As mentioned, we have crazy tall ceilings in most of our house. Leading to large expanses of wall.
Inspired by, well, everyone, we opted for a big, wall-spanning decal to take up some room, bring down the ceilings, and add a bit of brighter color to our giant living room walls.
We realized that buying enough frames to fill the wall could potentially set us back another $100 or so; we have plenty of empty space on the walls to re-purpose the art we’re taking down. Instead of spending $200+ on wall art for the rest of the house, we bought the $100 decal, and are shifting around things we already own. This was a smart money move for us!
David started the project when I was out of town.
We moved our record player from a table by the heater to the top of the DVD cabinet a few weeks ago. The record player and speakers were becoming a haven for Margotumbles (what we call the chow‘s hairballs), and we realized we could streamline our audio system by plugging the turntable into a fancy speaker system David got on a lark when he got AmazonPrime.
Also, the turntable did wonders to fill up my freaky ab0ve-the-cabinet-below-the-bulkhead dead zone by the French doors we never use.
We even put a tree by the heater, where the record player used to live.
The treeline fell far short of our ceiling, so we used the extra bird decals to fill up some empty space.
We even added some blades of grass near the front door for more room cohesion. Clearly, we’re into some green– see those dirty TOMs? They’re my favorite shoes, but I think that’s for another post.
Have you installed any decals in your house? How did you choose which ones?
