Free Idea

I have loved M.C. Esher ever since the fifth grade when I used to spend hours (when I was probably supposed to be studying something) staring at this piece in the Bellevue Library.

I have always wanted to do some sort of M.C. Esher inspired design and today I thought of a fun idea, again utilizing the ever available, always affordable, contact paper.
It would be SO easy! and for those of you who are not big on measuring, I think you could eyeball this one.

White contact paper on a chalkboard painted wall {bonus: you could write funny things the birds might be saying}

White walls could work with colored contact paper.

Or you could mix it up. If I hadn't just finished the chevron, I would totally be giving this one a shot. I think the whole wall behind my sofa would be cool.
Burt Reynolds thinks it's cool.
Burt Reynolds, I don't care if you have a mustache, you should not be smoking in my living room.
Here is a template. If you give it a shot, email me, I want to see!

Escher was a brilliant artist. "Drawing Hands" and "Relativity" are two of my favorite drawings.

when i was in middle school the escher exhibit came to my city (winston salem, nc) and i went to see it so many times! i was fascinated and probably also felt cool that i knew where all the cool drawings were and could boss my friends around.

Wow. You do really have a thing for the mustache, eh?! Love the ideas - esp. the mixed up wall medium. I like the way your ideas move around in your head and spit out in cool randomness. Keep 'em comin'!

This IS really cool! I must look into this contact paper - it must be available somewhere in the UK...

Oh I like this. Might work for one wall of a baby's room too! =)

Steph- I don't blog much anymore but I check yours about a post on shower curtains? I bought a plain white waffle shower curtain at target and I want to add some green and brown fabric from hancocks- ties at top? stripe at bottom? work some magic for us!

Burt Reynold's?? Hahahahahahaha!! Did you ever see Norm MacDonald spoof him on SNL's Celebrity Jeopardy?? Cracks me up just thinking about that skit :)

Funniest thing ever: I was working on funny things to put on our work calendar, and TODAY is Burt Reynold's birthday. How appropriate! Love the bird design, btw.

Was anyone else able to download the template. Google Docs "said" file wasn't found. Hmph....

I can't paint...but this might be really cool on a huge canvas. I like it...

Hilarious about Burt! Those are really cool, I am thinking about trying one...
