We are three weeks into the school year and summer break seems like it was ages ago. I am shocked at the amount of homework that the kids need to do. I never had homework in kindergarten! It’s okay though, it keeps them busy and I know what they are doing in school.
So I decided I needed to spruce up the desk area. You know, clean it up. Make it more spiffy. Make it easier for the girls to work at. I ordered the Photo Frame WallPrints from Wallternatives. They are brightly colored and made of fabric, not vinyl, so they are repositionable and reusable! Plus they are perfect for displaying photos and artwork, then totally switching up your photos the next week. Infinite possibilities here!
You might remember that I decorated the girls’ room with Wallternatives vinyl decals a few months ago, and I am still in love with them.
I have a history of failing at gallery walls. I mess with them. I put too many holes in the walls. I crave symmetry and I just never feel like they look right. So it took a little motivation to get this project started. I unwrapped the package and cut between the frames to separate them.
I started by taping these babies to the wall. Oh look at how uneven they are. So I pulled out my long yard stick with the level. Then I remembered some wise words from the Mr. “There’s a level on your phone.” Oh yes! There is a level in my iPhone! It’s in yours too! You should use it. I did.
Once straight to your satisfaction, use the little Wallternatives™ Squeegee, which comes with the decal. Just smooth it across the decal.
The hardest part of using these Wallternatives Photo Frames was choosing what to put inside of them. There’s just too many possibilities!
I wish Wallternatives was around when I was in college living in the dorm and the sorority. I remember that we couldn’t nail anything into those dingy walls and it seems that all the posters out there were motivational, pictures of kittens or maybe a boy band (I may or may not have had an ‘N Sync poster, kidding.)
Check out some of these other decals from Wallternatives…
I’m in love with these gold Stars Vinyl Pattern Pack Minis. Like so in love that I’ve already bought them. Coming soon to a craft room near me.
And if you really want to make your dorm room look dramatically different go for the Bee Sweet Bonnie Christine Removable Wallpaper.
Of course you can still decorate your dorm room with motivational messages…but they are a lot cooler now.
