A Locker Room Mural
Are you looking for something a little different for a bedroom, closet or playroom? Do you have some sports fans in your home?
Well, here is our take on a locker room mural. For every child, parent, or sports fan there are different demands, desires, and expectations for their sports themed mural. The custom mural depicted below was taken from a job D’franco Painting & Wallpaper painted a few years ago. This is opposite the walls featured a few weeks ago that had a Chicago Cubs and Chicago Blackhawks mural of players and stadiums.
In trying to find something different and unique, the walls and space were again designed with two sports themes. The Cubs and Blackhawks.
The outer wall was designed with the Cubs locker room in mind. A wood grain technique was painted on the walls then lockers were created using some shading with an airbrush. To add a more realistic look to the locker room, jerseys and a chair were included. The door to the small room was designed to have a glass door to see through and view the other mural which depicts the Blackhawks locker room.
Hockey jerseys, skates, paint the back wall of the study room. A trip to the library resulted in finding past images of Blackhawks headlines from Chicago newspapers. This adds a bit more flair to the mural.
Once we had our news clippings, the next destination included a trip to the copy store to make reprints. Applying a wood grain paint to the mural wall captures the locker area and drawers beneath the lockers. Then adding pads, skates shirts, shoes completed the look. Using razor blades and wallpaper glue, a custom winning wallpaper border was created above the painted mural.
