I am in my first trimester but hubby and I already know we want to do camo seeing how the military was a big part of his life. But my question is can anyone give me any tips on how to paint the bedroom walls camo? Any advice will be appreciated. Thank you.

That sounds tricky! Stencils maybe?? Just using painter's tape seems like a pain.

Maybe paint the whole room a lighter color and then go back with darker colors. You could cut wiggly shapes out of the center of large cardboard pieces and paint inside of them.

That too.

See and I have not been able to find any stencils for it. I have been looking for a week. and painters tape is going to make it look funny seeing how it will not make curves like camo. If I did a lighter color it would be almost a tan brown.

Yeah I would just draw the shapes on with a pencil like the link says, and then paint. Maybe look at a pic of some camo print to help draw it right. Sounds like fun, good luck.

ETA: google images camo walls, there are some really cute pictures to give you inspiration. Or you can use wallpaper or a border... def post a pic when you're done!

Oh my hubby has more than enough camo to go around lol. He has both military and hunting camo. My biggest fear is not getting it exactly right.

I would be afraid of it not looking exactly right when I was done too. If you are worried about it not looking right, you could always find a camouflage design you like and use a grid system to enlarge it...I'll try to explain this the best I can (we did this in art class in school). Say your wall is 9 foot tall by 10 foot wide. Lightly draw 1foot by 1 foot squares on the wall. Then find a smaller camo pattern (paper, material, etc) you like that is approximately 9 inches by 10 inches and draw 1 inch by 1 inch squares on it. Start in 1 square on the wall, and using the corresponding square on the pattern draw the lines that are in that square. Here is a site that might be able to explain it a little better than I can. The Grid Method: An Easy Step-by-Step Instructional Guide for Transferring or Enlarging Images. HTH! Definitely post pictures when you are done! Would love to see the finished product!

ETA: I found this while I was looking around on the internet for camo painting techniques and thought it was pretty cool! Love how they just overlapped the butterfly shapes and painted between the lines!
