Decorating the walls of your less-than-humble abode is no easy task. Even if you just paint them a shade of your favorite color you’re looking at around $200 for the tiniest of jobs and that doesn’t include the cost of labor. Once you factor in the labor (along with the paint, rollers, multiple coats and all the pizza and beer you have to buy your buddies), you’re probably looking at more than you ever planned on spending. Even if you go that route, it’s still going to be the same lame Sherwin Williams color that anyone else can get, and that’s boring. Scrap the paint idea entirely and go with one of these News Planet Vinyl Wall Maps. Designed by Christian Benini, each vinyl map is composed of different news stories from around the globe and can be sized to the length of the surface you need to cover. It still won’t tell you where in the world Carmen Sandiego is, but at least your walls look better.
