Easy wall art

I have a confession.  I’m addicted…to vinyl wall art.  There are so many cute designs out there and it’s so stinkin’ easy to apply/remove (GREAT for rentals).  It doesn’t help that there are tons of places out there that you can purchase it from- this only serves to fuel my addiction.  If it were up to me, I’d probably have at least one piece of vinyl wall art in every room of my house- but I think my husband might move out if I were to do that!  Maybe I can just sneak them in slowly over time and he won’t notice…?

Let me show you what I mean.  You already saw the one in the laundry room from yesterday’s post:

Says: Self serve laundry, open 24 hours.  BTW- the runner on the floor are sample carpet tiles that my husband brought home from work.  I just stuck them to the floor using carpet tape- easy peasy.  I don’t mind that they are mismatched- they’re all in the same color family so it works.

I got that one from Belvedere Designs**.  For those of you who are fans of Young House Love, they offer a 15% discount with a promo code (check out YHL’s website for more details).  They also usually have some sort of discount running on certain designs- right now it looks like 20% off a holiday design.  Belvedere Designs have been great to work with and I’ve purchased 2 other wall quotes from them in the past…one for above our bed in the master bedroom (shoot- I don’t have a photo of this one.  Here is a link to the design.  I had it done in the 8″ x 44″ size since we have a queen sized bed.  I picked silver for the color, which actually looks very similar to our wall color in our bedroom, so it just adds a nice shiny detail to above the bed.  Their metallics are the only colors that are shiny, the rest are matte) and one custom piece for our fireplace:

This graphic is normally a headboard, but I had them shrink it to fit the space and add the D in the middle.  They did an awesome job!  See the original design here.  The fireplace mantle looks different since I last took this photo- this will probably always be a changing item in our house.  REALLY looking forward to decorating it for Christmas!

The last graphic in the house is by Leen the Graphics Queen**, who also does an amazing job.  She also offers discounts- friend her business on Facebook and watch for giveaways and posts.  She usually includes a cute little extra with your order as well- I received a little green vinyl bird decal along with the wall art that I ordered- a fun surprise!!  This last piece of art I put in our guest bedroom- I fell in love with it right away.  You’ll have to excuse the terrible photo quality- my camera did not want to take a nice photo of it.

The dandelion is blowing seeds all the way across the wall- it was a huge graphic.  The walls are a more peaceful green than the photo shows and the dandelion is a little more of a creamy yellow.  One day I’m planning on making an upholstered headboard that will go up in place of the photo above the bed.  Just add it to my list of things to do…

So there you have it.  A cheap and easy way to add interest to your walls- and when you get bored with it, just peel it off and put up something new.  Can you see why I’m addicted?
