Reporter, Julie Slack, tells the tale of my sister and I painting a backyard mural in our aunt’s garden on a cinderblock garage.  We spend several weekends creating the masterpiece which includes their beloved dogs Benny and Bella among flowers.

Garden Mural with Sunflowers

Garden Mural, hand-painted by Adrienne of About Murals in Hamilton, ON, includes sunflowers on a blue background.

The mural had to include sunflowers because, as children, we grew the tall flowers with our aunts only to cut one down and walk it from the east end of the city to the west end for a family “who can grow the tallest sunflower” competition.

How About Murals Got its Start

Our aunts were so pleased with the backyard mural, they called the Hamilton Mountain News to feature it in their newspaper.  Once the article was released, I received numerous calls requesting hand-painted murals in homes in the local area.  About Murals was born from this fun project surrounded by my family.

Shop Garden Wallpaper

Many years later, I began selling wallpaper murals that are easy to hang, removable, eco-friendly and ship free within Canada and the contiguous USA.  These are some of the popular garden designs.
