Share your own tips, pics and whatever!

Just moved to my own flat like 3 weeks ago and I already did one of the walls near my PC/Turntable corner. Just put shit loads of old flyers and other crap and it looks kinda nice now gotta admit. I just think decorating your own place is kinda essential because it kinda effects everything you do there. I don't wanna live in a place I don't like to look at every time I wake up.

The wall:


(sry about the pic quality, my phone is my only camera atm)

I also ordered these badboys today:

# Restickable Vinyl Wall Decals
# Create your own Mario-themed environment
# Package includes 3, 26" x 40" sheets of decals
# Dozens of removable decals in each package



Just awesome. And the flat being rental I can't really paint or anything, got this huge white wall with nothing on it so this kinda solves the problem. Won't cover the whole wall but most of (y)



Got the MUST HAVE "The Blues Brothers" poster. Fits like a glove. My favourite movie ever, pants down.

And last the best tip I have. Get these wooden things you put to your bathroom where hang like towels and shit, like the one I bought from Ikea cost like... I dunno 2 euros? So basically nothing. Then drill or use like this super two-sided-tape (which I did) and stick em on your wall. What you get:



A cheap good looking recordstands. And everybody knows records are cool. Get the best looking with mad artworks and let the peeps know you have em :teeth:

Hah thats looking slick man. I got a big board and stuck a load of small card flyers on it which i had behind my decks, although its down now.

The other thing which ive yet to do (as ive yet to move out) is get like blue strip lighting and put it around the floor. I really want to just have some like dull low light for chilling in as opposed to all the bright white stuff you need when youre working etc. should be fucking killer though.

Hey, I got my girlfriend that same Totero for her birthday this year (and other stuff too)

Yeah nice place - this post has inspired me to tidy up my room tonight, hang the picture that my parents got me for my birthday, and be a better man...

Tuna's place is nice man, real nice, so nice even I'd think about doing him if I was in his pad and he started laying on the moves...

My room was covered in flyers but I had to take them down because I'm moving, quite excited about putting them up in the new crib actually ha ha!
And cheers Greg, you reminded me I need to put up a photo my parents gave me like nearly 2 years ago. I'm a let down!
Oh & Tuna, those mario stickers are badass!

i got an old copy of 'Color Him Father/'Amen Brother' off eBay, framed it and put it on my wall. I want to get copies of Funky Drummer and other massivly sampled tunes and have a little wall of breaks :p

it will probably end up covered in page 3 girls though but i can dream.

Nice idea with Amen Brother - I'm nicking it. Already got some records on my walls.

I'll take some pics of my place when I get my new camera.
