Vinyl Wall Decals--How Easy is That?

Imaginary conversation in my head, when someone first sees my new kitchen artwork...
(them) "How gorgeous is that! How'd you do it?"
(me) "With a very steady hand..."
Just kidding. I would give credit where credit is due.

Earlier this fall while visiting my brother Rick
and his (very creative) wife, Terry,
I spied some nifty wall decals she had on her walls.
She assured me they were very simple to use.
Once I started looking for a place to "install" some,
I found loads of places.
I have several archways that cried out
for some sort of pretty script.
The back door would be the perfect place for an "Entre Vous..."
(Am I remembering my college French correctly?)
The doorway to my office could have my business' name...
the possibilities were endless.
I finally settled upon this wall in my kitchen,
above my small breakfast table.
Next step, finding the PERFECT decal.
I went to the "go-to" place, Etsy.
I have decided, if you can't find what you want at Etsy,
it either doesn't exist or you don't need it in the first place.
The choices are endless.
I found my "my" decal at Willow Creek Signs.
It arrived within four or five days of ordering it.
I kid you not, it took me about fifteen minutes
to have this project finished!
The instructions were clear and to the point.
It could not have been simplier.

The perfect sentiment about the kitchen!
You may have noticed I already have my kitchen Christmas tree in place.
That's ONLY because Buttermilk Cottage's
Second Annual Fiber Art Show and Holiday Sale
is this weekend.
Big doings here this week!

Have a good one!

I'm linking up with the following parties this week:

Between Naps on the Porch for Metamorphosis Monday
First a Dream for the RE-Party

I love the cherry, happy and warm words on your wall. What a difference it makes!

I have 2 decals to put up and have been a little intimidated, but you have given me the inspiration I need. You wall looks wonderful.

It looks wonderful. I love signs and decals are even better. I really love the quilt on you table. What a nice place to sit and have some tea. Thanks for sharing.

Decals are one of my favorite decorating ideas! Yours looks particularly cute!

I love the decal - but I am particularly enamored of the red wall. I'm glad to know someone else who isn't afraid of color!

time of the year.
Must really make
you smile. I used
a decal on my door

stencilling. Hope
