This whole room only took me 5 hours to complete. I know you're asking how that could be possible, so I'll explain. First, I drew the horizontal line in pencil for the border, next, I drew little marks for block-sized increments. I first went around the room stamping all red blocks, then blue, etc. I decided that all red blocks would have yellow letters, yellow block would have blue letters, and so on. I wrote a tiny letter in each block, then I went around the room with my alphabet set and the yellow paint, then blue, etc. For the bottom of the wall, I was able to keep the spots evenly spaced by doing the following: I "eyeballed" a 4-block wide section of the lower wall and put 6 spots of each color in each 4-block section. And again, I did all red spots, then switched colors. Piece of cake and it turned out very cute (in my humble opinion).

Thanks! One note about color. First of all, I always do a sample on paper and hang it up for a few days so I can make color changes. In this room I used a really golden yellow instead of a more traditional yellow because it just looked weird and didn't show up well. Also, I used more of a Kelly Green instead of a Christmas Green because the CG was way too dark.
