Passionate About Paint: A Moon And Stars Wall Painting

Here at Karen’s Company, we are passionate about our work. Leaving our customers over-the-top happy is our highest priority. We work alongside our clients, turning their painting ideas into stunning reality, resulting in personalized, unique spaces that speak to their unique individuality.

Simply put, “our main goal is to make people as happy as humanly possible that they picked us to do their work for them.”

Recently Cheryl, who does many of our bids and estimates for us, went to the Lafayette, CO home of a new client. She was looking to have some wall painting done in her bedroom. Upon arrival the customer showed Cheryl in, chatting about doing a few walls in white, and the others in purple. Then she confided that she thought it would be amazing if we could paint the moon and constellations on the walls.

She was very interested in astronomy and would love to see that passion portrayed in her bedroom.

That’s when we took her idea and ran with it, planning out how we could bring the constellations to life using our high quality painting tools and talented, creative painters. We decided to use a grid to get the stars aligned. We sketched out the constellations and then divided the wall into a grid as well.

Next we used the planning grid to divide up the wall and painted each star one of several, different sized circle templates. To keep the interior design of the room cohesive, we used mainly the purple and white paint colors already being used in the room.

Our client wanted not only the stars fleshed out in wall paint but the lines which form each constellation as well. To achieve this, we first tried to draw the lines out in pencil, but soon realized that this was not the best technique. We then used two pieces of painter’s tape to connect each star and painted in the thin line between them.

The moon was the most advanced part of the project. We painted it by hand, going off a picture of the moon we found online. Mixing paint colors carefully and adding in a little gray wall paint as well, we eventually achieved the stunning results you see in the pictures.

Our client was thrilled with the end results.


This is only one example of the faux finishes and custom wall treatments we have done for our satisfied customers. One of our secrets here at Karen’s is our team. We only hire painters who are passionate about what they do and who want to grow in their skills, using their creative insight to leave our customers with stunning spaces. We enjoy the creative process and the challenge of customizing our client’s homes.
