Like My Pencil Box, I have coveted this lovely-yet-expensive Cole & Son wallpaper for years. The perfect solution? To DIY it yourself by sketching it onto your wall with a pencil, and carefully and patiently going over the pencil marks with a black pen. The result is this exquisite wall that the home owners created themselves. A few hand cramps is better than $200 a roll!

    Beautiful! Is there a blog post somewhere with more detail? I tried googling, but only came up with this post.

    The step-by-step is included in both articles, as it is super-simple. You literally draw it onto your wall with pencil first, then black marker. You can print out an image of the original wallpaper as a guide first here: http://www.cole-and-son.com/collection_detail.asp?collectionid=13
    Hope this helps!
