1st Place Winner

"Our grandson loves to visit the fire hall and always asks if he can go to work with his dad, so I asked Elephants on the Wall to bring the fire hall to him.  All I had envisioned they were able to bring to life; his name on the building, his dad's badge number on the front of the fire truck and the two boys (representing his younger brother and himself) pointing to the fire truck getting ready to go to a call.
It was an absolute pleasure to work with this company and nothing was too much trouble, even when I asked if the firepole could look like it came out of the ceiling.

Ahoy Ye Matey Wall Mural

"The whole process was just so easy to do and I think because of that it turned out great!  We had so much fun doing it, too. It really was a pleasure.  Everyone has commented that it looks like a professional job and I think that is thanks to your easy to use murals!  I will be using these again and again as we make our way through the rest of our home."

Large Jungle Story Wall Mural

"I was a bit skeptical at first since I am not artistic at all but WOW....I
can't believe how well the mural turned out. It took much longer than expected, but it was definitely worth the time.  I just sit in the nursery and enjoy looking at it.  I hope my babies enjoy it as much as me and my husband do.  I will definitely buy another mural from Elephants on the Wall when the time comes to update the

Beach Scene Wall Mural

"My wife and I had so much fun painting the mural on our wall in our back yard.  We added other figures to the mural to give the whole wall a beach feeling.  We have gotten so many compliments from our neighbors on how it has turned our back yard into a day at the beach."

Honorable Mention

Slytherin' Serpent Wall Mural

"This was painted in my 3 y/o son Rylan's room. He loves knights and dragons! My mother, grandmother, cousin and I painted this and it was amazing to watch it transform! We had a blast and it turned out amazing! Definitely my favorite room in the house!!  Thanks so much for this awesome mural!"


 The bedding is King Arthur from Disney!.


The twin sized bedding for this room is North Shore by PB Kids.  The window treatment is a grass skirt table decoration hot glued to a curtain rod.  Two colorful leis were cut and hot glued to the grass skirt.

Beach Umbrellaand Palm Tree & Surfboard  Wall Mural

"I loved how easy it was...

Thanks for helping me create a fun wall treatment for my daughter! She loves it!

Now my teenage son wants me to do a mural on his wall after seeing the finished mural in this bedroom!"


Honorable Mention

Earlene Sherman O Fallon, IL

High Flyer Wall Mural

"My  4 year old loves the red plane in his room!  Not a difficult project, but does take time as I did two coats of paint for opacity. I like that the mural allows for customization such as color choices (such as the shiny red on the plane) and using the template to create clouds throughout the top of the walls and along the windows.  I had a lot of fun working on it!”





Honorable Mention

Beth Ellis
Broxburn, West Lothian, Scotland, UK

The Buccaneer Wall Mural

"I painted your safari shilouette mural in our son's nursery a few years ago so when it came time for him to move into his big boy room I knew that one of your murals was the way forward.  The buccaneer mural is great fun and ideal for a toddler's room.  This mural took a lot longer than the safari one, but I hadn't really thought about the extra time that multiple colours, but the time it took is well worth it as it really makes for a brilliant little boys room.

All in all another real success and we are all delighted with the room - it's so nice to be able to produce something special and your murals make it very easy to achieve."


Honorable Mention

Nora Celaj          Thornwood, NY

Large Under Construction Wall Mural

"I love the murals from EOTW!  I really wanted a mural for my first child's room and was very pleased when I discovered EOTW! Ever since then everytime I was expecting my husband decided he would take on the task of painting the mural and with the easy to follow steps of the murals he got the MUCH EASIER! My son is only eight months old but he does stare at the bright colors of the trucks when he uses his jumper and I'm sure its only a matter of time before he starts talking about them."

Honorable Mention

Ana Parra
Orlando, FL

Rhino and Friends Wall Mural

"It was definitely fun to paint this mural. We play with our imagination and it was a moment between my husband and I where we experienced a lot of unity and relaxation. Consequently, we were sharing time as a couple which is important for us because sometimes we get so busy making a living that we forget to make a life.
We are very grateful. We highly recommend this mural."


Honorable Mention

Laura SmeltzerOrlando, FL

Large Giraffe Spots  Wall Mural

"When we found out we were expecting our first child we knew we wanted a special nursery. I am a huge Jack Hannah fan and wanted to do a wild animal theme and thought a giraffe theme would be nice. While researching online I stumbled across Elephants on the wall and the giraffe mural design. We were hesitant to order because we were afraid this would be difficult but we were surprised at how easy it was to apply the mural to wall."

We coordinated the room with bedding from Target which has horses, flowers, and a pink barn!



Honorable Mention

Amber Deal
Comanche, TX

Neigh..bors Wall Mural

"We converted my daughter's nursery into a "big girl" horsey room. She loves her grandpa's horse named Hollywood so we personalized the mural with the Hollywood's name. My daughter has a large window, so we painted the horse mural onto a canvas window shade allowing "Hollywood" and "Beauty" to greet her anytime the shade is down."
