RAINDROP WALL DECALS

January 23, 2014

When designing Ruby’s bathroom, I wanted the room to be soft, yet colorful and fun.  I originally wanted to use wallpaper, but we wanted to keep this room under a budget, and usually the wallpaper styles I’m in love with come with a hefty price tag.  A friend told me about Walls by Mur, and I had been keeping their products in mind for a future project.  They were perfect for the bathroom.

Before I did anything with the design, I had to get the walls ready.  I painted them a nice clean white, then painted the ceiling a pretty soft coral/pink.  I wanted to draw your eye up, add an unexpected pop of color, and soften the room a bit, as it was all white from top to bottom.  I also replaced all of the moulding around the door, and put in new baseboards.

I selected the Small Fry Drops (now on sale!) in soft gray.  I ordered three sets of 46.  They came in sheets.  The first thing I needed to do was layout where I wanted them to go.

Because raindrops are kind of haphazard naturally, I didn’t want them to be spaced too perfectly so I decided to just eyeball it.  I used post-its to lay out the pattern.

After getting the post-its in place, I simply peeled off a raindrop, then replaced the sticky note.  The decals peeled off really easily and they were just the right amount of sticky.  They stay in place, but if I wanted to reposition it, I could peel it off and re-stick it.  I used a ruler’s edge to smooth out any air bubbles.

It was pretty fun peeling and sticking, and it took a Ruby nap and I was done.  It was so darn easy.  And I just love how they turned out!

Such a simple project and so much easier and less expensive than wallpaper.  Just what this room needed.  You can see the rest of the bathroom here.

  1. I love this space. I loved those towels when I saw them at Target, but sadly had nowhere for them to go…and I really have to stop redecorating everytime I find something like that just so it fits in. LOL.

    This is beautiful. I am a huge fan of both wallpaper and wall decals; but am lately preferring the latter over the former. Although the wallpaper that I buy is inexpensive (either eBay or the Dollar Store of all places!!), I find that applying it is so tedious and over time I don’t like how it can shift and move. The wallpaper in this room <<>> is from the Dollar Store.

    Wall decals are much easier and more fun to apply, and they will always be unique from anyone else who purchases the same ones. I am especially in love with our decal in our upstairs bedroom <<>>.

    Love it! Thanks for posting! Truly a great way to decorate. I think simple wall decals (with class) can really add life to any room. I recently bought some wall silhouettes (safari animals) from http://www.LifeSizeSilhouettes.com to dress up my boy’s room. What a difference! I was really pleased with them. Keep up the good ideas!
