I hate blank walls.

For me it's a waste of creative space. Today, my 8 readers (on a good day), here are some solutions for bare walls.

What a fun idea...This site offers wall graffiti. http://secure.wonderfulgraffiti.com/. While you might not like writing on the wall, browse their gallery for some inspiration like the three pics to the right.

In the bedroom, rather than use a headboard, they add a quote.

I would be the coolest kid on the block if I had this Princess-like mirror to the left in my room. All I had was troll dolls and sunflowers.

Here are some others I love…

At your home bar: Always do sober what you said you'd do drunk. That will teach you to keep your mouth shut. -Ernest

The bedroom (or where the magic happens): There is time for work. And time for love. That leaves no other time. - Coco Chanel

Daily Candy alerted me to this next awesome find. The Museum of Modern Art (MOMA) has these super cute giant sticky note pages with blue frames (left). You can doodle away on them and then display your art. The price is really worth it. Giant sticky pads that we use at work are like $20 at Office Max or Staples.

While they are totally fun just to have, you could use these to have an art contest between your friends. Invite people over, supply crayons, markers, glitter, etc. and then judge the creations!

Side Note: My parents used to whip out a dry erase board and some Pictionary at parties. It’s really fun to play – especially when you have been drinking!
