Front End Murals

I was wondering what others have done with the dead space on the inside of the front cap. Since we are redoing ours with a Margaritaville/Tropical theme, we thought of having the inside cap painted with an ocean/beach scene. Curious as to whether others have done this or what other unique things have been done. Care to share any thoughts or pictures. Thanks!

Bob

I have a fantasy about painting a scale version of the Sistine Chapel on the whole ceiling.

Nice Lumatic! The thought crossed my mind to do something as well while looking at how much open space we have in our rear bedroom. We are covering over the speaker holes also so nothing will be above the bed except the light. Maybe I can get a disco ball...

We use a small disco ball with a stationery spot light on it...the ball does not turn and the lights from it are real cool as they span thru the house.

I have seen some neat painted end caps in trailers... but I don't have any pictures. Here are some of out map "mural" in the bathroom area.... the wall was sticky from the contact paper when I removed it so I cut up a vintage atlas then shellacked over top of it.

I'd hoped we were talking about the frontend OUTSIDE. Got alot of dents there and thought of painting naked people across them so they (the dents) wouldn't be noticed.

I have had so much fun w/ fabric in our airstream. I have too much pattern going on already w/ upholstery and curtains- but am considering this idea for closet interior. Removable fabric wallpaper. Its temporary, cheap and fun!

Here is another idea- this one is busy- but great idea! You could use hibiscus leaves- whatever-

Tropical fabric is so easy to find.
