Here's a row of ceiling cupboards which were grey and boring and ugly. After some painting, printing and pasting, they became a teeny bit funkier.

Here's a little tutorial:
Paint the borders and trim.
Measure the size of the cupboard, estimate the amount of paper you need to cover one panel. Mine needed 6 each.
For the dots, I used rasterbator on an image of a gradient, to get the effect of the circles getting smaller and smaller.
Print out as many sheets as you need.
Cut out the white borders.
Glue the sheets onto the panels and cut off the excess. I used spray adhesive.
Then put a piece of sticky back plastic to protect the paper.
And you're done!

Thanks guys! They are really quite easy to make, you just have to be careful about the air bubbles.
