Yurtgress has ground to a halt around this place – not much has happened at all but I now have cause to smile every time I walk down the hallway. Why is that you ask? Because of the lovely wall decal I now have filling the space over the bathroom door. I must admit that I love wall decals – they allow me to brighten up my walls with flowers or sayings or birds. I’m very fond of birds. In this case I chose a design that I’ve long loved, a cherry blossom. I want to thank Cozy Wall Art for sending the decal at no charge.
Doesn’t it look great? Yeah, I know – it would look AMAZING if there were trim on the door but I don’t think that is going to happen in my lifetime so for now I ignore the lack of trim and focus on the pretty. It makes me smile every time I see it.
It is very easy to put up – the only reason I have any issues at all is because of my health problems. I can’t look up for extended periods and have trouble working with my hands over my head for any length of time. So while this took me the better part of a day to get up it would take a normal person about half an hour. Welcome to my life. It was well worth it though for the happiness it brings me.
First the branch went up. BE SURE YOU GIVE THE SURFACE A GOOD CLEANING. The decal comes with a scraper and very detailed instructions. Use a ruler, blah, blah blah. I’m one of those people who can look at a wall and point to dead center so I never use a measuring tool. Drives the hubby batty. Then I carefully peeled away the backing making sure that it was sticking to the wall.
The flowers came all on one sheet.
I decided to cut them all out to make it easier to put them up. I do not know if this is in the detailed instructions ’cause I did not read them.
Then I took the flowers, starting with the largest ones first and arranged them on the branch. I did not press them firmly at this point. I wanted to be able to see the arrangement from the floor and if I wanted to make changes it was going to be easier if they were still somewhat attached to their backing.
What do you know? I didn’t change a thing. Told you I have an eye! I just love the bright pink on the yellow wall. I’m smiling again just looking at the photo.
I’m beyond thrilled with my Cherry Blossom Wall Decal from Cozy Wall Art.
