We love the feedback that we get from our DIY customers...
After about 10 hours, I have one large room finished. And it looks amazing! Think I’m finally getting the knack for how to load the tool with just enough paint - not too much and not too little. It’s amazing and turned out great!
My husband looked at the kit and was totally expecting a “Pinterest Fail”, but after I’d finished painting he was pleasantly surprised and actually suggested other rooms to paint. It looks stunning and not like a DIY project at all.
We took the bed out of the room to make it easier to paint and when I finished, the kids insisted on pitching their tent in the room so they could “sleep under the stars”. We may not get our bedroom back until I finish their rooms.
I can't wait for my son to see this. It's his old room (he's 21 and out of the house now but he's visiting me in July) and this starry sky may just keep him here!
Hi Jeff just wanted to let you know I finished the mural!!! (complete with a shooting star) Yay for me!!! I will see the end result tonight and I have no doubt that this kit was probably the best money we've ever spent on something for our home, honestly. So I thank you, I appreciate you so much, I will definitely recommend you to anyone. Thank you thank you thank you
I felt a little like Michelangelo painting the Sistine Chapel. I don't know why I was so afraid to get started, but once I did, I couldn't believe how well thought out your kit is. Thank you for making it.
The kit is super easy and I'm amazed with how realistic it looks on just my first try. Kudos to you, and thanks for making this kit available for people like us.
The carpet was finished up last night, thus completing the basement after 13 years!
The kids were bouncing off the walls more than they do on Christmas morning and were so surprised with audible "Oooohs!" and "Ahhhs!" when I turned out the lights and they saw the night sky for the first time!!
They slept in the room and had a blast.
I just wanted to let you know that I finished the mural and it’s is absolutely amazing and beautiful. I am so impressed by it and there is nothing more I could ask for.
My parents and friends laid in my room for over an hour listening to music. My dad also fell asleep in about 30 seconds.
I just wanted to tell you thank you so much and I appreciate everything.
The only thing is you said it may help with insomnia, but it has gotten me less sleep because I stare up at the beautiful sky ever night for 30 minutes before going to sleep
Thanks again very much
How can I ever thank you for the truly wonderful DIY star kit that you have created? I am dumbfounded at the quality mural my husband and I just painted. We ordered your kit on a whim, not really expecting much. Well, were we ever wrong. We just finished painting a work of art and we only have you to thank. In the words of my husband, “Wow!”
Thank you so much!
I just reviewed the kit after opening it, and it’s pretty cool how you made up the kit. The stencils are a great size, and packaged really well. I’m really looking forward to painting with this kit. Thanks!
I just finished painting our master bedroom with your DIY, stencil painting kit. I will say that without the stencils, I’m 100% certain the outcome would have sucked. I’ve free-handed a little in my little girls room just playing around, so I know first hand what a sucky job I would have done. Having the proper spacing and natural looking grouping makes it realistic, and the stencils make this easy.
Never in my wildest dreams would I have ever thought that I could pull off a ceiling mural like I just painted. Never! Thank you!
Just last weekend, the kids, my husband and I all gathered in my son’s room to paint his ceiling mural. We had a BLAST. Everyone pitched in and helped in one way or another and we had a great weekend painting together.
Well, let me tell you. Your stencil may not have looked like much, but it turned out to be way more than we’d ever expected. The mural that those sheets of paper turned out were unbelievable! Seriously, the night sky that we painted was beyond amazing and all we could do, once we finished, was sit there in awe.
We'd told our three kids that they could each pick something nice to have done in their rooms. One of my son’s room was the first room that we did something “special” to and he wanted the night sky on his ceiling, so we used your DIY kit. And guess what? Both my other son and my daughter want the night sky painted in their room too. So, your stencil just saved us a boat load of money since we can just use it again in their rooms. Sure, we need another jar of paint, but that’s a small price to pay for what we will produce with it.
My husband wasn't a believer when I wanted to paint a star ceiling myself so I painted a guest room first. I couldn't believe that my skeptic husband now wants to paint a mural in our master bedroom too? All I can say is thank you, thank you, thank you. The value that we got from only one mural was way more than we paid, but after we paint two more bedrooms, plus our master bedroom, we are in your debt.
I love having people over to see my theater, and the cherry on top… my night sky mural that I painted myself. Nobody can believe that I painted it. And, after a few minutes of total darkness, people say things like: “Gosh, there are thousands of stars!” “They’re twinkling…how can they be twinkling?” The tone of the commentary suggests my friends were really enjoying the illusion and could barely believe what they were seeing.
Well, why shouldn’t others react in that way…truth is, I reacted the same way on first seeing the finished mural. Even beyond the initial exposure, though, the night sky simulation continues to be cool and fun. The sensory illusion of a canopy of stars above you is captivating each time you renew the experience.
I’ve gotta say that this is the 1st time I have ever seen this effect period. I have friends who had someone, a “professional” come in and paint their ceiling for them, which I thought was kind of nice. But after seeing what your DIY stencil helped me to do, I am speechless. I am amazed at how beautiful it can look when I have no artistic talents. You DIY kit is very nicely done. Thank you! Jason
The kit, and the results that I am getting thus far, are amazing to my hubby and me.
You are making me look very good for my hubby. He is quite impressed with the mural I am painting.
I spent about 13 hours, total, using your DIY stencil … one full night, starting at 9PM, and then a few hours the next evening. My kids absolutely love it!!!
Within few seconds of letting my kids see the mural, my six year old found me in the dark, gave me a big hug and said, “Daddy, if you ever get fired… don’t stop doing this kind of stuff” My 9 year old was instantly lost in the space and fell asleep within 3 minutes.
A Big thank you, Jeff!!!
I'm so excited about finishing my first night sky star ceiling.
I love that the paint glows a more natural shade instead of your typical glow in the dark yellow.
I've been laying in my bed each night and smiling up at my ceiling before I fall asleep.
I can't wait to show my family and friends.
Thank you again - the kit was easy to use, the instructions were clear, and the results are fantastic.

Jeff, I want to tell you now that my fingers were crossed from the time that I bit the bullet and ordered your DIY night sky painting kit, until I finished painting the mural. I can now say that that was all in vain. Holy cow did you ever hit it out of the park with this kit. From my wife, my two children and myself, please accept our sincere thank you for such an amazing product. I know you must hear that a lot, but we just had to tell you ourselves.
Before I sign off I just have to tell you what happened when we brought the kids in to see the mural that my wife and I painted. We have two daughters, ages 9 and 12. I charged up the stars while my wife went and got the girls to come and see the mural. She had them close their eyes and then walked them into the room and sat them on the bed. With the room totally dark, we told them to open their eyes. My 9 year old screamed with joy, but my 12 year old was quiet. I was worried that she didn’t like it, so I asked her if there was something wrong. She just slid over next to me and put her arms around my neck, and that’s when I heard her sobbing. I asked her what was wrong? In a muffled tone, she said, “Nothing, Daddy. This is just so real and I can’t believe that you and mom painted it for us.”
I guess that, in this case, thank you isn’t nearly enough.
I just wanted to write a note to tell you how much I appreciate you now offering your Night Sky Mural kits for those that aren’t able to have the work professionally done by you. I have done extensive research with all the other star kits on the market beforehand, and what you offer is FAR superior to theirs. From the detailed instructions that teach you how to achieve that lifelike 3D look, to the customer service you offered if I had any questions along the way. To me having a great product is extremely important, but equally important is the customer service. It is clear that your goal isn’t just to sell these kits; it’s to have people be successful and have a gorgeous night sky.
The mural I just completed was for my son’s room and he had no idea what to expect, in fact none of the family did. I think that in their minds I was just going to paint some “cheesy” glow in the dark stars on the ceiling. Well, this mural is anything but that, and their reactions were all the proof that I needed.
I kept “peeking eyes” away from this project and I made the family wait until the reveal. That night for the reveal, my son lay down on his bed and waited for me to tell him to open his eyes. After having to wait a few days, the anticipation was almost too much for him. He waited. Finally I told him to open his eyes.
These are his exact words… “Dad this is so much better than anything I’d hoped for, I never thought it would look so real”. “It’s like you took the ceiling off of my room”. “I love this so much, it feels just like I am up North at the Cabin”.
Anybody that has had that experience of seeing that gorgeous and clear, starlit, night sky that you can only get by going far, far away from any city lights knows what he meant, and that was all I needed to hear to know that I’d done a good job and I owe it all to you Jeff.
Every night since then, the whole family crowds onto my son’s bed and we just stare at our Night Sky. The way they seem to twinkle just blows our minds. I swear it looks so real that my kids are waiting to see a shooting star.
Looking back, now, makes me laugh. When I first told my wife that I wanted to do this, she questioned if this was appropriate for a 13 year old’s room. She thought it might be more appropriate for a 5 or 6 year old. Well, she now says that she would be ok with me doing a night sky in every room in the house.
We are all blown away here because I am by no means an artist, but after using your Night Sky Mural kit, one would sure think I was. Your kit is so much more than just rolling paint over a stencil, but just about as easy. Thanks a million, Jeff! This kit was worth every penny.
Now on to the next room!!!
