That's really neat.  It looks great.

(I also did the same thing as a child)

Haha- I did that too- must be a "this child will become a Craftster" thing!  Grin

I think it's really beautiful, and I think the colors you used make it have a dreamy effect. I know I would sit and stare at it and daydream all the time.

I LOVED scribbling and colouring in the pieces when I was a kiddlin'.  Was the pin-striping easy to use?  Oh, and NICE JOB!

That's really cool, I love it.  I bet with the waterbed and dark wood furniture, it gives the room a cool, psychedelic, retro feel.

What a cool idea! It reminds me of those "how many fish do you see?" pages in coloring books. It makes me happy just looking at it too. I think when I have my own house, all of my rooms will be interesting with murals and stuff like this. I'm thinking also of doing a collaged wall.

Fantastic! I loved doing that as a kid too, but would never have thought to do a whole wall of it! I really do love the overflow onto the adjacent walls! Great job!

That's stunning!  I can't wait until we own our own place and can paint cool things on the walls...

Thank you everyone, it made my day to read all your comments! I'm so glad y'all like it! As for the question about the pin stripping it was a pain in the butt sometimes, but it wasn't to bad once I got the hang of it. I had to watch how much I pulled it because it stretched a lot. Also if you didn't press it down on the wall firmly when you first stuck it on it tended to fall off in a few days. But doing the pin stripping was waaaayyyy easier and more even than painting all the lines by hand  Tongue So far everything has help up great. If any of you do this same kind of wall please show me pics!! I would love that.
