Last fall some of you may have remembered me asking if any of you had any suggestions for a White Sox mural/wallpaper (found here (http://www.whitesoxinteractive.com/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=93031&highlight=mural%2C+wallpaper)) - some did, some didn't, but I went along w/ my plan, found the picture, and size I wanted, and well, here is the final result. I hope you like it as much as my son and I do.

Wow! That is awesome, really nice job, man.

I might get that wallpaper of US Cellular for my own room... the ladies will love it.

Wow! Very nice. I had that same White Sox wallpaper in my bedroom when I was younger. And the picture from the World Series came out great. How can a kid not enjoy that.

I wonder what my wife would think if she came home and found our bedroom looked like that?

LOL! Heavens no! I slept in there with my son the first night and we stared at the mural and I see something new each time I stare at it.

BTW - it's pitch one, game one. :cool:

If it is, I'm just as guilty of being jealous as you are! :wink:

No, but is it more for the kid or the dad?

Can you tell me how much it cost to get a photo blown up to wall size?

I never checked into getting a photo blown up to wall-size, but a MLB licensed (more $$$) 8' x 12' mural is roughly four bills.

I am awestruck. My son would love a room like this -- and he's already 11.

It just makes me think . . . I was 46 when I saw the White Sox win it all, and my son was 9. To have that experience cement your relationship with your favorite baseball team at an early age is a priceless gift in this town.

Enjoy your son, and revel in the experience of sharing the Sox with him!

That looks almost exactly like my room when I was little. I'm gonna buck the trend and say, "Sweet pajamas!"

Outstanding job, Craw! Probably a little more moolah for that mural than this guy would be willing to cough up for a son's bedroom....but not more than I might be willing to spend on a family room makeover... :tongue:

You are just saying that because you have a matching pair!

Super sweet. You've got my wheels spinning as my son is two (born game one of the 2005 ALDS early enough in the morning for me to make it to the game). I wonder if I can get an old comiskey version made?

I wonder if my cub loving son-in-law would allow this for my granddaughter's and grandson's rooms.
My daughter would love it.

I thought about it for a long time, and yes, it was a large chunk of change to spend, but when he grows tired of it (if he does), dear old Dad is moving in!

I've wanted to redo a room like this ever since I saw the mural was available from MLB.:thumbsup:

I'm going to have to borrow your designer when I (God willing) have my son(s).
That looks amazing. Very nice job.

Probably. You'd have to consult an expert on that.
