This cool retro Super Mario mural would look great in anyone’s bedroom, especially if you’re a Super Mario addict or a kid. To top things off, it’s actually nicely pixelated, which makes it even perfect.


Nathan Roberts recently completed this paint job for his son’s bedroom. He calls it the Retro Room Mural and like he supposes, we’re sure that it will appeal to geeks everywhere. Nathan says that he wanted to instill the geek in his son and I’m sure that it worked!

The process involved finding the right images, then compositing them on his computer. He found that 8-bit and 16-bit images worked best. Once he had the design, all he needed was an LCD projector. He projected the images onto the wall and then hand painted the mural. All in all, Nathan spent $30-50 and 15-20 hours on this project, and it looks pretty awesome.
