For my little sister's 15th birthday, we redid her room!  It used be be our room, before I moved out.

Before picture:  (These are our painting clothes, by the way.  Tongue)


My concept drawing:


After!


We stenciled the swirls using contact paper and it worked AMAZINGLY well...there were a few drips, but overall it was perfect!  For the white swirls on the wall, we actually stuck the outlines of the shapes up, painted them white, then stuck the insides up over the white, then painted the walls teal, right over the contact paper.  The sides of the cube were done using "Frog Tape" - I highly recommend it, well worth the few extra bucks over regular blue painters tape.



If you're curious about the size, the center of the flower is about 11 inches in diameter, the cube is 2.5 feet each side.



It turned out even better than I imagined!  I'd post some in-progress pix too, but I think this post is probably pic-heavy enough. Tongue  Maybe later.

What do you think?  Any questions?  Cheesy

That is pretty flippin' cool! Love the optical illusion...love the teal color, too. What a bold choice, and it paid off very well!

that is SO fantastic!  I want to make a 'feature' wall in my hallway, but am terrified to tackle it, but wow, you did an amazing job!

Thanks everyone!  She loves it.

SillySlippers - For bedding we're thinking of getting cheap comforters and appliqueing them with a fabric that matches the walls...we'll see!

TMLGirl - Go for it!  We were really surprised at how easy it was!
