Inexpensive Wallpaper

I found these old comic books at a thrift shop for only 50 cents each!
I absolutely adore the illustrations so I cut out the most colorful pages and covered one of my walls.
It makes pretty fun wallpaper!

A cool idea but I think it might actually make my comic-collecting husband cry... for the torn pages and their pain... hahaha!

I made Space Invaders on my wall and I really hate it :D The colors are ugly and all looks weird.

Yesterday I went entirely through your blog, and I really, I mean REALLY am inspired. Just saving money for new camera :-)
