Hand-Painted Wallpaper

Who needs to fork out 100s of bucks on fancy schmancy wallpaper when you can make your own? All you need is some paint samples, a brush, and a piece of scrap wood to draw vertical lines along the wall. From there, you can create your own unique designs or geometric patterns, and voilà! Your very own customized wallpaper.
