Several years ago I decided that I wanted the entire large wall of my new apartment bedroom to be covered in cork.  I found packs of four 12" x 12" cork panels for a few dollars at the hardware store (the same tiles are at least $10.99 around here now!) and had at it.  A year later when I moved, the cork went into storage as I waited for inspiration to strike.

I just moved in with my boyfriend and our living room needed some art.  I pulled out the tiles and painted them with silhouettes of things we like or find meaningful.  


Row 1 (top left):  Enterprise-D, bf's kitty, Fallout vault, floppy disk
Row 2:  Warhammer 40K Blood Ravens emblem, names in (Stargate) Ancient, King of the Cosmos from Katamari, and bf's design
Row 3:  Pea shooters from Plants vs. Zombies taking out the smoker from Left 4 Dead, a cracker, Glassjaw logo, IL-2 (plane)
Row 4:  Rally car, space shuttle launch, nuclear plant, Trent Reznor


On the kitchen floor, finalizing layout.

Thanks!

The flag is actually a logo used by the band Glassjaw, though that might be lost since I changed the colors!  According to the band's wikipedida page, it's based on the Puerto Rican flag, but it could also be Cuban.  Smiley
