Would anyone pay for this kind of thing?


Im considering setting up my own business painting kids bedrooms as something to do on the side of looking after my 2 boys..

Would anybody pay to have this done for their child's bedroom?
How much would you be happy paying?
Would you go for somebody whose work you liked the look of over somebody with qualifications? I did an alevel in art, and my fil is a professional painter and decorator with his own business if i ended up messing anybodies rooms up! However im not experienced in the sense of professional wall painting ect..
Ive had good responses from facebook however theyre friends so are a little biased..

More pictures in the post below..
Also the images are not the best quality as had to change them all to jpeg format as it keeps saying the files are too big..!

Er WOW! That is actually amazing

I wouldn't like to put a price on how much, would depend on how long it took, materials etc.. and I don't think qualifications would matter- if you could build up a good portfolio of work and references.

But you have serious talent, i'm sure there would be a LOT of people that would be willing to pay for that xx

The cat in the hat is amazing, I know plenty of people who have had proffesionals in to do this sort of thing, maybe have a look round facebook and find people who do it and see what they charge?

That is amazing work! I'd consider getting it done, unless it was too costly. I can't put a price on it though because I don't have a clue how much the paint etc would cost, but I definitely think you'd get a lot of custom!

WOW you are amazing! Very very talented!

Same as the girls, I would definitely pay for something like that, just not sure on a price.

Haha, please come paint my sons toy room and bedroom I would definitely pay for that artwork. I'd love a toy story one for his bedroom.

I think you'll definitely make money at it, set up a portfolio. People are going to be more bothered about seeing a gallery/images of your work set yourself up a Facebook page! X

What a fantastic talent you have. Certainly would pay for it. I also will say hospitals and businesses would to, like play areas in fast food places for kids and funland kinda places. Get out there and ask around I think you can make money.
