I didn't follow a pattern... just sort of winged it (baaa dummmm dummmm chiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiing).

Hope you find it fun and silly.

You can't see it, but at the end of the ties, I made lil wishbones.

I used Bernat baby yarn so it's super-soft...

I chose to not make it pink like the others... so it's like a cooked chicken.  More because pink didn't really work for this guy.

I just used scotch tape...

but unfortunately, it's really humid here (Austin, TX) and the paper started peeling off the walls Sad

I'm so sad-- it looked sooooooo good for a few months there.

I would suggest that if someone was going to do this at a place they owned that they use decoupage or modge podge.

I agree-- yours is 100 x's more cozy and inviting!  It must be so nice to have your own little retreat!  I really like the lighting that you did... and those pillows look soooo perfect! 

You did a beautiful job.

I'm going to try to figure out if there are any corners in my apartment that I can repurpose now Wink


I went searching for the round ikea bed and while I found it pictured and discussed here
It's only mentioned on the IKEA Canada site now Sad http://www.ikea.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/ProductDisplay?storeId=3&langId=-15&catalogId=10103&productId=73860

I wonder if they are discontinuing it? 

I don't want a round bed, but a little $180 wedge for a reading nook sounds awesome!

I had been looking for ways to add color to my institutional white walls without having to repaint at moveout time, when I found Dithmer's awesome room https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=151134.0

I went to Hobby Lobby and found that books of scrapboooking paper were on sale - 50% off.  So, I was able to get 300 sheets for $10.  Whoot whoot!
Because I didn't have the variety that DithMer had on hand... and I was determined to get started... I decided to make a quilt of a checker pattern - solids and patterns.  Each square would have at least one color of all of the squares that it touched.
Here's a close up of the quilt:

Here is a wide shot of the wall:

and here it is from the front:

The lamp and small table were also from Hobby Lobby - 50% off.  I love  love LOVE the sales at that store.  The papasan was from a thrift store for $15... I bought a new cushion for it, though.

So, once I had my wall done, this green couch started too look a little out of place. 

I went over to Hancock Fabrics and got some colors that coordinated with the wall. I got some pale blue and some really silky pink flowered fabric.  Realizing how much it would cost to get fabric to cover the entire couch, I stopped over at Bed Bath and Beyond.
There I found a slipcover on clearance for $25. 
I recovered the pillows using the fabric.  The two brown pillows with blue stripes I bought earlier. 
Pardon the wrinkles... I took the picture before I realized that the slipcover needed to be ironed.  I'm also planning on using a staple gun to secure it down.

So now my room is much prettier. The only problem is that my scrapbook paper is buckling a bit.  I used double-sided tape.  Per Dithmer's suggestion, I'm doing to do the rolling of the tape thing instead.
Wish me luck.

As a friend of mine said, "Holy Color, Batman"

I think you are right - it's probably just crappy double-sided tape (and I thought I was saving time...HAH) Tongue

I will re-work it.

I'm about to post mine up.... check it out.... and thanks for the fabulous idea.

You rock, you genius, you!

Hey - I totally stole your awesome idea and did an accent wall in a similar way (only, I made mine checkered...).  But, I don't know if it's the humidity or what, but my pages are buckling Sad

Any ideas on how to get them to lie flat? I used several rolls of double-sided scotch tape that doesn't seem to be holding.   I thought about using contact paper - but I don't want to mess up my paper.

Help Please?
