1st Place Winner

Monika Vogelsinger - Manchester, England

"This is the first time in my life I've painted something so big. I was a little scared starting this project, that it will overwhelm me. But from the moment when I started to paint it was just a pleasure, just step by step to paint the next elements. During one of Sundays children joined me and they also painted. It was amazing looking at a few-year-olds (who are usually in constant motion) who stopped intently, held their brushes and painted with smiles on their faces. Painting this wall was a special time for our church and it brought us closer. And this is not the end - I intend to paint the next wall because it is a huge pleasure and ease, thanks to the available designs."

Crystal Cuci - Chesapeake, VA

Large Under Construction Paint-by-Number Mural

"I originally saw the Under Construction Mural on Pinterest and knew it was something that my son would love! I placed the order, and anxiously opened the box when it came in...then swallowed hard. I thought there is no way I can complete this on my own, especially with an almost 2 year old son, a full time job and a textured wall! So, it sat in my laundry room for 2 weeks, and I scoured at it as I walked past it daily. Finally, one day I decided to not just open the box, but take everything out and take it one step at a time. Michelangelo didn't paint the Sistine Chapel in one weekend, so why did I think I had to? Since my son is at the stage of copying everything we say and do, I didn't want him to see me painting the wall. So, I only painted at night after he went to bed or during nap time, and this turned out to be such a blessing! The first morning my son woke up and saw the patterns with trucks taped to the wall, he was so excited about his "big trucks." And the excitement only grew from there. Every morning, he ran into his playroom to see what had been added, and when he saw the excavator painted, he literally did a happy dance. Seeing the joy on his face every morning was the only motivation I needed. It took me a while, but I am so glad it did because we were able to celebrate like Christmas morning every day. Now, when anyone comes to visit, the first thing he does is take them to his playroom to show them his trucks and dirt, and everyone is amazed at the vibrancy and details. I can't thank you enough for making this possible!"

Rebeca Reyes - Corpus Christi, TX

Noah's Ark Paint-by-Number Mural

“I’m one of the children’s coordinators at my church and decided to remodel the kids room. I started searching online for ideas of what to put on a blank wall for the children’s rooms and came upon Elephants on the Wall. I loved the idea and ordered my first mural. The animals on the ark was exactly what I was looking for. With the help of my brother, we traced the mural and worked hard for many hours for a few days. The little details took patience to do but it was all worth it at the end. The children love the new room and are always excited to come to church to learn and play! Thank you Elephants on the wall for this creative way to make a plain wall look beautiful!”

Anne-arie Aiello - Laurel, MD

Dancing Dinos Paint-by-Number Mural

"I wanted to decorate my 2 yo niece's room and suggested Castles, Princesses, maybe farm animals.....until I heard.....she likes Dinos.  PERFECT.  And even better, I was allowed to do do it any way I wanted. Here is the finished product. Happy, joyful Dinos who have been named DD, CC, and Cait after the 2 yo's cousins. So much fun to think about color schemes and shop for the paint.  The install took all of 2 days and everyone loves it....most importantly my niece. Thanks for a fun experience."

Robin Atkinson - Burnside, KY

Butterflies & Flowers Paint-by-Number Mural

"I would like to add that I had an existing mural on one wall.  I changed the colors in the new mural to coordinate with the colors in the existing mural.   This gave more flow to the Room.  My murals are in a very small cabin that is 12' wide by 24' long.  I plan on doing murals on all of the walls.  I call it my colorful cabin.  My sister came and saw it and she was just amazed at how beautiful and vibrant it was.  Sets the wall was 12' long and the mural was only 10' long I had to invent a way to add to that 2' of space.  If you look at the window you will see that above I added a portion of One section to the top of the window and a portion of the section to the bottom of the window.  In order to do this I had to cut the partition in half so that I could tape the sections to the wall.  Overall I am very pleased with my work and it will bring me joy for a long time as well as whoever gets this cabin when I'm gone.  I am 56 years old and am in retirement now and I find this as I wonderful hobby.   I must admit that my shoulder blades up near my neck get very sore from painting.  But it's well worth it.  I'm excited about painting the next mural. I finally finished my mural. It was quite a project I must admit.  I had to tweak it a little bit though in order to accommodate 12' of wall space instead of 10'."

Connie Risk - Cocoa Beach, FL

"OK! All done! Went ahead with the way originally drawn and I love it! I think it turned out beautifully! Thank you for a very good and attractive product! I painted in our very small beach front condo entry and it fits the place perfectly. I think the heavy texture on the wall added to the charm."
