    So I'm just the normal basic person. Just with an obsession with Apple. :rolleyes:

    So I've decided I want a wallpaper (not for a desktop, a real one) for my room. Anyone know where to find one? :D

    Google Images will likely have plenty of hits.

    Also try interfacelift.com.

    If you find that authentic Apple wallpaper is unavailable, why don't you just make some stencils and paint it yourself? $50 for paint, brushes and materials vs hundreds for wallpaper you will probably want to change in a few years. Google for specific directions. but in a nutshell...

    Go to a craft store and get blank plastic stencil templates.

    Take the picture you want, enlarge it, and print it out. Make overlays for other colors on your design.

    Paint/pounce with a stencil brush. Add highlights as needed.

    If you screw it up or it looks bad, just paint over it.

    Sorry, I cant remember who/where (I am sure someone else will though) but someone did stencil an apple logo on the wall in their room, and than posted a brief guide as to how they did it. I tihnk it was for their computer room- hopefully someone else with more advanced search abilities can lead you on the right path.

    Well, I've decided to paint my own. It'll be a fun weekend project, ha. Maybe I could steal a Genius Bar logo from an Apple Store and put that up too! :p

    Apple's warranty won't cover air bubbles in the paper and I suggest you take out Apple Care as they won't cover peeling or kids drawing on them outside of the year warranty :)

    It might take a while. I'm a very lazy person. And I bet my dear old father will need persuading. I'm younger than you think. :p
