diy … wall decals: adding color without paint or a hammer

I’ll admit, painting a wall or hanging a picture takes some commitment.  For some painting is no sweat, but for others painting is a daunting task and hammering a nail in the wall is a deal breaker.  For these reasons, the growing trend and endless possibilities of wall decals is the perfect solution!

Wall decal, wall sticker, wall art; call it what you will, I think they are great! It can be a small wall border or cut out or a large mural that covers an entire wall.  They are removable (and sometimes reusable) graphic art that can easily be applied to many different smooth surfaces, walls being the most common.

For renters, wall decals allow you to add colour and personality to your living space without putting a hole in the wall and having to repaint on move out day.  For children, who grow up fast and change their style often, wall decals are a quick and fun way to update a room with little expense.

I recently completed a project for a toddler’s bedroom that included a custom wall decal and wanted to share it with you.  Although time consuming (each little leaf was placed individually) it was fairly simple to install and well worth the end result. http://www.etsy.com/shop/wallartdesign
