DIY Painted Wall Design Is Way Cooler Than Any Wallpaper You'll See (PHOTOS)

We can't imagine how much planning went into this DIY.

We're into the look of graphic wallpaper, but between the commitment, messy paste and cost of designer patterns, we usually opt for alternative options.

He posted a slideshow of photos of his process along with the message, "I painted a design on my wall and it came out awesome!" and we really can't argue with that.
