Oooh aaah, super cute right? Only question now, was if I was actually brave enough to do it! I watched and read a billion tutorials on how to do it right... I mean how hard can it be? It's paint, tape and straight lines... nothing fancy... what could go wrong? Well if you have ever used tape and paint you know what you end up with looks nice from far but far from nice! My OCD-ness would just die if I ended up with lines that looked like this!

Another thought that held me back was What if I hate it down the road? Is it going to be a real pain in the butt to change later on? I have real commitment issues when it comes to decor, color or anything too trendy! So after obsessing over it for a while... I decided to take the less-committal road and just put up a tree wall decal instead! :( Not quite what I had in mind but they look pretty cute too... just check out these nurseries!
CheapChicNurseryAnd then I had a DING-DING-DING moment as I was looking for trees (rare but I do get these moments sometimes)! I could just put up wall decal stripes! Does such a thing exist? It must! Especially if they have all these other fancy decals, they must have something as simple as a stripe! So off I set on a mission to find out! Seriously what on earth did we do before google? Anyways, wall decal stripes DO exist and they exist in different colors and thicknesses! Oh the choices!! Of course I ended up choosing white... remember the commitment issues with color? I ordered them from here, but there are a few places that sell them (just google it)!
You would think that once they arrived in the mail, I would be uber excited to slap them on the wall. But I was also uber preggos and really didn't want to do much of anything! So they sat in the box for a good while until we realized we better get the nursery in order before the little monster decided to make her appearance! The stripes come 3 on a giant sheet which is super annoying. It makes it super difficult to apply one stripe while trying not to crinkle the other ones still on the sheet. Husband and I are pretty anal about things being perfect, so these stripes had to be really straight! I was very impressed with these wall decals because we probably peeled and re-adjusted the first stripe a gazillion times and had no problems. Once we got the first one on, the rest was easy peasy lemon squeezy!! Here is the finished project!
Check out the super crisp clean lines!! No paint bleeding here! Pretty sexy if I do say so myself!
No one has even noticed that these stripes are actually decals until I pointed it out! Best part is that they are removable AND reusable! How do you like them apples?
