- Find the image you want on your walls. If you have it as a physical print, you'll need to scan it, but if you have a digital image, you're already set to go.
- Copy the image to any program that lets you increase image size to full page (8 1/2 by 11 inches). If you're using Word, you can do this by right-clicking and changing the size.
- Print the image as usual, except use transparency paper in your printer. Make sure you are using the type of transparency that matches your printer--ink-jet for an ink printer, laser-safe for a laser printer.
- Place the image on the projector and point it so the image projects on the wall you want the image on.
- Adjust the magnification so that the image fits the size you desire.
- Trace the image onto the wall using a colored pencil. It's easiest to trace one side and then the other, since you will be blocking some of the light as you trace.
- Paint to match the colors of the original, or get creative and paint the image in funky colors. Be careful to use the same standards you would with regular painting: cover anything that paint might drop on, use the correct size brushes and so forth.
- Let dry, and enjoy your unique walls!
