Design with Vinyl Review & Giveaway {Chinese New Year Hop}

by Mama Chocolate on January 12, 2012

Vinyl decals for walls are becoming the new “thing” for home decor.

It’s not hard to see why…with so many design options and easy application (and removal!) it’s the ideal decorating option!

We were sent removable vinyl lettering to review for our home from

2011 - Dec 8042011 - Dec 808

It was awesome. We were able to pick out the words, the font, the size and the color of the lettering. Design with Vinyl has many image or quote options already available to pick from, but their Design Center is super easy to use, and John had a specific quote in mind he wanted to use.

2011 - Dec 8092011 - Dec 815

I let my perfectionist hubby take over the application of the decal, and was planning on posting a video of how easy it is to apply.

Unfortunately, even though it was very easy to apply, my super-careful darlin’ took ages to get it up there and I didn’t want to put ya’ll through that. ;-)

The directions for application are available on the website and are also sent to you with the decal. The directions that were sent to us even had very helpful sketches on how best to apply your design to get the end result of a quality decoration.

2011 - Dec 867

Look how awesome it turned out. This quote totally embodies my man, and we are both loving it. He has come home several times since we put it up, and said, “Man, doesn’t that look awesome?!”
