Select Photograph

Choose an image with people or objects that are easily recognizable from far away. Graphic shapes work best. Tip: Black-and-white images are a great choice because they'll work with any color scheme.

Have Image Printed

Drop image off at a local digital printing house; request that image be printed onto UV-resistant vinyl.

Prep Wall

Create a smooth wall surface by filling any nail or screw holes with spackle using a putty knife. Once dry, sand spackled areas with medium-grit sanding block. Pour wallpaper primer into pan liner, add roller cover to roller handle, dip in paint, then prime wall.
