    Planetary Pinball has some really big and cool wall clings which are pretty neat.

    a little opaque projector you can project+magnify+trace any images onto the walls..
    then "paint by numbers" so the walls themselves are totally pinball. after that adding some decorative stuff to the full mural background, as an idea anyway..

    I have gotten this far with my pinball hobby and my wife. If I start painting the walls with pinball murals that will probably start a whole new problem with her.

    aww bummer, thought this was for a large dedicated game room. I used little opaque projectors a lot when I was doing stained glass work, great toy for making cartoons.

    #9 4 years ago

    That projector sounds pretty dam cool though. Maybe someday

    Reach out to practicalsteve and see if he has a way of shipping ya some of the posters he sold at Pin-a-Go-Go this year. They are pretty awesome: https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/the-unofficial-2015-pin-a-go-go-thread/page/17#post-2440793

    I have actually taken the whole side of a pinball cabinet cleaned it off so it would lay flat and screwed them to the walls of my game room. I have a Star wars, Jungle lord, six million dollar man , t-2 , Captain fantastic and a couple of really colorful bingo machines.
    I leave the flipper buttons in . they take up a lot of wall space witch is good if you have a big game room. Also there are 2 sides so you can share one with a buddy or sell / trade the other .

    This is just one of the many things I use for wall art of coarse Back glass is always good too .

    These are suspened from my ceiling, but could be screwed to the wall like Brian says. I've done nine different ones which is enough and I'm out of space for any more......LOL.

    those look VERY cool John, are they cut-outs from actual sideboards? same could be done mounting a decal to sanded painted ply, might be a nice for sale item and look great on a wall maybe mounted with standoff spacers. (3/8 ply saving shipping weight?)

    #15 4 years ago

    Yes they are all actual cabinet sides that were from parted out games that I aquired over several years just for this project.

    I highly recommend Hobby Lobby for pin art and for making toppers. There is a separate mancave section. Don't forget the clearance section; they always have game room related art, etc. Recently got some awesome Monopoly art to hang over the pin.

    And for me, framing and hanging a pinball backglass is the best way to go. I love a good backglass. They do not even need to be lighted.

    I bought this clock on etsy.clock.jpg

    Kind of a nice way to display all the games, now and in the past.

    #25 3 years ago

    John, this was my attempt to create a cutout. It turned out way better than I had hoped. Thanks for the inspiration.

    Nice B&W pinball photo is now available. I don't know why the forum thread hasn't been auto-generated yet, but here's my market listing:

    Here's a wall in my apartment. Put some LED christmas lights behind the inserts on Police Force. The one below I have RGB LED strips around the edge of the playfield shining in.

    The little frames are pinball patents I printed out from Google and put in cheap Ikea frames. Very happy with how they look. Planning on printing larger ones once I get some more walls.

    I just wanted to let all know that my website is up and it contains some pinball / arcade related items. I mostly use nicer woods out of the norm, highly figured, anything that looks wild to me. I'll be making translight / arcade marquee boxes and have a nice pinball rotisserie that works great. I also frame pinball / arcade puzzles, posters, etc.. Check it out, I can bring a few items on Saturday to FPF if anyone has interest.
    Thanks, Bob

    I had some backglass custom framed..... Yep it was pricy do to odd sizes.

    Or you can hang you glass direct using the clips used to hold up mirrors, Image from Home Depot.

    Or just frame pinball advertising.
