The Big News is "Big Beach Builds" on DIY TV Featuring Nautical Chart Wallpaper

You read about us in Southern Living Magazine last fall. You saw our feature article in Country Living Magazine this summer. But we debuted on DIY TV in March on Season 1, Episode 4 of Big Beach Builds, and have been in some reruns since then. We have been quite busy with new clients who saw our work on the show.

In case you missed it, we'll recap it with some still pictures, courtesy of DIY TV and Marnie Oursler who is the star of Big Beach Builds.

The challenge was to cover a wall in the home of a sea captain who met his sweetheart on 4th Street in Bethany Beach decades ago and was fortunate enough to find a home for sale on that same street. But it needed Marnie Oursler to reconfigure the exterior and interior of their home to make it liveable. 

Marnie used a sponge to make sure the panels were adhering to the wall.

Once they opened and inspected the mural, Marnie brought in a paper hanger to help with the task of installing the mural.  The mural, seen on her DIY TV program, came in four panels with a one-inch overlap between panels.

After the first panel was plumbed, the second panel was added, making sure that the one-inch overlap matched exactly. The next step was to squeegee the panels, removing any bubbles. Finally, a double-cut on the seam was made, which matched the panels edge-to-edge. 

With the mural in place, Marnie added some finishing touches to the decorating.

Marnie then added some trim to the mural, which framed it nicely on the wall.

After the mural was installed, the next step was to do some decorating in anticipation of the captain and his sweetheart seeing the home for the first time since Marnie worked her magic.

 

His reaction was priceless!

"Would you look at the charts!"

The captain's smile said it all.  Marnie's crew even put flags where his grandfather lived and where he met his wife. 

But that's not where the story ends. Marnie has invited us back for Season two, and we will be doing a bathroom in her latest Big Beach Builds.  

Watch for it on Season two of Big Beach Builds! Stay tuned!

Spectacular!
