It’s Our Home: Our Name Is On It! (And a Dali Decals Giveaway!)

Note – I was provided with free product to facilitate this review.  However, my honest opinion is shared in this post.

I’ve been sharing quite a few home improvement projects as we make our new house more “ours”.  One of the things that I’ve been anxious to do is put up some vinyl decals.  Because I was starting to feel like, it would feel more like “ours” when we stared personalizing.  You know how it is when you move into a new space – you change the paint, maybe the carpet… I have really been wanting to put up the kids’ names in their rooms.  I loved the vinyl I had in Raya’s old nursery, but one of the first things we did when we put the condo on the market was to take it down.  The beauty of vinyl – it’s removable.  To personalize, and re-personalize.  So when I got the opportunity to work with Dali Decals to review their vinyl – I jumped at the chance!

Now, the previous owners here did not get that memo.  They hand painted in their son’s nursery.  They did a good job on some parts, but the hand-lettering was mess,y and there was a very weird-looking owl on the wall.  Seriously people – vinyl is where it’s at!!  Haha.  It may have worked well for them, but it wasn’t what I wanted MY son’s nursery to say, you know what I mean?

So I sanded, and painted.  And painted.  And sanded.  And painted.  (Fortunately they left an old paint can in the basement so I could order a new can of matching paint!!)  And finally, I had my blank slate.  All I wanted to add was a very simple name:

It’s his room now.  It’s official, because it’s got his name on it.

The tree in the corner was their addition, and that I really do like, fortunately.  I still would have preferred all green leaves, but they were trying to tie in a really horrendous red carpet that we had replaced before we even moved in.  But that’s a minor detail, and I do love trees.  I just encourage EVERYONE to opt for vinyl over paint – it makes changing the little details SO easy!

Like when Roman is older, and can sleep downstairs across the hall from Raya.  And I steal this for my craft room, and put my own vinyl here. ;)

This wasn’t the only decal I ordered.  We have an open floor plan in our living/dining/kitchen, and the really tall ceilings make things feel a little bare.  We had considered putting a big clock up in this space, but the thought of getting up there to dust, or to change the clock twice a year, made me cringe.  So we thought – why not add vinyl here, too?  So I ordered this one as well:

I love how this turned out.  LOVE, with big fat puffy hearts.  It’s 4 feet wide and I even picked my own font for it (thank you, Marisa, for helping me get this perfect for our space!)  This house is ours… it’s got our name on it.  This is the first thing you see when you come up the front stairs.

Now, I have worked with good quality vinyl, and I have worked with some… well, less easy vinyl.  The quality of vinyl affects how easy it is to apply, and this was a snap.  (It really needed to be, when I was up on a 12 foot ladder, applying a 4-foot decal.)  So I was very happy!  The application istructions are included with your vinyl order, including the steps for the hinge method (which is what I used to put up both of these).  Just measure and level, stick it up where you want it with painter’s tape, and apply one half at a time.

I have one last decal I ordered for Raya’s room, but we just chose paint colors this weekend, and it’s recommended you wait at least 2 weeks after painting to apply vinyl decals.  That will be right around her birthday, and I can’t wait to share how that turns out!!  This is what I ordered for her Tinkerbell room:

    I think we have the same crib, mine is just a lighter color! I think… you’ll have to check it out and let me know! =] We actually ordered a decal for above our crib too! I can’t wait to get it up but I am a little nervous about it being perfectly straight because it’s pretty large.
