Adventures in Wall Decals

I finally purchased this wall decal from Blik and Doodlers Anonymous and it came this week! I mustered up the energy to put it on our wall. The boy acted as quality control.

Here is the before with the pieces pinned up with tape to give me an idea of what it would look like:


And here is the after!:

We used a transfer method. (You can watch this step-by-step on the blik website if you are considering using wall decals.) Kinda nerve-wracking at first (I was scared that I would rip the graphic, especially at the tips of the buildings) but I'm really glad I didn't and that it came out nicely! Overall, a rather easy way to spruce up a wall without painting. Plus, for all you renters out there, this decal is removable just by peeling. 

Huzzah!

I bought wall decals, too, for the baby's room and it was sooooo fun putting them up - almost stress-relieving...I loved peeling the backing off. So liberating. I love your decals...I'm wondering if I should add some to our living area, too.

Mo, it's fantastic! I really love it with your couch and that blue pillow. Great job! I might have to give wall decals a try too.

Thank you! I keep looking at the wall, it's taking some time to get used to haha.

@More Than Rubies: I can see how it's therapeutic, I too liked peeling the paper off. Kinda the way I feel when I clean out my purse.
