I have been seeing wall decals everywhere. Even Dollar Tree has some available. Using wall decals is an easy and affordable way to decorate and to bring some life into a room.
It's perfect for apartments because most of us in apartments can't paint them (unless you live in New York and you purchased your apartment, in which case you can do whatever the heck you want to do). But for the rest of the country, apartments aren't something you own, but rather somewhere you rent.
Whether you prefer to rent (because lets face it, who wants to pay for maintenance) or if its temporary while you save up to buy a house (eventually that's the goal for us), you want to be able to personalize your space and make it your own. Even if you do own your home, you may not want to paint.
Wall decals are a great option for those who want to personalize and customize their space.
They are easy to put up, come off easy, and can be moved whenever you want to.
I had been contacted by the owners of the website Easy Wall Decal. I was so excited to be able to choose this! We are planning on moving our daughter (now 20 months) from her crib in our room to her her own room. I've been saying I'm going to do that for months now, but I really want to get her out LOL. But I want her room to be decorated, to make it look fun and inviting to her. I want her to feel comfortable. This is an easy way to do that.
I was super excited. I chose this:
It is shipping from China, but it came MUCH faster than the items I order on Amazon that come from China LOL. When I got it, as a bonus it also had this one in it:
I was so excited to put these in her room! I have to admit, I was a bit nervous because I'm not very crafty, and I didn't want to mess it up. They didn't come with "instructions" exactly, but they had an image of what it was supposed to look like with each piece numbered. On the sheet they come on, you can see each piece is numbered, so it helps. So, I followed the numbers, and did my best. I was really surprised when it came out looking great! Once the main pieces are in place, there are many that you can decide where they go. I had my son help me, he really enjoyed doing this with me. I'm going to have to find some for his room now lol.
After about an hour, we finally completed. It took an hour probably because we took our time, and Bella kept interrupting. I had so much fun...
This is what it looks like!
Owls swinging in tree. Its actually pretty tall!
This was the bonus branch (I forgot to take a pic of the little friends that are along the bottom of the wall). The monkey next to the dresser was from something I bought from Kmart. It actually works with the whole theme lol
Up close view of the tree.
The instructions that came with the branch. It is really that small. There isn't any numbers on it to put in order, but it was easy enough to put together.
The instruction for the tree. You can see the numbers. This one was a bit more difficult to put together.
This was the sheet that the parts from the tree came on... You can't really tell, but there are numbers next to where each piece was.
Here is the sheet that he smaller branch came on. You can see each piece is numbered, even though the "instructions" aren't numbered. But it did help when trying to figure out which branch piece went first lol.
This is the only problem I'm having... The branch piece isn't wanting to stay on the wall. Not sure why. Maybe because the AC blows directly onto this wall? I'll figure something out with this one.
If you'd like to check them out, go here to view what they have available. They have some specials on the website that you can take advantage of. They have decor for all rooms, not just children's rooms. Which one will you get? Comment and let me know what you think! Also, any ideas on how to stop that piece from curling up and coming off the wall?
