A couple of months ago I was contacted by the company Walls Need Love offering me a chance to try out their wall decals and share my experience. Well, I totally jumped at the chance. They have a large selection of vinyl wall decals. I had such a hard time deciding what to try. I knew which ones I really liked, but then I had to choose the colors — well I had to decide where to put them first so I could figure out what color I wanted. Another tough choice. Well, I finally decided and I love them!
The first one I chose was Love Bird Branch in Chocolate. The decal was quite large, measuring 24″ x 48″ and used transfer tape – basically the vinyl was sandwiched between two pieces of tacky paper to help you transfer the image without distorting it when you put it on. This was definately a two-person job. Thankfully my husband was home at the time and helped out (and Connor too).
I did have trouble with a few tiny spots where the decal didn’t stick. It sort of bubbles up, but they’re two tiny spots that probably wouldn’t bother a normal person. I just smooth them out every time I walk by.
I chose to have a doorway frame the decal. This is the view when you come in the front door of my house. Nice effect.
The other choice I made was for the Bamboo Wall Decals in Warm Grey and Grey. The Warm Grey is the larger size shown (36″ x 18″ sheet) and the Grey is the smaller one shown (24″ x 12″ sheet). These were very simple to put on – just like stickers. Peel and stick. That’s it.
There was a lot of flexibility to this decal since each segment of bamboo and each leaf is put on separately. I cut a few so that the images wouldn’t all line up and be the same height.
I put these in a little nook in the kitchen – under the decal is a small built in desk where the kids have all there coloring and drawing supplies. I choose the colors warm grey and grey to coordinate with the clock we have hanging there. I think it looks really nice. I also chose to wrap the decal around the corner.
Gwyneth really liked this one. As I was putting it together, she recognized it as bamboo and immediately ran off to get her panda bear . . . . so he could have a snack!
