lettering on my walls

Photobucket

I have seen this on people's blogs and I wanted to try this. It was easy to do. I ordered the letters above from Amazon here

You first cut out what you want and place it on the wall with masking tape. Then you flip it upward using the tape as a hinge. You peel the backing off. Then you place it back down without the backing .

You use a hard but gentle edged instrument like a paint stick or tongue depressor. I first used a squeegee and then a paint stick to rub over the semi-transparent top layer to secure the lettering to the wall. Then you gently peel off the sticky top layer.....and you are done.!!

This product was easy to use. There are some products that are not easy---I had no problem with this one and it only took minutes.

PS. It says you can remove it with the heat of a hair dryer to help!

  2. Your lettering looks fantastic. I would love to try this one day.
    Thanks for your comment. For breakfast in England most people eat cereal and toast. A traditional english breakfast that you would get in a hotel or B&B is a cooked breakfast that contists of fried egg, bacon, sausage, beans, mushrooms, tomatoes. It's lovely for a treat but I couldn't eat it everyday!

  3. That looks really nice. I have seen more of this kind of thing lately. Is it hard to get off if you want to take it down some day? I guess if you were changing that, you might be changing other decoration, too, and needing to paint or touch up anyway.

  4. What a great idea! I really like that! I haven't tried it yet..but maybe one day. My DIL from Germany has done this in several rooms...but she buys actual wooden letters and paints them black. So cute for a newly married couple. LOVE...FAMILY etc.

    I love the words you chose too. Such a perfect motto.

  6. The lettering looks great! I have been wanting to try this too..
    Your good by to your cottage was so sweet, Gary and I are in the process of creating the "Simpler life" for us also.
    Gary is 63 and wants to retire so we are going to sale the two homes we own and buy a smaller simpler home so we can just pick up and travel all we want too! We hope to be retired by Jan. 2012 so keep your fingers crossed for us..
    Have a sweet day and hugs, Elizabeth
