Oliver Laurins Nautical themed toddler bedroom

This is our baby boys nautical themed bedroom. front and back walls are upholstered with pine slats from top to bottom and pine trim was used throughout to tie it together. Boat bed was custom made out of plywood and has a working bow light and dash lights. Mural was hand painted from top to bottom with the help of a projector. All work and photos done by Matt Laurin, Olivers father.

I took some photos from a real navigation chart of our area, then I got them into photoshop and created this digital image. First I painted the wall blue then used a projector to project the image i created on the wall and painted it all by hand from there. after the map, ships, compass, and all the words had two coats I taped off all the straight lines and the boarder and paint them in. It was very time consuming but turned out great. There are some available online that are similar that just hang up but I wanted it to be more personal and fit the full wall.
