1st Place Winner

Joyce Phillips - Oviedo, Florida

Large Noah's Ark 

Joyce wins $250 or a FREE Custom Mural ($400 value)

"My daughter wanted a Noah's Ark mural for her baby's nursery, and she did not just want a removable sticker applied to the wall.  She wanted all four walls painted to look like a scene out of a story book!  When I came across Elephants on the Wall, I knew this would satisfy her vision and make her happy. My husband, daughter, son-in-law, and I hung the mural sections and tracing paper on the wall and meticulously traced every line. Then we purchased a multitude of latex paint colors in sample-size containers and set to work painting. It was a tremendous labor of love, but the results were well worth it. The nursery is so gorgeous and unique, and we would never have been able to achieve our goal without Elephants on the Walls wonderful products.  What a fabulously helpful idea you came up with. My daughter jokingly says that she will never paint over her son's walls so he will have to live with them until he grows up and moves out or they sell the house!  Maybe he can pass the room down to a younger sibling sometime in the future!"

Tanora Polk Spring Hill,TN 

High Flyer Wall Mural

"I wanted to do a vintage airplane theme in my boys' room, and this airplane was just what I needed. The mural was very easy to install. My husband taped it on the wall and I traced it within an hour. I decided not to use the clouds, since my boys are a little older: the propeller was the icing on the top. I've ordered 6 or 7 different murals from this site."

Super City Wall Mural

"We loved the elephants on the wall mural. I am not a DIY crafty person AT ALLso I was nervous to see how it would come out.  Much to my surprise, I was amazed at how easy it was and how good it came out! I have received so many compliments on my son's wall!"

Tanora Polk - Spring Hill, TN 

"I created a hair salon in my basement for my girls and I to enjoy. I knew right off that I wanted the colors to be black and yellow with a touch of purple. I also wanted to create a statement piece on my wall. Of course, I knew to checkout ElephantsontheWall first, and I was glad I did. I found the Jessica mural in the same colors as my salon! It took me a few hours to trace the mural, and half a day to paint it. I also love that the murals are reversible. This site has always met my needs. Thanks!"

Large Jungle Stories

"I have received many compliments on my Jungle Story bedroom.  I give all the credit to Elephants on the Wall.  Even if you have no artistic ability, you can paint a beautiful mural.  Just trace the pattern and paint by the numbers.  It's that easy!  Thank you, Elephants on the Wall, for helping me create a room that my granddaughters love."

Rachael Bell - Gastonia, NC

"This mural was painted for my three year old son who loves all things dinosaurs. He has enjoyed falling asleep each night since I completed it under his Mommy dinosaur. I enjoyed painting this for him. I had to get it done in bits and pieces during nap time each day. I changed a few of the colors like the spots to blue because it is his favorite color. This mural is perfect for him and we enjoy it."

Brandi Rogers -  Kennard, TX

Silhouette Swing

"I enjoyed painting this mural on my youngest daughter's wall. I added the butterflies and keep her cowgirl hats hanging on the wall, so I'll have a place for them.  This mural was very easy and I love the silhouette style. It doesn't detract from other aspects of the room and it's not too "busy". This mural will be age appropriate for several years. I am very proud of the way this room turned out. Thank you."

The Menagerie of Doorhuggers

"I am so excited about this project for one of the pediatricians who is a participant of Reach Out & Read.

Dr. Richard Bennet cares for inner city kids to help establish the importance of a medical home. He in turn offers each patient a new book that is appropriate to their age level. Not only is he promoting the importance of literacy, but he can assess where the child is developmentally based upon their handling of the book.

We are sprucing up his office by painting the walls and murals. We will then donate the books for them to pass out to the patients. It’s a win win!!!"
