How to Hang a Mural on Your Wall


Congratulations! You’ve made the bold move of having a wallpaper mural put up in your living room. You’re excited to see how this stunning upgrade affects the overall design of the area. You have made a surprising decision in selecting a photo mural of Organ Pipe State Park, depicting an incredible desert scene with cacti, mountains, and a magnificent cloud-filled sky.

Your mural would look fabulous in the living room. The wall you picked is the first thing people see when they walk in. The fact that it lacks any usable power outlets is a bonus. You have already bought the mural and are curious about how much expert installation will set you back. You want to cut costs. Excellent. Then call a pal over, put in some time on a weekend afternoon, and get ready to get your hands dirty. You can watch the game even as you’re putting up the mural yourself. Your mural may be hung in no time, just like conventional wallpaper.

Unroll the wallpaper and look at each panel before you start your project. Check that everything is there and in working order. Please don’t just “wing it” if you want to get good outcomes. Keep this article handy as a quick reference to the manufacturer’s instructions.

Make sure the wall in the living room is smooth and clean before hanging anything on it. If there are any cracks or holes in the wall, repair them. To clean the wall, use warm, soapy water. Then, using a sponge or cloth, rinse with cool, clean water. Wait until the wall is arid to the touch.

The first step in hanging your mural is finding the precise location where you want to put the first panel. A plumb bob can draw a perfectly straight line with chalk.

Choose the initial screen. This panel needs to go on the left side. The board should be laid out with the printed side down on a flat, clean surface. Wallpaper paste should now be evenly spread along the entire reverse side. The next step is to gently roll the panel inside out and then leave it alone for a few minutes. Applying it to the wall will help keep it from curling.

The wallpaper panel can be applied to the wall, which will stay for the next few minutes. Align the panel’s left edge with the plumb bob’s straight chalk line. Unroll it carefully, making sure it stays in line.

When the panel is in place, use a damp sponge or finishing brush to push any air bubbles out from under it carefully. Use soft, sweeping motions to deflate the air without damaging the painting. Press firmly on its edges to ensure the panel sticks to the wall.

Select the panel that will fit flush next to the first one you put in. The panels overlap slightly with one another. This will make it simpler and more accurate to line up the mural panels.

Simply move on to the next panel of the mural and do the same thing. When you’ve finished hanging the mural, please gently wipe it down with a damp sponge or cloth. This ensures that the wallpaper paste is applied evenly. The dripping paste is much easier to clean up this way.

You must now let the mural air dry entirely after removing any traces of paste from the printed surface. Once the glue has cured, you should inspect the seams to ensure they are sealed. If more paste is needed, apply it to secure any exposed seams.

You have no idea. Thanks to your mural wallpaper, your living room now looks like a picturesque scene from Organ Pipe State Park. Isn’t it simple?
