Inspired by the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains in my home state of Virginia, I created a 5-paneled blue gradient mounting range with only two paint cans. Using just one rich shade of blue and mixing it with various amounts of white gave us a really lovely palette to work with.

You could use this same technique on a dresser with multiple drawers, painting each drawer a different shade, you could incorporate it on a wall with big, bold stripes would make a stunning statement, or forget the gradient aspect and transform your stairs using different colors.

I first tried a mountain mural on 2 sliding closet doors that have since fallen off their hinges and been discarded. You can see my attempt here, and read the written instructions for a slightly different approach in my paint guide for Venus Zine below.
