Something Clever About Books

Mostly reblogging things about books, Sherlock, Jane Austen and many things British

thesugarquills:

We painted the 221b wallpaper for less than $20.

By using coupons to buy multiple canvas packs, fun foam, and paint at Michael’s, we were able to use nine 16x20 canvases and one cork board to give the impression of wallpaper and a case wall.

Since the case wall is on cork, we can change it as often as we like.

Total time took 6 hours with scienceofcumberbatch tracing almost all of the stencils, and pickanycard and thesugarquills (myself) doing most of the painting… We even painted through the earthquake.
