Dali Decals

Dali Wall Decals - Jacksonville, FL
We just received our Dali Decal order for the guest bedroom! Since moving into our new home, we've been searching for the right decor for each room, but coming up short. Many steps were taken roaming the aisles of Target, Marshalls, Pottery Barn, Pier 1 Imports, etc. but we weren't drawn to anything. I finally decided on a duvet set that was a little out of the ordinary for my taste, with lighter colors and a leafy, nature-like design. Since we ended up loving it, our next focus became wall art. Typically I'm a canvas or frame person, but after searching the DaliDecals.com site and finding the Asian Paper Cut Design decal, I was so excited to try it! When I showed my husband the design and told him it was a decal, his immediate reaction was, "No holes in the walls and no need to repaint afterward? Let's go for it." 


Luckily we had painted about a month ago, so we didn't need to worry about the two week recommendation that Dali Decals gives before using decals if you've just painted your walls. Very good to know though! Putting our decal on  wasn't difficult, but I definitely recommend making it a two person job if you have a large one. We both read the directions carefully and it seemed straight forward. They recommend using painters tape, a level, and a measuring tape for extra assistance. We used the painters tape and eyeballed the rest of it. (I'm kicking myself for not grabbing the camera until we were totally finished, so that we could show the step by step!)
I love the detail!
(even with the poor picture quality of my camera)
How we applied it:
1. Our decal was one big piece, so we didn't need to cut it first. We decided where we wanted it, then tape it down on the corners with painters tape, as well as one long piece down the middle.
2. We chose to work on the right half first, carefully peeling the backing from it, then cutting the backing with scissors to get it out of the way. 
3. We carefully pulled the right half of the decal taut and placed it on the wall. 
4. Using the tool that Dali Decals provides, we rubbed the decal on in a sunburst motion to get out all of the bubbles and be sure that the decal had adhered to the wall well enough.
5. Then we repeated steps 1-4 with the left side!
6. Final step, we carefully peeled away the top paper and ta-da! It worked that easily! 

**Of course this is a brief description of how we applied it, and not intended to be a substitute for the Dali Decal directions!


I think it really adds a unique touch to our guest room. It's something we would have never found in our local stores and we've already received a lot of compliments and questions about where we found it. I'm thinking of ordering the holiday decals they have for our entry way. It'll be so nice to be able to be festive without worrying about ruining our walls! They have adorable nursery and children's room decals as well.
