I thought I'd show you some places where I've either used a wall decal or where I've painted sayings onto the wall.This is in our master bathroom and it's what you see when you step out of the shower. A reminder to "Seize the Day". I painted it the same way I did on this sign.
I painted this a year ago above a chalkboard I painted. We have family movie night every Friday. So this is where I list our "coming attraction". It's the first time I painted lettering on a wall so it's a bit messy!
"There's no place like home". This is a wall decal that I cut up and put on the risers of my stairs. It's been there for over two years now and I think it's time to do something different. I may paint a design on the risers. Another project on my "want to do" list!
This is in my guest bedroom "Sweet Dreams". That frame was originally dark brown. I got it brand new (it still had the hanging hook in a bag on it) from the...where else...Thriftstore! I spray painted it white. I think I might change the saying to "Be Our Guest". It was hard to work with white paint and it started to turn gray on the bottom because it mixed with the artists charcoal I used to transfer the words - something to remember! It would probably have been better to use white crayon to do that transfer. It's not my favorite. Maybe a different color for the lettering?
This is a wall decal. They're everywhere now! You used to only be able to get them online and through catalogs. Now everyone - Target, Hobby Lobby, Linens N Things etc, they all have them. Although the selection online is much much better!
Speaking of decals...Target had some on clearance last week and I bought one of these for me and one for you! Only I had to return mine as I couldn't find an appropriate wall that could handle the size. The lettering is about 6 1/2 x 38 1/2 and there are two decals. So if you'd like to be entered into a drawing for this "Welcome Friends" decal just say so in your comment. You have to say that you want it to be entered because I'm sure there are people that don't have the space for it or maybe it's not their style. There's no use giving it to someone who won't be able to use it. As always, you don't have to have a blog just an email addy. I'll announce the winner on my Friday post. Let's say midnight PST on Thursday is the cut off. Just my way of sharing a good deal with you and saying thank you all for being such wonderful blog friends!
