Thanks everyone!

I don't know how easily they will come off after they've been on for a while (this is the first time I've done this), but they were very easy to reposition as I was putting them up.

Vinyl shelf lining was about $2.50 per roll, paint was about $3 per can.  Really the only big cost would be if you purchase some type of cutting tool.  I found something to cut those shapes at a craft store for about $15 (I think it was for cutting photo mats).

A set of 12 decals costs $37 at a certain online wall decal retailer.

That is such a great idea!  I have been wanting to do something like that in my craft room.  I just get stuck on what kind of knife to use.  Did you use an exacto knife?

These look great, but I'm confused about how they are attached to the wall. Are they held on by the loops of tape, or does vinyl shelf lining have adhesive on the back side with a protective layer that you peel off?

This is seriously cool!!! I'm definitely going to try this. If you take them off for some insane reason (because they're awesome), let us know how it goes!

Vinyl shelf lining just adheres to the surface of whatever you stick it to. And it should peel off very easily too. When I've taken it out of cabinet''s I've never had any residue. I've used it on a ceiling at my booth in the flea market. You can work real wonders with that stuff and it is also in dollar stores a lot. It doesn't matter if it has a print on it. You are going to be spray painting it anyhow, ya know?

BTW, Your idea was a great one. It looks GREAT! Sorry to go all chatty on your post!

Fashion is a form of ugliness so intolerable that we have to alter it every six months.
