Wall Decal Review and GIVEAWAY (Giveaway Closed)

About the Sponsor: Dezign with a Z

Dezign with a Z  specializes in home and office wall decor, specifically in the form of vinyl wall decorations. They were so kind as to send me samples of the following designs to try in my home and to provide a $30 gift certificate to one of you!!!  I received...


Polka Dots
(in orange)

Polka Dots wall decals and wall sticker



Butterflies
(in orange and grey)

Butterflies wall stickers




Sea Creatures wall decal pack


My Experience with the Product

The stickers and decals come in multiple sizes to meet the needs of your projects. We received the smaller versions of Sea Creatures and Polka Dots, so our results will look different from the company photos above.

The package arrived in a cylinder and included directions and a squeegee along with our decals. As necessary, the decals are covered in transfer tape, to make placement on walls, glass, metal, and smooth wood easier.  
Here's a snapshot of their directions...
1. Rub the transfer tape with the squeegee.
2. Remove the bottom layer of paper.
3. Arrange the decal where you want it and rub it down by hand, then with the squeegee.
5. Slowly pull the transfer tape away.
6. Rub the decal once more with the squeegee.
*Consult the manufacturer's directions and resources for more details before using the product!

Trial 1: Polka Dots
We first applied the polka dots in my son's room. Following the directions was easy, but due to being decor-challenged, I had a very hard time with the project. As frustrating as it was to stick, remove, and restick, OVER AND OVER AGAIN, it did go to show how durable the products are! They held up to my indecision quite well!!!



While I was trying trying to make up my mind on this project, my 3 year old somehow managed to punch this hole in her brother's wall with deer antlers she found in his closet...




Their immediate response was, "Put a dot here!!!!" And it hit me how wonderful these decals would be for covering up mars in your wall! So, he now has a butterfly over the hole. It's actually quite lovely and hides the hole perfectly.



Trial 2: Butterflies
I placed the rest of the butterflies in my daughter's room...



Trial 3: Sea Creatures
I placed the Sea Creature decals on the children's bathroom walls. I cut the pieces apart and only applied one at a time. This is what it looks like when you peel the backing off and apply the decal with the transfer tape...





And this is the result...




I think it's adorable :) My daughter said, "It's a Nemo room!"

The Bottom Line

The decals produced by Dezign with a Z are made of quality materials that stand up to the claims the company makes. They are stylish, affordable and easy to install. They would be great to...
