some time ago I posted this http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=299095.0 project - three panels I hung above my bed. For the living room we're re-doing (photos coming soon because I'm really proud, but I want to do some more things before taking more pics) we decided on a single panel this time, in a different style - black and white to tie with the other prints we're putting up, and we chose a bamboo design to give an oriental feeling as there are some Chinese prints in the mix...

I'm really curious to see it up on the wall!

This idea is great and I think I'm going to start designing some myself. What kind of paint did you use?

Thanks for the comments! It was fairly quick to make, as I wanted something of really unfussy... I like it!
The paint... hmm... the white base is a matte leftover from painting the doors of the living room (I have a bit of trouble translating the name of the types of paint into English... this one was a wood/metal paint quite fast drying, not smelly, no need to use paint remover to clean the brushes, water was enough... some kind of acrylic paint I think), and the grey and  black were the smallest pots of whaterver we could find, another kind of acrylic/enamel... argh I hate these translations...
