Do you have an idea for decorating a room but are not sure how to do it? Have you ever considered using wall graphics decals to do the decorating? They are a great way to decorate a room because they are easy to use and non-permanent.

Let's say you would like to stripe a room. I did this once in my dining room inmy home. I painted the room the base color that I wanted. After the paint dried, I measured what the perimeter of the room would be. I then decided approximately how wide I wanted the stripes to be and did some dividing to come up with equalmeasurements that would fill the room. It is a bit tricky coming up with the measurements for this, but not impossible.

The next step is measuring each width on the top and bottom of the wall making sure that the marks are correct using a level. Then after doing all of these markings, you have toplace the tape around the wall to block the areas where you don't want the different colored paint to go. This process is very long and tedious.

Now you paint the walls the different color and wait for this paint to dry.

After the paint is dry, you must remove the tape to view the finished product. Unfortunately, sometimes the tape pulls part of the paint off with it and you don't have the perfect lines that you were hoping for. Very frustrating!!! And then when I decided to redecorate the room at a later date, I had to do some sanding where the lines where because the second color of paint was a tiny bit raised from the first color.

I can tell you that the next project that I did, I used wall graphics decals instead. These decals are made of vinyl and are designed for the walls. You can pick out the decals that you like from the various websites online, or you can design your own and submit them. The wall graphics decals arrived on a sheet of paper with a special application tool. I moved the paper around on the walluntil I found the exact spot I wanted it, then I used the applicator to transfer the decal. It was so easy to use!

I have stencilled borders before. I have used sponges to blot designs on the walls. I have used stamps. You name it, I have tried it. But these decals are great! They come off very easily too when you want to change the look of the room. And they don't leave that ridge of paint that needs to be sanded down like the other things I have used have.

From what I have seen, you can have almost anything made into these wall graphics decals. One thing that I considered doing in my kitchen is writing words on the walls as a type of border. This was something that I couldn't do on my own, so I contacted someone who said she could do this for me. It was going to cost a fortune because she would have to have special stencils made, etc., etc. I decided to forget about it. Then I found out that you can getany words made into these decals for a fraction of the price!

Well, I guess you know what my next project is! I will be deciding which words or sayings I want to put up as a border around my kitchen.If you are getting ready to do some decorating, you should consider wall graphics decals too.You will love them!
