I am so excited. In thirty minutes, I completely transformed my bathroom using Muralette Wall Decals. My blah blah boring bathroom is now a fishie-themed wonderland that fascinates my toddler.
I should note that I’m not particularly gifted as an artist. Other “easy” projects like stenciling have not turned out well, but I found the Muralette Wall Decals easy-to-use. I love this idiot-proof decorating kit!
I received a sample of the Fishie Kit, which contains 19 fish, 30 bubbles, 1 jellyfish, 1 large coral, 3 coral add-ons, 14 sea grasses, 2 large kelp and 2 kelp add-ons. As advised, I cut out the shapes and positioned them on the wall with tape in order to test out various looks. Then, I just peeled the decals off the backing and pressed them firmly onto the wall. Ta da!
Since the decals were scanned directly from actual paintings, you can see brush-strokes and other details that make the end result seem more like a real painting than a sticker.
Currently, Magpie Decorative Painting offers 4 Muralette Designs– Fishies, Garden of Posies, Branch and Birds, and Polka. These designs are sweet enough for children’s bedrooms and perfect for creating themed-nurseries. The Branch and Birds design is particularly elegant and wouldn’t look out of place in your living room. At $85 each, Muralettes are an inexpensive way to decorate a room in under 30 minutes. You can find them online at www.magpiepainting.com.
