Reader Chris, a real estate agent, constantly sees vintage wall murals in the time capsule homes he sells, and he has been wishing for his own for a while. So, like many other readers, he jumped on all the Thibaut wall murals on closeout for $50 each when we published that story a year ago. Chris recently had his nautical “Ships Haven” mural installed. Wow — it looks wonderful!
I am in real estate and I see these awesome murals in the time capsule houses that come to market. You know, the ones preserved by neglect. I always wish I could pull them off the wall and take them home with me, which of course is not possible.
I was online one day searching and searching for wall murals and came across Retro Renovation. I saw that Thibaut was clearing out their stock of these vintage murals, and this was all they had left. I was hoping for one of the more rural scenes, but actually I am glad I got the nautical scene — I love it!
I got very lucky that I didn’t have to repaint my dining room. The ship in the mural is basically the same color as the room so it worked out great!
Chris, that wallpaper mural really makes your dining room feel special, and it seems to me that it fits the space perfectly. Thanks so much for sharing your photos with us.
