Having put off the backdrop for years I put my anxiety aside and jumped in with both feet. There was a lot of left over paint from house makeovers and the colour seemed OK, so why not. I gathered some paint brushes, and not the artist type mind you, some palette type knives and started putting paint on the wall. I didn't bother with detachable mural board, or whatever it's called, just used the back wall and ceiling as the blank canvas. The result was pleasing to my eye and others as well.
