Cheap Art: Wall Decals

In one of my last posts I mentioned how much I like the idea of wall decals for cheap art, like the one below I have in the nursery. I think as long as you use them sparingly (like 1 or 2 in your entire house, definitely not in every room), they can be fun.

I've been thinking of doing a wall decal in our master bath which has had blank walls for the past 5 years. I found two framed bird prints that I'd like to hang on one wall and maybe a tree decal like a smaller version of these on the adjoining wall... (more to come on that once I get around to that project!):

Here are some other cool wall decals that I came across that I think would be fun to incorporate into a home...

You can create the effect of wall paper with these:

You can create faux frames with wall decals to hang photographs, drawings, etc. in. I'm thinking about doing a wall of these in Stella's future 'big girl' room so she can hang her artwork in them:

Monograms are big right now... why not put one on your wall?!

If you can't afford a real chandelier, this wall decal is a funky substitute:

These would be fun in a sitting area:

I love the wall decals that are pretend furniture, like this coat rack:

Or the faux lamp, potted plant, or headboard (my favorite!) here:

If you had a real front door, unlike us condo-dwellers, you could add these fun number decals:

  1. We are a huge fan of these at our house or maybe I should say "I" am a huge fan. Uppercase Living is my best friend!!

  2. Kim - you'll have to send me some pictures of what you've done with them!
