1st Place Winner

Kim Villanti - Portland, OR

Large Pirate Pete's Treasure Map
Kim gets $250 or a FREE Custom Mural ($400 value)
"My husband and I knew that we wanted a fun, unique nursery and when we found out we were having a boy, we decided on a pirate theme. We scoured the internet for décor ideas and discovered Elephants on the Wall. We instantly fell in love with the Pirate Pete’s Treasure Map mural and knew it had to be the centerpiece of the room.
 What made this experience so unique was our family helped with the mural! Parents and siblings alike were tracing and painting. It’s so easy to do that all skill levels could help. It made it so special to be able to say everyone had a hand in making the mural for our son.
The mural came out perfectly and it really made the room. We’ve gotten so many compliments, but now all my friends think I can paint anything- which is not the slightest bit true."

Tiffany gets a $75 Elephants on the Wall Gift Certificate
"My 4 year old daughter aspires to be a ballerina when she grows up so naturally the "Dancers Mural" was a perfect fit for her room.  The mural was so easy to trace and paint. I decided to paint the ballerinas as silhouettes, the tutu's of their dresses to match the accent wall and the bedding, and the top of the dresses to match her bed. The ribbons are purple to honor her request of having her favorite colors pink and purple in the mural.  The Elephants on the Wall "Dancers Mural" made her room come together beautifully! Thank you!!"

"Safari Wall Mural - A Family Bonding Experience
After years of trying to conceive my husband and I learned we were pregnant July of 2015! Our families were ecstatic and wanted to help with getting the nursery ready for baby Chandra. Since we decided to keep the gender a surprise we went with a neutral color scheme for the nursery. Unsure of how to adorn the room we started looking at neutral colors and different patterns but were underwhelmed with the gender neutral options. When we found the ‘Elephants on the Wall’ we were very excited to see all the fun, classic, and gender neutral options. We selected the large safari mural to cover the two primary walls in the nursery. 
Once the prints were delivered we set a date in December so our family could help us. Over a weekend we taped up the sheets, traced the patterns, and painted the walls. We shared meals, had great conversations, and enjoyed each other's company over a mutual activity. 
We welcomed Leela Chandra on March 23rd 2016. We added splashes of lavender and a chandelier for our daughter. She enjoys seeing all the safari animals on her wall and I am reminded of how lucky I am to have such amazing family and a beautiful baby girl."

 Large Silhouette Safari Wall Mural

"I painted the mural for my son's nursery and then we kept the mural when we transitioned to his "big boy" safari theme room. I used custom mixed metallic blue paint and very light gray for the mural.  We made the jeep bed for him to match the safari theme.

I painted the mural when I was 30-36 weeks pregnant and it came out beautifully."

Cheryl Straub - St. Marys, PA 

Bamboo Silhouette Wall Mural

"On the one wall I used Gloss paint for the bamboo in the same color as the background matte.  On the other wall I experimented with using satin AND gloss to highlight.  I also added EXTRA leaves.  The room has a very nice/gentle Zen vibe.  I also have backlit the one dresser mirror with LED lights that change color with a remote that again changes the color and feel of the room. The gloss paint reflects nicely yet almost disappears when the lights are out. 

I had a lot of fun doing this and am now deciding what to do in my daughters ‘guest’ room. Thanks!"
