This is my son's mural and the beginning point of my mural business. Check me out at www.acoloraffair.com
The week of my honeymoon (July of 2008), my husband and I spent most of our time working around the house (and yes, he owes me a honeymoon). We painted the kids' bedrooms and decorated all that we could. This includes my ten year old son's room. He wanted a soccer ball on his wall with his name on it and begged me to paint it for him.
So I sat down at my table and drew and drew until I got that soccer ball down right. Then I went up and painted my son's mural; after many experiments and errors later, he had a
custom mural. I had so much fun painting that soccer mural and decorating his room that I thought I could do this for a living! And that's how the mural business took off. I took
pictures of the mural and placed an advertisement on www.craigslist.com. I said “Custom Murals for Sale” and “Let’s talk about what you would like to see in that special space” … and people started emailing me!
And now you know the history … stayed tuned for the present … so I can have a future!
I started with that sports mural for my son and now, 13 months later, I have painted over 74 murals and I have met some really great people in the process.
