Let’s go over four different types of cacti to paint using chalk paint and my watercolor technique as I paint this cactus mural for a client’s nursery.

I used my Dixie Belle paint to create this wet brush technique. See for yourself and leave a comment telling me what you think! Which one is your fave???


This wall took less than four hours to paint this cactus mural and only required three colors of paint! Absolutely anyone could create this mural in their own home!

I kept it light and fun….using only a few colors….and even working in some finger painting in the process. I don’t always use brushes to paint….I often use spatulas and blades and even my fingers!

Visit the Neutral Cactus Wall Mural blog HERE to see the finished look.

If you have a friend who is having a baby, loves design and maybe is a DIYer at heart, please show them this DIY idea!!!

And this wall is a much less complicated finish than the Bold Boho Cactus mural that I also painted recently. Check it out HERE. Cactus nurseries are all the rage! lol.
