Wall decals, tacky or classy?

the boring brown wall

So, I have this boring wall in our bedroom that has been driving me insane since we moved in. I have been on the hunt for the perfect Starburst mirror, at the perfect price if you know what I mean. I have yet to find one. For a while I have been wanting to make that wall a focal point, since is the first wall you see when you enter our room. I thought of a wall decal of tree branches in white could possibly work but I have yet to find the perfect one as well. Since, I haven't found a mirror or a wall decal that's up to my standard, I guess we can blame that on my OCD. I have decided to do it on my own after coming across a post from the youngsters that inspired me. I will try to recreate a wall of branches or perhaps, I might try something more similar to the oiseaus at fleurs by FSchumacher but not with all the details since I would like to update the Chinoiserie pattern to something more modern. What do you think? Should I take my chances or should I should I just stick to a wall decal? My fear of a decal is that is not going to look finish. It can be scary to take on such a big project specially since I'm not an artist and I am the clumsiest person I know. I would love to start working on it this weekend but being that is the 4th July weekend, it's out of the question. This project along with the one hundred other projects I have in the works, will have to wait until next weekend. Please, let me know what you think. I need some words of encouragement on this one.

I dig vinyl wall art. We have a very family friendly home, so nothing too fussy. Whimsy, fun, comfort, and (oh yeah) easy to clean rule here. I adore the "In this home" list.
What a great example of great wall art.

If you are still looking for a wall decal you might want to try Etsy. There are lots of different shops with a wide variety and they specialize them as well. Very reasonably priced also.

Thanks for visiting my blog!

Whatisblik.com is my favorite site for decals. People think I handpainted mine because they adhere so well to the walls.
