.
Laying Out the Lego mural Design
Even though Jack’s tall bookcase (below) would be covering most of this stack I still painted the legos tall in case the furniture was rearranged down the road. Taping off each block was time consuming but ensures a clean crisp edge. I used my favorite art and painter tape Scotch 3M for delicate surfaces. This tape is a bit more expensive than other tapes but the performance and quality of the taped line makes all the difference. It also comes in varying widths. I use this on all my faux finish and decorative paint jobs like the popular How to Paint Chevron stripes.
All he needs is a few accessories from the new Lego store located in Eastview Mall and he’s all set. The lego mural is all finished and ready to be enjoyed for the next few year. The Lego police set is Jacks favorite and he’s sure to add to his collection
. Enjoy your room Jack!
