Picture of Large Scale Vinyl Wall
Painted Accent Walls are for model homes built in 2004; here's to moving on. 
So, what to do with a blank white wall..?

Step 1: Image and Supplies

Picture of Image and Supplies
Supplies: Image, Vinyl sticker backed sheets ($10 from Amazon), razor blade, patience.

First, find an image that will translate well when enlarged and plastered (this project scaled up a 8x11 sheet of paper to about a 5 foot tall image).  Generally something that can be silk-screened makes for a good wall "installation" (blatant art term use).  You should be able to Photoshop select photos into a usable format by essentially making it look like a Warhol (blatant name drop), then converting to black and white.  I chose an icon from a bygone era in one color.  I suppose you could overlay vinyl in several colors, but that is beyond me.  Also, really any image would work with this concept, the determinants being 1) vinyl and 2) your ability to use an x-acto knife.

I'm not sure if craft stores have vinyl sheets, but I would suspect they do. I haven't yet tried to take the vinyl off the wall, but will advise when I do.
